Expansion has always been part of the North Valley Forge mindset, having gone from regional supplier to a major UK manufacturer and supply centre for wrought iron gates, wrought iron components and gate automation.
The company has now extended its operations to Birmingham, with a new secondary base in West Bromwich.
"We had been looking at various locations" said Darren Weatherill, Sales Director, "but this one really ticked all the boxes, providing both stock and showroom facilities in a location that could not be better placed to increase our service radius nationwide."
"We will work in exactly the same way as at our Nelson showroom and manufacturing base, show-casing full-size wrought iron gates, with working examples of the gate automation and access control products on offer, as well as being open to the trade for wrought-iron components". He continued, "training on gate automation equipment & all of the safety aspects involved will also be an important service offered from here."
With over £2 million of stock, North Valley Forge provides a 24-hour turnaround on almost over 4000 catalogue items.
Family owned, North Valley Forge developed the five-acre North Valley Business Park in Nelson eight years ago and has a 25,000 sq ft manufacturing , distribution and training facility that enables it to service both retail and trade customers.
This includes one of Europe's largest electric gate showrooms. The largest UK distributor of the Liftmaster brand, they also offer major European gate automation brands such as BFT, Hy-Dom, Beninca and FAAC, as well as access control systems from Farfisa, Videx, Comelit and Daitem.
"We have expanded beyond expectation and this has obviously provided the springboard to go to another level," said Darren Weatherill. "There is no intention of slowing down, far from it."
"We will be increasing our gates manufacturing capacity to ensure we can continue to produce everything required within acceptable timescales," said Richard Ratcliffe, technical director, "it may be an uncertain economic climate, but we really a company that is going from strength to strength and continually looking to expand."
