New fortress for safety interlocking specialists
02 November 2007
Midlands construction group Weaver PLC has started work on a new £3 million state-of-the-art headquarters for safety interlocking specialists, Fortress Interlocks of Wolverhampton.
Due for completion in March 2008, the 2,800m² project at Monmore Grange Estate includes a contemporary two-storey office building, plus a steel-frame production and warehouse facility designed to enhance work practices and provide an improved working environment for the 56 people currently employed.
Fortress Interlocks designs and manufactures specialist safety interlocking equipment for potentially hazardous workplaces, and is renowned for its culture of innovation. It was recently honoured in the Queen's Awards for Enterprise for its range of modular interlocks which can be adapted to changing circumstances.
Established over 40 years ago, the company has been based on Birmingham New Road since 1985 and, according to managing director Mike Golding, the relocation will pave the way for future expansion.
Mr Golding said, “The move to our new headquarters is one of the major milestones in the transformation of the Fortress business from a small Black Country engineering company to a global supplier of industrial interlocking products.”
