Nostell Priory Holiday Park on Solid Ground With BPC Fixings

Blue Sky Resorts Ltd, operator of Nostell Priory Holiday Park, has specified BPC Fixings’ Powapost® Bolt Down Post Shoes for a new boundary fence at its venue in Nostell, West Yorkshire.

BPC Fixing’s Powapost® Bolt Down Shoe range is designed for use when posts are required to be installed on an existing hard surface such as a concrete or timber base.

Post shoes from BPC are ideally suited for use during construction of a wide range of landscaping projects such as fencing, gazebos, pergolas and many other garden and landscaping projects.

Nostell Priory Holiday Park used BPC’s PowaPost® post shoes to install a timber post and rail fence alongside a new footpath at the park. The holiday park is located in a forest glade within the grounds of the National Trust’s Nostell Priory Estate.

Specifiers in the procurement team at Blue Sky Resorts chose BPC Fixings’ 90 x 90mm post shoe (PS1/90) because they had used the company’s products previously and knew they were excellent quality.

The items were sourced from Howarth Timber and Building Supplies’ branch in nearby Wakefield, with BPC Fixings delivering direct to the customer in packs of six.

The company also offers a range of complementary PowaPost ® fencing, decking and gardening ranges. These include Drive-In Post Spikes, Flush Fit Bolt Down Shoes, Concrete-In Post Shoes, repair spikes, post extenders and supports.

“Our post shoes take some beating and that is one of the reasons why Nostell Priory Holiday Park specified them,” said Gareth Simister, Managing Director at BPC. “Our range of Bolt Down Post Shoes are also available in 50, 60, 75, 90 and 100mm versions. All sizes are available in standard Twin Bolt and easyGrip design.”

The Twin Bolt arrangement allows the shoe to be securely tightened around timber posts, and also enables easy removal of damaged or rotten posts. Alternatively, the easyGrip version features a wedge type grip which allows quick and easy installation without the need for tightening bolts. Both are designed to be fixed to a solid substrate base such as concrete, timber or paving.

BPC Building Products creates jobs with £500k investment

BPC has announced a £500k investment project to upgrade and expand its Wakefield warehouse and manufacturing facility, creating up to 10 jobs in the process.

The project is part funded by a Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) grant of £80,000, and is due to be completed by 1st February 2017.

BPC Building Products will start work in December 2016 on Flanshaw Way, Wakefield, with the installation of a new high speed production line. This will be followed by upgrading two of the company’s five existing lines in early 2017, increasing output to 130 components per minute on each line, complete with automated barcode application equipment.

It is expected that the investment will create up to 10 jobs within the production and warehousing areas of the company.

The support from Wakefield Growth Manager, Pat Coffey, and the funding the LEP has provided to BPC Building Products will mean the creation of more new jobs in the region, enabling them to further develop and grow their business,” said LEP chair, Roger Marsh OBE. “It is important that Leeds City Region manufacturing grows and our grants can help firms make their investment go further by up to 20 per cent.

I encourage other Wakefield SMEs who have growth plans to get in touch with the LEP to find out if there is support they could be tapping into.

BPC Building Products’ existing merchant customer base across the UK will benefit from the investment through continuation of market leading service, excellent value and highest quality products.

Gareth Simister, Managing Director of BPC Building Products, said; “We have grown as a business by focusing on what we do best – manufacturing high quality builders’ metalwork for customers looking for unbeatable value and service.
