SIP Build UK completed its multimillion-pound manufacturing plant at Normanton Industrial Estate as part of an ongoing investment programme by the company 12 months ago.
The business manufactures and constructs buildings made from Structural Insulated Panels and ‘unprecedented demand’ has seen production increase by 100 per cent.
Managing director of SIP Build UK, Chris Duckworth said: “Demand particularly in the past six months for quality, airtight and thermally efficient high-quality panels has been unprecedented.
“Quality is a key area for us as the construction industry is still faced with a skills shortage, the ability to be able to build off-site to such a high-quality specification is of great benefit to the building industry as a whole.
“The BOPAS accreditation is a major achievement for us and has paved the way for job creation, comprehensive training and wider investment.
He added: “We’ve seen growing demand from specialist property projects, the education sector and social housing providers. This is in-line with the ever-increasing demand for off-site manufactured systems which has completely transformed the construction landscape in the past few years.
“Over the last six months, we’ve doubled our production of SIPs by securing some major new contracts, and this shows no signs of a let-up. Our commitment to quality and efficiency underpins our ambitions for long-term growth.
“Hentons have been integral in our expansion programme, providing comprehensive financial advice and ensuring a critical investment was conducted in a manner to enable continued future growth.”
Financial advice for the investment and expansion is provided by leading West Yorkshire chartered accountants, Hentons.
Simon Gray, a partner at Hentons, said: “SIP Build UK is a very impressive, forward-thinking business which has adapted well to the way the construction industry has evolved.
“Expertise in quality and safety in all its installations is helping to ensure a very positive future for the firm.”
