Investment in energy efficient plant and machinery, environmentally friendly LED lighting and an ambitious employee skills development scheme are just part of M&M Timber’s plans to consolidate its position in the specialist timber products sector.
Focusing on environmental factors, a new manufacturing plant is to include an advanced biomass processing facility and new timber chipping machinery for a proposed heat initiative scheme to fuel the company’s timber drying kilns.
The company also has also hinted it may be installing a third biomass operated kiln early next year.
A new employee skills development programme has just been announced that is designed to promote active job progression with the emphasis on building and developing a highly skilled and settled workforce.
A newly built on-site staff training centre includes a dedicated facility for employee induction programmes.
Nigel Poyner, M&M Timber’s Managing Director told The Landscaper, “The new developments are the most significant in our company’s 30 year history and will equip the company with a more dynamic stance and stronger market presence in the years ahead. The emphasis will be on further investment in technology and manufacturing processes and, perhaps more importantly, in building a loyal workforce with the skills and aptitude to take us forward.”
