Modplan has completed a new manufacturing extension at its Newport, Gwent, base to accommodate the company’s doorline fabrication.

The new extension will allow the trade fabricator to maintain its turnaround times even as volumes increase. 

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

Equipment at the new unit includes a dedicated automated supercut machine. Heidi added: “Investing in machine technology helps us deliver the quality we want as well as maintain competitive turnaround times, even as we grow.”

The new door extension follows recent 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
