Modplan extends its manufacturing capacity

Trade fabricator Modplan has just completed a new manufacturing extension at its headquarters in Newport, Gwent. The new extension further boosts Modplan’s manufacturing capacity across its multi-site operation and will accommodate the company’s doorline fabrication.

Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s Managing Director, said: “We firmly believe in continuous investment in our business. This new doorline extension will open up new opportunities and provide additional capacity to support our long-term growth efforts.”

The new extension will allow Modplan to maintain its competitive turnaround times even as volumes increase. The extension has been future-proofed too, because new fabrication stations can be added as volumes grow further.

As you would expect from a Modplan facility, the new manufacturing centre is equipped with state-of-the-art door fabrication machinery, including a dedicated automated supercut machine for precision accuracy. Heidi commented: “Investing in machine technology helps us deliver the quality we want as well as maintain competitive turnaround times, even as we grow.”

As Heidi says, continuous investment is a priority for Modplan. The new door extension follows hot on the heels of investment in several new trucks for its transport fleet as well as increased capacity to support the growth in demand for its PVC-U Flush Sash windows. It has also opened a Training Academy, which provides a dedicated space to train personnel across its business from NVQ level through to management. As well as supporting its own staff, the Training Academy is also available to Modplan’s customers, offering both office-based skills development and hands-on fabrication training.

Modplan manufactures a wide range of window, door and conservatory products for it growing customer base. It also has a partnership approach that delivers marketing, technical and training support that adds value to an installer’s business. Add in a clear commitment to continuous investment to ensure it is equipped to continue to deliver for its customers both now and into the future and it becomes clear why the company is about to celebrate 50 years in business.
