The company, which supplies EPDM materials for flat roofing, has opened a new centre in Huddersfield.

The depot will primarily work as a training hub that roofing contractors based in the North of England can visit to receive training on Flex R’s specialist products. It is 14,000 sq. ft. and generated jobs for 22 people in the area.

Trading Director Duncan Winter said: “It has been a privilege to welcome so many people – including existing contractors, potential new customers and suppliers, those who specify our products and those who support our business – to join us and celebrate the opening of our second premises.

“This building represents a platform to drive the growth of our business. The new facility will give us a strong foothold in the flat roofing market in the North of England because it will act as a focal point for our team and local roofing contractors. The new training hub is a vital part of our growth plans because we can offer training to roofing contractors across the North of England who would have previously struggled to attend training at our High Wycombe base.

“We have enjoyed marking the opening of our new facility, and now it’s down to business getting it off to a flying start supporting roofing contractors and merchants.”
