Pacific Building confirms new workshop investment

PACIFIC Building has announced a six-figure investment in a new manufactured joinery workshop at the company’s Hillington HQ.

The move will provide six new employment opportunities, with the new facility set to feature brand new machinery, tooling and other equipment. Pacific added that it will cover an area three times the size of the facility the business currently uses.

Bespoke pieces will be manufactured to meet increasing demand from the hospitality, retail and travel sectors. This includes fixtures, fittings and other items associated with café furniture, waiting stations, bar tops, shelving, panelling, cabinetry, wall coverings, screens, storage, reception desks, covings and mouldings.

Current projects tipped to benefit from the new workshop include the Beresford Lounge in Glasgow, the Marine Hotel and the Renaissance Club in North Berwick and the Belvidere Bowling Club in Glasgow’s east end.

The sustainable facility will be heated by briquettes created from its waste output.

MD Gerard McMahon said, “This significant investment in our workshop will allow us to provide a minimum of six additional jobs, increase capacity and deliver bespoke joinery solutions for our growing client base. As an employee-owned business, investing in our people and services is central to our culture and values.

“The workshop allows Pacific Building to provide added value to our clients via a single point of contact, through continuity from design to installation and via innovation throughout the process.”

Pacific have previously had to source manufactured joinery items from external suppliers, which limited the firm’s control over quality. The business said that developing the company’s own joinery workshop will allow it to produce bespoke items in-house and provide a ‘guarantee’ over the standard of finish.

Clients and designers can visit the workshop throughout the process to watch their products come together and inspect the quality.
