06/02/18 PVC/GRP stacks leaving Roperhurst's Barry premises

Much excitement today as our pre-loaded framework of PVC/GRP stacks left the factory in Barry and started their journey to our site in Oxford.

These pre-loaded stack assemblies represent the final stages of a project started in the summer of 2017.  They will be transported with an escort vehicle and, using a 300 tonne crane, liifted over existing buildings and lowered into position later this week.  Once in their new home, they will be connected to existing ranges of PVC and PVC/GRP ductwork that has been faricated in our Barry factory and installed throughout the new building extension by our site teams, terminating at multiple fume cupboards and extract points.
