Following the almost £2.25 million investment in the past 12 months, Russell Roof Tiles (RRT) has invested a further £250K in equipment.
The firm has recently taken delivery of two new heavy-duty vehicles to help improve efficiencies at both its Burton and Lochmaben sites. The two Doosan DL280 wheel loaders, supplied by Filtermech and James Gordon Ltd for the firm’s Burton and Lochmaben sites, feature the latest innovations as well as ensuring cab comfort for operators.
James Gordon was established in 1865 and are the premier distributors of agricultural and construction equipment in Southwest Scotland, while Filtermech is the UK’s leading supplier of the global range of Doosan equipment.
This is another investment by the firm to ensure it is utilising its team and equipment to the maximum, to improve efficiencies and output to keep up with ongoing demand for its roof tiles.
Bruce Laidlaw, operations director, said: “It’s important that we continue to make new investments to boost productivity and support our team. Using new machinery also helps strengthen our aim to reduce our carbon footprint and become carbon neutral by 2040. We’re working with independent body Planet Mark who are verifying and measuring carbon data to reduce emissions across our whole business.”
“This is an important investment at Russell Roof Tiles to further enhance quality across the business, utilising the latest innovations in manufacturing.”
