New James Jones new I-Joist assembly line building completed

Structural work is now complete on the new 3,000m2 I-Joist assembly line building at James Jones & Sons Ltd in Forres.

The new line will see JJI-Joist production capability more than double from the 7.5 Million lineal metres per year the site currently produces to a potential 20 Million lineal metres a year. Globe Machine are supplying the new I-Joist line and components will arrive on site in the coming weeks.

Once commissioned, the new line should alleviate any concerns the UK construction industry might have over I-Joist supply due to on-going Brexit negotiations, with the world’s most advanced assembly line being on UK soil.
