Working alongside Steelite’s French and Portuguese suppliers, the Novus team carried out the work over a six month period following the demolition of eight terraced houses and a vicarage to free up space for the dish.
Novus completed work on a new transformer to ensure that the new factory has a sufficient supply of electricity, as well as building a slip house to facilitate Steelite’s clay deliveries.
To complete the redevelopment work, a compressor house and gas governor was also installed before the project was finally completed in August, allowing for production to get underway immediately.
A topping out ceremony was staged at the facility to celebrate the final episode of production, with Novus chairman, Stuart Seddon and Steelite chief executive Kevin Oakes, being in attendance.
