Coventry roofing supplier celebrates further expansion

A national rubber roofing supplier is celebrating after moving into its fifth new building since the business was launched in 2010.

Coventry-based Rubber4Roofs Ltd sells coverings and accessories for rubber roofs used on commercial and residential buildings with flat roofs.

The latest move sees the company relocate from its 6,600 sq ft unit on Swallowgate Business Park to a new 12,500 sq ft unit on the same estate.

Rubber4Roofs is currently enjoying year-on-year growth of more than 70% and this latest move is only a 100 yards from its previous home.

After starting out on his own, founder Tom Cullingford now employs 14 staff and has plans to move into supplying independent builder’s merchants across the UK.

Cullingford, said: “We didn’t really plan for growth we’ve achieved and essentially we’ve doubled the size of our unit every time we moved.

“But the speed of our expansion has caused us to be innovative as we’ve developed machinery to minimise space used to cut up rubber, so our turnover per square foot has grown at the same time.

 “A key part of this latest move was staying in this part of Coventry, as being located next to well-known businesses who operate in related markets such as Travis Perkins and Eurocell is really useful.”

The business was assisted in its latest move by commercial property company D&P Holt.
