We are pleased to announce that we have acquired a major site in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, to enable significant expansion plans. The multi-million pound investment at Newhouse follows three years of substantial growth in the UK market.
The new facility will increase assembly and production capacity, support innovations in product designs and technology, deliver essential training, showcase products and provide much-needed warehousing and office space.
“Our decision to come to this larger site in Chepstow is essential so we can keep growing,” said AluK’s managing director Russell Yates. “Over the past three years we have outgrown our facilities in Newport and the Newhouse site means we can now invest in new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant and create more jobs.
“We have offered everyone in Newport the chance to come to Newhouse and we will be creating new jobs as well, so it’s an exciting opportunity for us and the South Wales region. We will also be working closely with Monmouthshire County Council and the Enterprise Directorate to help deliver further growth to the area.”
Paul Matthews, Chief Executive of Monmouthshire County Council, said: "I am delighted to welcome AluK to Monmouthshire. I am really impressed by the company’s vision and values, and welcome their decision to not only invest in this region, but also to continue to grow their business. It is a real coup for us and I look forward to a strong relationship."
The site was formerly owned by Mabey Group and its Chief Executive Juliette Stacey added: “We were determined to find a quality organisation committed to providing real, long-term investment in Chepstow, and in AluK we have found just that. Our focus is on our skilled factory teams and specialist engineers at Lydney where we design and manufacture bridges for the UK market and export around the world.”
