Shropshire based concrete block firm Besblock has invested in expanding its business to cover more of the UK. The long-established family firm, formed in 1972, recently announced further plans to invest in technology and environmentally friendly vehicles.
With the government pledging to build one million houses before 2020, the need for speed in housebuilding has never been greater and with Besblock producing an impressive ten miles of concrete blocks a day, it is more than possible for them to meet the soaring demands from the national housebuilders.
The Shropshire-based firm has been able to achieve this incredible figure by structuring the production of blocks with logistical shift patterns which is supported by an increased number of staff.
The investment in up to date machinery allows the company to further increase block production, whilst protecting the environment. The company is keen to further expand production as the market grows and the demand increases in order to meet the ambitious government target.
