Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


New Timber Frame Enterprise Opens in South Wales


House building in South Wales is set to become faster and more efficient with the opening of a new timber frame business in Nantyglo, Blaenau Gwent.  Taylor Lane (Wales) Ltd will produce timber frames for new build developments across the region.  The factory and offices were officially opened by former Wales International and British Lion, Brynmor Williams.  The launch event gave thanks to those who had aided and supported the new venture.

Having purchased the premises on Limestone Road, Taylor Lane (Wales) is committed to the area.  With over 30,000 sq. ft of manufacturing facilities, the company will provide timber frame solutions for contractors, developers and self-builders, and offer complementary products and services including design, estimating and project management.  The business has provided immediate employment for local, skilled workers.

As an independent business, Taylor Lane (Wales) represents a new challenge for managing directors, Barrie Lane and Colin Taylor.

“We saw an opportunity to establish a new business and Wales made economic sense, as a location and employment base,” comments Barrie Lane, managing director of Taylor Lane (Wales).  “We have already received incredible support and encouragement from the Council and local business leaders.  We are looking forward to extending the facility and services of Taylor Lane (Wales), as the Welsh Government pledges funds to build 20,000 affordable homes over the next four years.”

Taylor Lane (Wales) welcomed Blaenau Gwent County Borough (BGCBC) Council Cabinet Members for Regeneration and Economic Development, Councillor David Davis and Deputy Leader – Councillor Garth Collier; members of the BGCBC environment and regeneration team, Director Richard Crook and Head of Regeneration Ellie Fry; Councillor Wayne Hodgins; representatives from Thomas Carroll Group and NatWest.  Visitors were greeted with refreshments before a presentation and factory tour.

Councillor David Davies, Executive Member for Regeneration and Economic Development said,

“We are delighted that Taylor Lane have chosen Nantyglo to establish a new timber frame business. This will provide an added boost to the building industry in our area, especially as the Welsh Government is committed to building affordable homes throughout Blaenau Gwent. Additionally, timber frame house construction offers many benefits, they are quicker than traditional buildings to construct and provide many environmental advantages”.
