Leading trade VEKA fabricator Modplan has just acquired a further 45,000 square feet of manufacturing space opposite its headquarters in Abercarn, Gwent. The additional space will allow Modplan to further improve its manufacturing efficiencies and provide additional space for its rapidly growing production requirements.
The new premises increase Modplan’s production capacity by nearly 60% and takes total manufacturing space to over 120,000 square feet. This substantial increase is testament to Modplan’s continuing success. Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s Managing Director, says, “We’ve seen our business increasing steadily for some time. Our partnership approach and commitment to quality in all areas of the business means we can provide the support that people need. The introduction of compulsory CE marking has seen increasing numbers of customers coming to us too. Our European business means our products have been CE marked as standard for some time and that experience is vital for many people.”
The new property, which is known locally as the Old Tin Works, will manufacture all of Modplan’s roofs, plus hold a brand new, state-of-the-art spray plant and glazing facility. The factory sits on a 2.5 acre site which gives Modplan valuable extra space to increase logistical efficiencies too because loading wagons and crates for export will become considerably easier and quicker.
Heidi says, “It is very important to us that our customer experience is excellent. This new acquisition will allow us to continue offering an outstanding level of service as well as give us room to expand as our business continues to grow.”
Expansion on this scale in this economic climate is noteworthy, but Modplan’s level of quality makes them a reassuring partner for any installer, something that is reflected in their growing business.
