Originating from Belfast's Titanic shipyard, we invested £2.5 million in 2021 to establish one of the UK and Europe's top manufacturing and distribution facilities. Our 130,000 sqft headquarters features advanced CNC laser cutting, robotic welding, and an automated powder coating line, in addition to housing our 4,000 sqft gym.

Main products and services

case study: IRISH RUGBY - IRFU
It was a great privilege for BLK BOX to be awarded the contract to supply the new IRFU’s High-Performance Training Facility in Abbotstown. Working as part of a wider project, €6 million was invested in the new state-of-the-art facility, which continues to play an important part in the development and preparation of elite rugby players on both the Irish Rugby national team and provincial teams.

PROJECT
We worked with the IRFU team to ultimately create an elite training space like no other in the country and to provide a solution that would involve multiple workstations and free up floor space.

The Samson Combo Rack was designed in collaboration with the Irish Rugby team, in which 6 were installed. This versatile rack offers the best of our Samson Full and Half Racks, whilst saving valuable floor space by sharing the weight plate storage. A key consideration for the IRFU team in the design of this environment was the use of multi-density surfaces and importance of performing skills training within a pitch environment. This manifested perfectly within the facility with BLK BOX providing a seamless transition from Apex Flooring, to Mondo Running track, through to the breath-taking half-pitch and dome.

OUTCOME
This was an extremely intricate facility that took almost two years of collaboration to create a multi-use, flexible training environment that could incorporate; Strength & Conditioning, Performance Testing, Rehabilitation and Analysis.

The IRFU High-Performance Training Centre is rightfully considered one of the best High-Performance facilities in Europe. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the finished project become more than you had thought possible.

More recently, in preparation for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France, our team supplied the Irish Rugby team with equipment upgrades so they could train to their fullest potential with the highest quality equipment.
case study: CORE Life
CORE, a luxury wellness destination, entrusted BLK BOX with their second facility in Riyadh, building upon our successful collaboration in Jeddah since 2019. CORE's unwavering commitment to best-in-class holistic wellness perfectly aligns with our mission to create world-class training environments.

PROJECT
Our role in this project was comprehensive. We provided multi-density seamless flooring solutions tailored to CORE's diverse clientele and their wide range of training and class offerings.

Additionally, we expertly designed and installed custom turf and track, creating an iconic outdoor boot camp area that seamlessly bridges indoor and outdoor fitness experiences.

At the heart of CORE's training zones, we meticulously crafted bespoke functional training rigs to suit both indoor and outdoor environments. These rigs were purposefully designed to accommodate the full spectrum of fitness activities, ensuring CORE's ability to offer innovative and adaptable workouts to their members for years to come.

OUTCOME
Our collaboration with CORE in Riyadh serves as a shining example of our unwavering commitment to excellence.

The facility exudes luxury, boasting beautiful aesthetics, harmonious colour schemes, and seamless flooring throughout, fostering a safe and supportive environment for members.

Our functional training rigs, complete with custom branding and precision tailored to CORE's vision, stand as iconic features that promote a dynamic wellness experience.

Furthermore, our end-to-end project support ensured the seamless delivery and installation of all equipment, transported from BLK BOX HQ in Belfast to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
case study: Loughborough University - Powerbase
Home to multiple Olympic, Paralympic & World Champions and recognised as one of the world’s largest elite strength and conditioning environments, Loughborough University Powerbase is designed to maximise athlete’s potential.

Loughborough University is one of the leading universities in the UK, awarded the best University in the UK for sports by The Times and Sunday Times University Guide 2022. Their reputation for sporting excellence, which spans performance, facilities, expertise and working partnerships, confirms their position as the number one university for sport.

PROJECT
The vision for the new Powerbase gym was to ensure they had a complete strength and conditioning environment to complement the existing world-class training environment. Powerbase is an all-inclusive training environment, catering for able-bodied sports and para sports.

In addition, it will be used for athlete rehabilitation, implementing new and sector-leading practices, conducting applied sports research, and educating the next generation of S&C experts.

The partnering selection process for the new Powerbase gym was a thorough one. We were chosen as a partner due to our proven track record of delivering quality and attention to detail as specialists in strength and conditioning equipment.

OUTCOME
In what will become an important development for the sector, our team consulted with a focus group of practitioners working with the para population to create an accessible training space with bespoke solutions for accessibility.

As a collective with Loughborough University, we hope we can bring these solutions to the wider population and revolutionise accessible equipment for all.
