Foras Growth Development
Posted 16/01/2018 : By: Alice Goodrich
In March 2017, Foras Ltd. were approved for funding by the West Norfolk LAG to develop a new manufacturing and storage area for their business, including new racking and an automated stock control management system. This allowed the applicant to bring more of their manufacturing in-house and improved the management of their stock. By improving warehousing and stock control, the business is able to work much more efficiently and by bringing manufacturing in-house, they have been able to significantly lower costs and reduce the lead time for bespoke products.
Norfolk farmer John Wootton and his partner, Claire Brutnall, gave up farming to form an exciting new venture in natural stone. Foras has since become an award-winning business that presents customers with an exclusive range of natural stone garden accessories, flooring and tiles to dress country homes, city terraces and courtyards.
