Leading paving and walling manufacturer Tobermore celebrates the completion of a new state-of-the-art Production Facility. The £10million factory is now live and operational creating dozens of local jobs and significantly increasing manufacturing capacity.

Earlier this year, Tobermore announced £30million investment and the creation of 95 jobs to fulfil ambitious growth plans. The company has ramped up production in response to a surge in market demand for their hard landscaping products.

David Henderson (Owner & Managing Director) and Trevor Smyth (Works Manager) celebrate the first blocks produced in Tobermore’s new £10million Factory.

The new plant, which opened this week, has a gross internal floor area (GIFA) of 4416m² and has created dozens of local jobs across many departments including production, despatch sales and administration. This is Tobermore’s fourth block paving manufacturing facility and is projected to increase production capacity by over 30%.

Tobermore prides itself on investing in world-class machinery that produces products of unrivalled quality. The latest factory houses another impressive HESS block paving machine which guarantees quality and efficiency. Widely regarded as the ‘best paving and walling plant in the world’, Tobermore has welcomed manufacturers from all over the globe to see their outstanding plant first-hand.

David Henderson, Managing Director of Tobermore, commented on the investment:

“I am extremely proud that our new factory is now operational. This is an astonishing achievement! This new plant will give us significantly increased capacity to make another one million square metres of block paving per year.”

“Amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic, where many firms are struggling, we recognise how fortunate we are to be able to undertake this level of capital investment and job creation.”

“We are already looking forward to 2021 when we will be able to take huge amounts of new business on board.”
