Solway Precast Products Limited purchased the assets of Solway Precast at the Braehead manufacturing site at Barrhill in south Ayrshire mid August 2012. The sites production had been closed for a few months and was re-established under the partnership of John Barr, Andrew Gillon and David Murdoch who have developed the business to offer high quality products for the Agricultural, Construction and Waste markets. Solway Precast had the reputation of producing high quality precast products and this ethos has been taken forward by the new business. The partnership has a wealth of knowledge of the concrete business, which has benefited Solway Precast and developed old ties with customers lost by the previous business. We pride ourselves with producing high quality precast products designed to meet BSEN standards.
The Braehead production facility in Barrhill has an extensive facility for the production of the precast products. We are set in a 7 acre site which has good access to the A75 to Dumfries and Galloway and South, A77 North bound. We employ 19 employees within the following areas. The Joinery workshop where we manufacture moulds for the units to be cast is fully equipped with woodworking machinery. The pre-stressed beds where we manufacture the silo and stock wall panels, here we can manufacture standard sizes or bespoke lengths. In the slat making shed we have various moulds for the different types of slats we make to your length. All the other sheds are fully equipped with overhead cranes to handle the materials and products during the manufacturing process.
