Glengarnock based J&D Pierce (Contracts) Ltd announced the acquisition of the former Konecranes plant in East Kilbridei n South Lanarkshire in Scotland in UK. The company has purchased the entire facility consisting of the 300,000 square foot manufacturing plant along with the 14 Acres of yard space. The facility will become the new headquarters of our Strubeam business which specialises in the manufacture of bridges, plate girders, heavy plated fabrication and welded truss work. It was reported in August 2020 that Konecranes plant in East Kilbride workers were facing redundancy, as the company was struggling to turn a profit. At the time, 80 people lost their jobs at the East Kilbride site, specialising in engineered-to-order and configured to order cranes. The plant will be operational by April.
J&D Pierce has also agreed a long term sub contract deal with Konecranes to continue the manufacture and assembly of Konecrane Demag overhead cranes in the East Kilbride facility. Cranes have been manufactured in this plant for over 60 years and J&D Pierce would continue to manufacture as a specialist supply partner to Konecranes.
