Work has now started to demolish the office block at Banbury’s Norbar Torque Tools on Wildmere Road.

The firm is set to bring its employees from their other site on Beaumont Road into a new building which will bring the whole business together under one roof. It hasn’t been plain sailing for the firm though as the discovery of asbestos in the structure resulted in a one-month delay.

Philip Brodey, sales director at Norbar, is pictured above. He said: “The building was sheathed in polythene so that asbestos could be removed in a safe manner. It is a huge relief to have this process behind us and to be making visible progress. We are all very much looking forward to being back under one roof.”
