Plaster plant.

British Gypsum's Barrow-upon-Soar plaster production plant, which came into operation in 1992, is the largest and most technologically advanced of its kind in the world.

To meet ongoing growth in demand for Thistle plasters, a major expansion of the plant was completed in September 2002, increasing capacity by around 30%.

Occupying a 57 acre site and including a new gypsum mine, the environmentally friendly plant producing Thistle plasters demonstrates British Gypsum's commitment to unmatched quality and service.
