Yard of Manningham Concrete's latest branch.

Manningham opens branch No.4

Published:  21 May, 2012

WEST YORKSHIRE: Manningham Concrete has opened another branch in Bradford at Allerton Road. It joins the merchant's other three sites in the city.

"We opened another branch due to increased demand for fencing," said managing director Alan Tomlinson. 

The site in Allerton was previously used for the production of machined timber, but is now open to the public and is dedicated to fencing and decking products. The majority of the merchant's fencing timber is sourced from UK timber mills and its bespoke range of fence panels come from Europe.  

"After consultation with installers of fencing decks it became apparent that they do not like working with 'wet timber' that has been stored in the open, so we have also invested in high quality German cantilever racking with roofs to keep our stock dry," Mr Tomlinson explained.

"In addition to the fencing timber, we also carry a wide range of fencing products, including post holders, gate hardware, nails and screws," he said.
