“In December 1999 Portmeirion Potteries Limited, acquired the manufacturing site of Biltons Tableware, including all the plant, machinery fixtures and fittings. The site was a complete tableware manufacturing unit, with all the components of a self contained factory, including clay preparation, forming, isostatic presses, decorating, dryers, kilns, and all the accessories.
Other than a small section of the factory that we have been using ourselves for development trials, it was decided to sell off the bulk of the factory, plant and machinery within the Biltons factory. We required a company with the experience and expertise to hand1e this project for us. After interviewing severn1 companies with factory clearance experience, a clearance agreement was made with Pebblevale Ltd.
Although we have not had to put any time scale on the clearance, there were several key items of machinery in the building, which would have been very expensive to remove and possibly scrap, if a buyer was not found. Pebblevale Limited have not only sold these and many other items on a Worldwide basis, but have handled the complete sales, removal and financial aspect, both effectively and professionally, allowing us to continue with our key business of manufacturing quality ceramic products. They have obtained for us a substantial cash return for the items sold, and we are now in a position where all the key items have been sold and removed from site.
Pebblevale Limited have been professional in their association with Portmeirion Potteries Limited, and we would recommend them to others for similar work.
