Tarpaulin firm covers growth ambitions with Black Country relocation
A manufacturer of commercial tarpaulins and marquees has moved to new premises in the Black Country.
Net and Cover Services is moving to Building 53C, Bay 7, The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford, after agreeing a three-year lease with LCP, which owns and manages the site.
Gary Waterhouse, who launched the company 10 years ago, is moving from the Bridge Trading Estate in Stourbridge, to take the 746 sq ft unit and now hopes the larger, more modern premises with separate office will enable him to grow his business.
“I needed to move to a ground-floor unit because it’s hard work carrying up stairs rolls of tarpaulin that weigh more than nine stone,” he said. “The new unit is ideal because it is modern and light, has a separate office and is also about 50 sq ft bigger.
“I put a sign outside saying that I’ll be opening on April 17 and had two calls from potential customers within a couple of hours, which is great. I’m looking forward to relocating the business.”
Net and Cover Services manufactures a wide range of tarpaulin products, from banners and boat covers to market stall covers and lorry sheets and side curtains, and has customers across the UK.
Paula James, LCP industrial lettings manager, said: “The Pensnett Estate has a wide range of premises that accommodate the smallest businesses to large, multi-nationals, and we’re very pleased to have been able to find Net Covers and Services a suitable unit.”
