James Jones expansion underway

February 2, 2015  |  Resources

James Jones and Sons Ltd has started work on a major investment programme totalling more than £4 Million at its Timber Systems Division plant at Forres, where it manufactures the company’s ‘JJI-Joist’ engineered wood range.  Since acquiring the old SEIL building adjacent to the James Jones site, the company has undertaken a detailed planning and due diligence exercise prior to the SEIL building being demolished and work on a replacement building starting.

The new facility is going to house a new £2.5m finger-jointing line purchased from Canada, which will allow James Jones to significantly increase its output of JJI-Joists to meet the increasing levels of UK house building.

A new biomass boiler is also being installed which will supply all the heating requirements for the site and which will reduce both energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
