Further expansion for roofing production

Modplan has expanded its production facility with the installation of a new 12,000ft2 mezzanine floor at its Newport, Gwent, headquarters.

The additional production space will be used for the manufacture of its Leka roofing products and will allow Modplan to improve its manufacturing efficiencies.

This latest expansion takes Modplan’s total manufacturing space to 137,000ft2.

Neil Gater, Modplan’s communications manager, said: “We were the first fabricator to offer the Leka roofing systems and we have seen continued growth year-on-year for the product. As such, we felt we needed a dedicated Leka fabrication factory to ensure we could further improve efficiencies and turnaround times to our customers.”
