The latest chapter in the Orthotix success story will see the business move into it’s third premise in under a decade. Originally set up in the Merthyr Tydfil Industrial park, the business soon outgrew its surroundings before moving to its existing facility within the Dacey Ltd building in Canton, Cardiff.
The continued expansion has left Orthotix bursting at the seams of its current home and with demand from new markets emerging, future growth has become inhibited. With this in mind, the Company Directors enquired about purchasing the adjoining property. This had remained derelict for a number of years and after a protracted period of negotiations with the owners, a deal was successfully negotiated.
In Early 2018, work began on the renovation of the new Orthotix 25,000 SqFt premise, which requires a complete overhaul, including roofing, plumbing, electrics and asbestos removal. The new building when finished will create increased warehousing, modern offices, design suites and a product showroom complete with fitting clinics.
Executive Director, Paul Cooper said;
“This move is much needed for our business as it will enable us to significantly upscale our operations to meet existing and future demand for our products across our trade, retail and export platforms. The project will also give us the opportunity to enhance our corporate branding, with a modern facility befitting of the leading sports and orthopaedic bracing distributor in the country”
Renovation works are set to be complete by the summer of 2018 and the expansion of Orthotix is anticipated to create a number of employment opportunities.
