Roofing and lining membrane specialist, Firestone Building Products, have completed a move to new offices and stockholding facilities incorporating a new Building Products University Training Centre, as part of a major expansion plan based on continued growth over the past five years.

The Cheshire-based company has moved to Premier Park, Winsford Industrial Estate, almost trebling its accommodation to enable the expansion of its office team and enhance its stockholding and training capabilities. The move is designed to help support and create jobs by enabling Firestone’s expansion and enhancing its Building Products University facilities, for architects and other specifiers as well as providing practical and theory training for existing and potential Firestone roofers and lining installers. Firestone will now be able to store more EPDM and TPO membranes on site, along with the ancillary fixings, tapes and adhesives that complement its roofing and lining products.

Comments commercial manager of Firestone, John McMullan: “As EPDM continues to grow in popularity as a flexible and robust solution with an unparalleled service life, our market share of the flat roofing market is growing, across our RubberGard™ EPDM commercial roofing products and RubberCover™ EPDM domestic range. Meanwhile, we’re continuing to achieve market leading sales performance across our UltraPly™ TPO roofing range and PondGard™ and GeoGard™ EPDM lining products, so we are expanding our team and the size of our premises to reflect that success.

“Creating greater stockholding capacity is a critical aspect of this move as it will allow us to reduce lead times and ensure even better product availability, supporting our customers across the procurement and project delivery process.”

Firestone’s UK & Ireland business has operated out of its Winsford HQ since 1998, building on Firestone’s global heritage in rubber technology, which dates back over a century.
