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.

The Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) and Wakefield Council Leader, Cllr Peter Box, said: “I’m delighted BPC Building Products are investing in Wakefield and creating new jobs. 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.

The investment follows on from significant growth at BPC Building Products, with 170 per cent increase in turnover over the last 5 years. Once complete, the investment project will enable the company to further increase its market share in both the UK and European construction markets.

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. The funding will allow us to support our ongoing growth as we look to strengthen our presence in existing markets and push ahead into new areas.

BPC Building Products, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary next year, holds over one-million components in stock at its Wakefield warehouse, backed up by outstanding technical expertise. The company offers a wide range of timber-to-timber and timber-to-masonry connectors, through to fence post anchors and other essential trade and DIY fixings.

The company’s advanced, high-speed production lines ensure optimum efficiency and consistent high levels of quality. The majority of BPC’s products are manufactured in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, and have the back up of an ISO 9001 approved quality control system.

The LEP provides a range of support to growing businesses including grants of up to £250,000, help to recruit apprentices, advice and up to 50 per cent funding to train their workforce and assistance to improve their use of technology.
