Contract awarded to restore business premises wrecked by fire

Yorkshire-based MNA Group has secured a £400,000 contract to rebuild the roof of P Waddington & Co’s rendering plant on the outskirts of Bradford, which was badly damaged by fire in November last year.

At the height of the blaze in Buck Street, which engulfed the roof of the building, more than a dozen fire engines and 60 firefighters were at the scene battling the flames. No-one was hurt in the blaze.

P Waddington and Co, which processes animal by-products and fallen stock, has hired MNA Group’s roofing and cladding division to rebuild the badly damaged building as part of its efforts to get it back up and running after the devastating fire.

MNA Group operates across four specialist divisions – Height Safety, Building and Construction, Roofing and Cladding, and Health and Safety.

It has its head office in Goole, East Yorkshire, but also has an office in Bradford.

Operations and sales director, Richard Bloodworth, said: “As a team, we have many years of experience in providing roofing and cladding services to customers and we’re pleased to have been asked to rebuild P Waddington and Co’s Buck Street premises in Bradford.

“It was incredibly sad to see the building gutted by fire last year, so it’s good to be able to play our part in getting in back up and running again.”
