Dave Moores of MGF Capital Sales division, comments “We have spent many years collaborating with local authorities, utilities organisations and private customers to understand their needs. By manufacturing in the UK we can ensure that our products; meet British quality manufacturing standards, get to our customers quickly via our transport fleet and have a reduced carbon footprint as we do not rely on imports. Our design team is based in-house which allows us to work together with our customers to provide bespoke manufactured solutions. Although British manufacturing can be perceived to be at a premium cost, our rates remain very competitive. The added value service we provide includes complimentary temporary works design to support customers in technically challenging bankside retention projects.”
