April 2004, Purple Mustard started trading.
Our new presses arrive. This is the first major investment for the company to improve production.
Construction work starts on the new unit situated next to the first unit, with the ground being cleared and excavated in preparation for the foundations.
With the foundations completed it's time to start erecting the framework for the new unit.
With the main structure of the new unit completed, the cladding is installed.
At last, the new unit has been completed, ready to start producing, all that's needed now is equipment.
With one side of the site developed, it's time to start developing the rest of the site. First the ground is prepared and the banks of the site reinforced.
The site continues to develop, with the perimeter nearing completion. With the foundations laid, the structure for three new units begins to emerge.
The second unit structure nears completion, leaving only the third unit structure.
With all three units erected and clad, the site yard is the next step.
All three units have been completed, as well as the yard.
With all three units, the site yard and a few cosmetic features completed the site is finally ready.
