Richard Burbidge, the manufacturer and supplier of stair parts, decking accessories and decorative mouldings, has relocated its head office to Chirk, North Wales, joining the company’s existing onsite manufacturing and distribution facility.

As part of the ongoing development of the company, Richard Burbidge has relocated its office headquarters to join its existing manufacturing and distribution facility in Chirk.

The Chirk site forms part of the extensive business history of Richard Burbidge, since it was initially acquired in 1986.

The move will improve both the service and quality of products by having all staff in one location, unifying working relationships between all departments, from marketing to distribution, as well as improving efficiency, customer service and delivery.

Established in 1867, Richard Burbidge creates concepts using various materials to transform homes, gardens and commercial spaces, with products stocked nationwide in Homebase, Jewson, Screwfix, Travis Perkins and B&Q, as well as thousands of independent stockists.

Tony Miles, CEO of Richard Burbidge, commented: “The consolidation of all offices to Chirk is a big move and demonstrates just how serious we are about British manufacturing and sustainability.

“We are a family business and above all, excellent quality and customer service are our priority. The move is already proving successful, with a unified workforce, improved communication and efficiency.

“2020 is a big year for the company with increased marketing and production. Richard Burbidge is proving itself as a leading manufacturer of stair parts, decking accessories and decorative mouldings and this year will see further products being stocked in B&Q stores nationwide.”
