VR Access Solutions, a leading UK-based manufacturer, supplier and designer of access and scaffolding products and services, has unveiled plans to begin manufacturing its Turnlok system at a new facility in North West England as part of a three-year plan to centre all its manufacturing in the UK.

Julian Sanders, VR’s technical director, said: “This move is part of our commitment to deliver the highest standard of customer service and meet growing demand for our range of products and services.

“The new investment from VR will create 20 new jobs initially and see manufacturing certified to BS EN 1090-1:2009; A1:2011 EXC3; and ISO 9001:2015.”

The new facility is expected to start shipping products during the spring.
