Who are Britcover?
Northern Polytunnels was purchased by the Wolfenden family 30 years ago to run alongside their already established horticultural sundries business, LBS Horticulture Ltd. In 2001 Northern Polytunnels became a limited company in its own right (NP Structures Ltd.), but continued to trade under the established Northern Polytunnels brand as part of the LBS group. In 2012 the company completely demerged from LBS Horticulture Ltd. with sole ownership of NP Structures Ltd. passing to Ian Wolfenden. LBS Horticulture Ltd. was retained by Ian’s older siblings and thus ended a 25-year business relationship.
Today NP Structures Ltd. is a thriving business servicing both the domestic and commercial horticultural markets, but also seeing growth in the agricultural, automotive and construction industries. Some of this growth has been generated by our newly created Britcover division which specialises in heavy-duty, PVC-coated fabric structures.
Our policy of reinvestment into our manufacturing equipment has delivered the most up to date facility in our industry. We operate standard machinery alongside the specialist machinery we have developed ourselves. These include CNC tube benders, ABB robotic welding cells, laser and plasma CNC cutting, fully automatic flow drilling machinery, PVC welding equipment, and hot melt & hot air technologies. This enables us to manufacture parts efficiently and accurately time after time. Our raw materials are both certified and certificated so that we can guarantee consistent quality.
In-house Structural Design Engineers
We use the latest state-of-the-art 3D computer modelling software for drawing-up our designs. Our in-house structural engineers and state-of-the-art analysis software enables our design team to analyse the stresses and strains of various wind speeds and snow loadings, giving an accurate representation of what happens in real life. Ultimate confidence in our design, materials and manufacturing processes enables us to give our customers peace of mind when choosing one of our structures.
We pride ourselves on good customer service, and with almost 50 years experience fabricating structures, our staff can ensure you get the best service and highest quality product from one of the UK’s leading manufacturers.
