Roof truss and engineered timber products supplier Pasquill is replacing its Hartlepool operation with a new design and production centre at Hebburn.

Pasquill managing director Stuart McKill said the Hebburn centre would allow the company to upgrade and extend manufacturing and design capabilities in the north-east while improving accessibility to customers from a wider area.

Products being sold from Hebburn include roof trusses, spandrel panels, posi-joists, glulam, Smartroof, I-joists, open-web joists and LVL.

Recently, Pasquill claimed a timber industry first for its new website which enables architects and builders to upload drawings and obtain product specification advice.
