Prestressed concrete lintel manufacturer Naylor Concrete Products has announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Barugh Green, Barnsley.

Naylor has manufactured lintels since 1965, and has developed its business by concentrating on high performance lintels - the Naylor Hi-Spec, Fire-Spec (fire resistant) and Fair Faced ranges - and on its Specials service.

For the last 35 years, the company has operated from a three-acre leasehold site at Ossett, near Wakefield, but space restrictions have prevented operation growth over recent years.

Earlier this year the company acquired a nine-acre freehold site at Barugh Green, some 10 miles from Ossett and two miles from the Naylor Head Office at Cawthorne, with the aim of addressing space restraints.

The relocation that commenced in April 2015 was recently completed, and an opening ceremony will take place on 4 September. The event has a dual purpose in that the company will also celebrate 50 years since its formation.

Helen MacIntosh, managing director of Naylor Concrete Products, said: “We have some excellent new product plans which Ossett’s limited space prevented us from progressing.

“The new site gives us considerably more manufacturing and storage space; this will allow Naylor Concrete Products to fulfil its growth potential.”
