Seven decades on and Clawthorpe company is still building for the future
A FAMILY building company is celebrating almost seven decades of work in South Lakeland and north Lancashire by developing a ‘regeneration hub’ to help other businesses flourish.
Ed Duckett – the third generation of his family involved in the business – says work is about to start on a range of business units next to the Duckett Building Services’ head office at Clawthorpe Hall Business Centre, where the firm manages 18 self-contained units as well as conference and meeting facilities.
Mr Duckett said: “We have attracted support from South Lakeland District Council,and investment from Defra and the Rural Growth Network for eight new flexible office units.
“They will include spaces for meetings, events, training and networking, as well as a hub to support SMEs and help them to expand.”
The firm began life as E and E Duckett after being established in 1946 by brothers Ernest and Edward Duckett.
