As part of our continued capital investment strategy as roof truss manufacturers, we have invested £40,000 in a state-of-the-art butterfly table from Shropshire Engineering Specialist A V Birch. The new table will allow us further expansion in the production of timber frames, as well as doubling our production capacity for spandrel panels.
The first of it’s kind to be manufactured by A V Birch in the UK, the butterfly table will allow our manufacturing team at Fencehouse to quickly and safely turn huge timber frames and spandrel panels, replacing the need for the use of cranes.
Director Steve Harris said: “As our Company continues to grow so does our product offering as roof truss manufacturers, and we are pleased to now offer customers a complete off-site manufacturing solution for timber frames, roof trusses, spandrel panels and joists. The new Butterfly Table will help us to keep up with the UK construction industry’s increasing demand for pre-fabricated and off-site manufactured products.”
A V Birches Timber Engineering Director Scott Heyes said: “The butterfly table is unique because it features an innovative roller system which seamlessly moves the panels off the butterfly table and onto a set of wheels for easy transportation into the holding area. It’s a clever mechanism which removes the need for forklift trucks and aims to speed up overall production process for timber manufacturers.”
We manufacture roof trusses for major house and commercial builders across the UK including Taylor Wimpney and Persimmon Homes. Recent work has included major projects for Travel Lodge at Manchester and Birmingham airport. Our company which began trading with three staff and two machines in 2006 now employs over twenty staff, has ten machines and in 2016 turned over more than £2 million.
