Stagecraft back in business
Leading shopfitting company, Stagecraft is back in business following a fire that gutted its factory.
The business has re-located to a factory in nearby Newtown, Mid-Wales, where new machinery has been delivered to replace the destroyed equipment. The company is currently talking to customers in a bid to fulfil orders as quickly as possible but anticipate there is likely to be delays of a week to ten days on some orders.
Managing director, Tom Davis confirmed that, while the fire which started in the early morning destroyed the entire factory and office, important elements of the business were not affected.
“While we lost some work-in-progress and machinery, we were able to save design drawings, orders, and the computer equipment which holds our customer databases,” Tom said.
Production at the factory was just slowing down after fulfilling major orders for the annual rush for Easter before tooling-up to meet the growing order book for Christmas display items.
“Fortunately our significant timber supplies are stored well away from the factory, so once our new equipment was installed, we were able to get up and running fairly quickly thanks to the efforts of our staff and the support of our clients.”
