FP McCann’s Precast Concrete Fencing Division goes from Strength to Strength

Since its formation some 9 years ago, FP McCann’s fencing division has firmly established itself as a leading UK supplier of precast concrete posts, panels and gravel boards. Significant capital investment and key strategic commercial recruitment is set to take the business to the next level. 

Operating out of its Cadeby manufacturing facility near Nuneaton, Warwickshire, the company is ramping up production this year by an additional 30% with a £2.5 million investment in two new Coote precast concrete production lines; the first of which will be operational from this month. In addition to increased productivity levels, the other major benefits of the new lines will be enhanced quality of the finished products and a reduction in the requirement for on-site manual handling. To accommodate the increase in production capacity at Cadeby, FP McCann is also increasing its on-site stocking capabilities with the acquisition of an additional 22 acres for hard standing.

“Having an extensive product range in stock will enable us to smooth out the natural annual ‘peak and trough’ demands particular to the UK fencing products market”, comments Katie McGorty (pictured right), FP McCann’s National Fencing Sales Manager. “Providing quality products straight from stock at a competitive price is key to the future growth of our fencing business”, Katie adds. 

FP McCann is also strengthening its commercial presence following the recruitment of two key people: Lisa Mackett, formerly of Supreme Concrete, has now joined the FP McCann fencing team with sales management responsibilities in the South, South-East and London areas; and Jack Wheldon, who is coming in from the Forterra Building Products group to take up the position of Area Sales Manager in the South-West region. “With Lisa’s extensive 20 years knowledge and experience into the precast fencing industry, we are looking forward to expanding our strategic coverage with stockists and contractors alike. Jack’s background at Forterra dealing with the building sector also makes him an extremely valuable addition to our team, Katie says.

The Cadeby operational and commercial teams are well positioned not only geographically, but with a bank of skills and knowledge gained from years of experience and FP McCann's willingness to invest in its business divisions, it will ensure the company is at the forefront of the precast concrete fencing sector in years to come
