We had the absolute pleasure of working with The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and The Highland Wildlife Park back in September 2017. We palletised three large buildings and dispatched them from our workshop via transport to Kingussie. It was quite a challenge but the buildings arrived there safely. A few days later we sent a 4 man team to follow the buildings and erect them within the grounds.
The first of hopefully many more to come. We can now offer spray painted timber buildings in a fantastic range of colours. Previously we have only been able to offer a hand-painted solution to coloured buildings, which has not only been a very labour intensive operation it has not always given the best finish. We now have a sophisticated spray machine and have decked out one of our farm buildings with spray conveyor to provide an effective way of suspending the panels to paint all sides in several coats of paint.
This building is a Haywood house to hold 25 – 30 hens. It is painted with the colour Mown Hay with Kipsi trimmings.
When we took over the business from Mr Smith back in 2004, the Thicket was a small sketch on a piece of white A4 that was sent out with our brochure pack. We didn’t sell that many and the design very nearly got the chop. Luckily we decided to give it a go in the colour brochure and we haven’t looked back since.
