Steve Wightman, Workshop Manager at PERI Rugby, said:
“When I started here in 1998, it was a basic site, with a storage yard, warehousing and office space for our headquarters. The fabrication workshop was a blank canvas and at the start I was on my own putting RUNDFLEX panels together. But then we started recruiting carpenters, some of whom are still with us. Now, Rugby is home to our main fabrication facility in the UK.
“We’ve created bespoke formwork for fascinating projects such as the V&A museum in Dundee and if you’ve seen the museum, you’ll understand the need for bespoke shuttering. The structure is truly unique, having no two walls the same. A large part of the work was undertaken in Rugby by a team of talented engineers and carpenters, which peaked at 26 in the three-years of its construction.”
