Durham-based fairground ride manufacturer, World of Rides, has begun extending its business property to make room for its growth plan.

As part of its three-year plan, the extension is self-funded and is expected to support the company’s growth and exporting strategy.

The company has been based on Drum Industrial Estate since 1990 and, for over 46 years, has been the leading UK manufacturer of children’s leisure rides in the United Kingdom. They supply major shopping centres, retailers, visitor attractions, fun farms, holiday parks, garden centres, family entertainment centres and hospitality centres that include national and single-site operators.
