In 2009, Kelkay spent £1m on a new facility for the manufacture of paving stones. It is now nearing full production and will be at full capacity by year end. The company spent a further £250,000 on packaging and palletising machinery for its pre-packed decorative aggregates. This will result in cleaner and tidier pallets at point of purchase.
Further investment has been made improving site infrastructure, including a new 3,000sq m warehouse to store its resin-stone ranges - Easy Fountain (self-contained water features), Gargoyles and Creatures.
Managing director Antony Harker said: "With this additional capacity, Kelkay, from the one site, can offer its customers the ability to place minimum quantity orders over four product categories. The increased investment will allow us to expand our ranges further, extending our product offering and enhancing our customer service."
