Joseph Ash Chesterfield: improvements update

Ambitious improvement works almost complete!

In December 2014 we announced some exciting new plans and improvements for the Joseph Ash Chesterfield plant. The works included adding another large hardstanding bay to the plant – an area that can house up to 100 trailers – as well as an area where customers can trial erect their fabrications before taking them off-site and delivering them to the end user.

The plans also included the addition of an extra crane gantry area, providing customers with the ability to load their own containers or carry out pre-site assembly or other processes. The gantry area also provides us with the ability to load several customers’ vehicles or containers at a time.

As well as the above developments, we also planned the following: 

  • Extension of the fork-lift fleet
  • Container loading facilities
  • MPI crack detection (by prior arrangement)
  • Local overnight facilities and changing facilities for truck drivers
  • Factory space and offices (up to 1200m2 currently available) suitable for fabrication or assembly
  • Offices and telecoms for customer use.

These were ambitious plans, but 10 months on and we are very pleased to report that we’re almost finished with our improvements!

Here are some photos to prove it!
