The UK's first flat pack tractor company to rebuild burnt factory
Siromer Tractors in Pilling, lost their factory after a faulty radiator fire in February 2017
Plans have been approved by Wyre Council to rebuild the factory based at Taylors Lane Industrial Estate.
The new building will include a new two storey factory and accommodate a showroom for customer use and a sales office to the ground floor. There will also be staff facilities on the first floor level with the remaining space of the building being used as a workshop and storage space for parts
The fire burnt down the entire main factory unit which contained all the offices, production facilities and a unique collection of 25 years of special tractor stock.
The cause of the fire was thought to be a faulty radiator unit.
The company has existed as a local family business in Pilling since 1999. The company was the first to introduce flat pack tractors to the UK and have since sold over 4000 compact tractors.
Parts are imported from all over the world which are then assembled and made into tractors unique to the company’s own designs.
Since the fire Siromer has been operating from its two other units on the Taylors Lane site and from the directors own home in order to keep the business going and retain their existing staff.
