The Beaumont Road site now sports a modern looking silver and red frontage with a spacious and airy reception area.

General manager, Tony Park, said: “We’re a long standing company, we’ve been here over 30 years and we have invested, over the last three years, £15 miillion. Part of that investment is in machinery and equipment but also the facilities including the frontage.
