Welshpool firm strikes Olympic Gold

Created on 05/11/2010 @ 10:36


A local company will be helping the world’s best athletes reach the top quite literally after securing a lucrative contract with the London 2012 Olympics.
Pear Stairs, a department of local Builders Merchant Boys & Boden, won the contract this week to supply staircases to the event’s Olympic Village currently under construction in East London.
And a delighted Company Manager, Clive McNamee, said: “My Technical Manager, Richard Evans, and I spent two days at the London site a couple of weeks ago doing the survey. We knew then that the order was forthcoming but wanted to wait until we had the official go-ahead before going public.”
The Athletes Village is one of the most significant new urban developments in the UK and its’ rapid development over the next two years will receive worldwide attention.
In the short term, the Athletes Village (left) will provide thousands of beds for athletes and officials during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. After the games, it will transform into a lively residential community featuring an Education Academy, community and healthcare facilities, and swathes of parks and open spaces all located within a short train journey to central London. It also sits adjacent to the future facilities of the Olympic Park and a major new retail development.
Pear Stairs is one of the largest manufacturers of timber and metal staircases in the UK, delivering nationwide on a daily basis and employing 45 people.
Clive added: “We manufacture and deliver over 600 staircases a month from our Welshpool factory and also send out thousands of stair parts via our web site to the trade and DIY enthusiasts.”
