Ultraframe Expands Site and Workforce as New Opportunities Beckon
Ultraframe has announced plans to expand its workforce and cited “exciting new opportunities” as the driver, along with the post-lockdown boom that shows no signs of slowing down. The Clitheroe based company is also expanding its operations, with the addition of a 60,000 sq ft facility close by to its 350,000 sq ft Ribble Valley HQ.
Commenting on the expansion plans, Ultraframe Operations Director, Andy Crowe, said: “Our growth plan for the next few years will see Ultraframe working on some extremely exciting opportunities and we’re looking to build our team across the business, as well as expanding our infrastructure. As an employer of choice in the Ribble Valley, we offer many benefits to job seekers and our existing loyal staff, and of course, we offer this same stability and security to our customers. We’ve been engineering and manufacturing roofing systems from our Clitheroe factory for over 35 years and there are already over two million Ultraframe roofs on homes across the UK. Over the coming years, that number is set to rise greatly. This latest phase of our company development allows fabricators and installers to see that partnering with Ultraframe offers great stability to their business, along with the chance to offer our constantly evolving product range. There are many opportunities in the marketplace right now and we believe that Ultraframe customers are best placed to prosper and build strong, sustainable business for the future.”
Ultraframe was founded in 1983 by Clitheroe businessman John Lancaster who revolutionised the conservatory sector with the development of the first conservatory roof system. Since then, the company has continued to be driven by innovation and has designed many products that have changed the way that homes are extended, always with the focus on natural light. Many of its systems and products have been recognised with national awards and certification from independent bodies such as the BBA and LABC.
