Reopening in Scotland

Senior Architectural Systems has reopened its distribution centre in Livingston as the construction industry in Scotland makes a cautious return.

The temporary closure of Senior’s Livingston branch as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak led to all customer orders for its aluminium doors, windows and curtain walling systems being handled through its headquarters in Denaby, South Yorkshire.

Following the government announcement that non-essential construction activity in Scotland can now resume, Senior has put a number of safety precautions in place so that its dedicated facility in West Lothian can reopen its doors.

Senior’s Livingston branch is currently operating with a reduced work force; the company has resumed its delivery service; and customers can collect their orders directly from the branch.

The Livingston team and its customers will continue to be supported by Senior’s manufacturing facility in South Yorkshire, which has been operational throughout the lockdown period to provide aluminium fenestration products for a number of healthcare and education projects.

Senior’s Livingston branch manager Louise Ritchie said: “There will no doubt be more challenges to navigate over the coming months but we are committed to finding a solution that is both safe and effective and to help play our part in helping to get the construction industry in Scotland back to work.”

Senior is also able to offer additional support to its fabricator network via Fab Tools, an online resource, and through its team of technical sales managers. Architects and main contractors can also access technical information by contacting Senior’s architectural advisors who are fully contactable.
