Lydney Group - Set To Break £30 Million Barrier

Doubling the size of its manufacturing bases in Gloucestershire and Lancashire in 2007 has put portable steel building specialists Lydney Group on track for a turnover of £30million for the first time in its 25 years’ history.
The company, incorporating Lydney Modular and Lydney Container divisions, now employs 163 in Lydney, Gloucestershire, and 85 in Skelmersdale, Lancs, and is the UK’s largest supplier of steel portable accommodation and anti-vandal storage containers.
This year’s record turnover is supported by the company’s recent move from a 42,000 sq ft site at Newton le Willows to the 84,000 sq ft Skelmersdale site, and expanding its Lydney site from 65,000 sq ft to 123,000 sq ft, creating 51 new jobs across the board. Its range of tough welded steel units include industrial storage, welfare units, canteens, offices, classrooms, toilets, shower blocks and changing rooms, up to three stories high, and modular steel-framed accommodation units up to four stories high.
“The main growth area for the group is in modular buildings though,” said MD Andy Burrow. “And whilst that has initially been in the construction, education and medical sectors, we are able to service a wide range of customer requirements.”
“2008 is set to become our best year ever with annual turnover jumping from just over £24million to over £30million for the first time. When I joined the company in 2000, the turnover was £12million.
“Our main strengths over our competitors lie in our ability to finish products on site to a high standard because of our great teams at Lydney and Skelmersdale and in the variety of products, speed of installation and value for money.
“All our all-metal units are welded in top quality steel and come with a 12 months warranty. Our galvanised steel-framed, panelled modular buildings also come with a 15 year guarantee on the frames and 12 months on the panels.
“By having two manufacturing sites in the UK we also cut the cost of transportation for our customers, which can be a major expense.
“With the modular building range, it is also easy to replace individual panels in case of damage at a later date. They just bolt on and of course it is very easy to refurbish or modify the building at any time in the future.
“And, once on site, installation is very fast. It’s just like a giant Meccano set.
You only have to prepare the ground - it’s true off-site construction. Once installed all we have to do is cap the joints, finish the floor and just ‘wash and go’ for a turnkey operation.
“Our ISO 14001 environmental management accreditation should be in place by the end of the year and we have been working closely with our customers to incorporate environmental technologies into our products. For instance we are the first supplier to offer double glazed windows as standard in our steel units.
“We are also looking at green options such as energy-saving movement sensors which switch the lights off if there is no movement after a certain length of time and we have been investigating under-floor heating, wind turbines and water saving technologies within the modular buildings and are working with our customers to include these in the near future.
“For installation we have our own Lifting Services Division with a new HB45 mobile crane which is also available for hire separately.
“What we strive to do at Lydney Group is to deliver the best possible product and service to our customer requirements and it is consistently delivering these objectives that has allowed us to grow and be successful.”
