New Aerial Photos of Jones & Brooks Facility

We have recently had some aerial photographs of our permises in Rochdale taken which show the full scale of our operation.  Most noticeable of all is our recent inclusion of 204 solar panels which generate up to 38894 Kwh of electricity per annum.  The weather on the day these pitcures were taken was perfect.  The investment emphasises the conscientious approach Jones & Brooks takes towards the environment.
