LDG Contracts completes move to 60,000 sq ft manufacturing facility - LDG Contracts

Lancashire Double Glazing, one of the North West’s largest window system design, fabrication and installation companies, and part of The LDG Group, has just announced the completion of the company’s move to a new 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the city of Preston.

The relocation project, which was years in planning and the demolition on a grand scale included, ovens ripped out, tonnes of cabling removed and walls taken out to get new equipment into the new Lancashire Double Glazing (LDG) site base which was the former Ashworth's Pies factory, on Havelock Street, Plungington close to the centre of Preston. The budget for the relocation ran into hundreds of thousands of pounds.

In addition to the relocation of existing equipment, a further investment of over £390,000 was made in two new high-tech pieces of equipment installed in the new manufacturing Aluminium line along with further significant investments in a new computer system, software and a brand new website.

The former Ashworth’s building is now a state of the art 60,000 sq ft factory complete with four lines manufacturing UPVC and Aluminium window frames, doors, curtain walling, including Auto Entry systems , as well as the company's offices to service the company’s expanding consumer and trade customer base.

Spokesman Albert Orr said the firm had now successfully completed the move from Lund Street, in Preston city centre and all manufacturing processes, managerial and office administration disciplines had been successfully relocated to Havelock Street.

He said: "We have been based across four sites with 2 manufacturing plants in Preston as well as offices in Wigan and Blackpool, and this gives us the chance to bring head office and all our manufacturing, under one roof. The company has been in the industry for more than 20 years and we are always looking to expand and move forward. We hope that this move will help us to provide the ultimate service for the customer, up-to-date and improved products, as well as facilities to give a better turnaround on manufacturing Aluminium and UPVC products."

The LGD Group was established in 1994 following the Purchase of Raymond Wood Thermalight Windows which successfully merged the two companies which has successfully traded in aluminum windows and doors since 1978 and being able to offer both the retail and commercial customers a wider range of products. The company, which employs 200 people in Preston, snapped up the building after Ashworth's went into administration last summer and will be renting out its Lund Street base to smart storage.

Its UPVC manufacturing, which operates under the Lancashire Double Glazing Raymond Wood Ltd name and aluminium manufacturing operations, is now trading as LDG Contracts the commercial arm of the group. The company moved the manufacturing of its commercial aluminium products into the new facility in September 2006.

Lancashire Double Glazing also acquired the Wigan-based Majestic Conservatories and Windows Company, which brought its manufacturing operations to Preston.
