JACKSON’S Timber Ltd has opened a new site at Calderbridge – and created seven new jobs.
By Mark White
This is the firm’s fourth – and largest – yard in Cumbria and was formally opened by Copeland MP Jamie Reed.
Director Daniel Mossop said: “The company looks at these new premises as a positive going forward. We hope that the vast new showroom will help cater to our customers’ needs.
“The new yard development was sympathetic to the local area while delivering maximum sustainability.”
The company achieved this by installing solar panels for electricity, biomass boilers and materials with enhanced insulation values to retain energy generated.
Daniel added: “Jackson’s is very proud of its relationship with local tradesmen, and the quality of this build reflects the skills and craftsmanship available here in Cumbria.”
Shelly Gambles, business support manager at Britain’s Energy Coast (BEC), said: “This project is a perfect demonstration of the benefits of the BEC Investing in Business programme that draws on funding from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Regional Growth Fund.
“Jackson’s received £80,000 towards the facilities, complementing the on-going business support services that BEC has provided to help Jackson’s Timber grow.”
