New Premises and Manufacturing Platform


We are pleased to announce that we have relocated our combined business of Francis W. Birkett and Walter Frank.


Following extensive investigation and planning we have concluded the sale of our Hightown Road, Cleckheaton site to Stonebridge Homes (part of the Henry Boot PLC) on July 31st 2017. Our strategic acquisition of the J Roberts Bronze Components business provides a manufacturing footprint which is perfect to combine the 3 businesses with one joint manufacturing platform. The layout of the site is more readily suited to the lean principles which we are continuously introducing to the business and the new site will enable us to further invest in infrastructure and machinery for the future. The new site on St Peg Lane, Cleckheaton is less than 5 minutes’ drive from the previous site.
