Offsite construction specialists, The McAvoy Group, has appointed David Clark as manufacturing director, in the hopes of expanding the company’s production capacity
David Clark joined McAvoy in 2012 and will now take overall responsibility for offsite manufacturing across the group. In his new role, he will manage the expansion of production capacity to meet the business’s strategic growth plans. He will be driving productivity improvements across the manufacturing process, embedding both automation and digital solutions where possible.
Clark will also ensure McAvoy retains flexibility in its production systems to deliver a wide range of offsite solutions, including permanent, bespoke modular buildings for hospitals, schools and commercial applications; offsite housing for rent and market sale, and interim facilities to meet short-term customer needs.
Eugene Lynch, managing director of The McAvoy Group, said: “David’s leadership, knowledge and commitment will continue to be invaluable as we implement our growth strategy across the UK and Ireland.
“He has played a significant role in embedding innovation across the business to ensure we remain at the forefront of offsite manufacturing and indeed the construction industry in this area. His appointment as a director of the business further strengthens our management team and supports our ambitious plans for growth. We look forward to welcoming him to the McAvoy Board.”
In his previous role as head of manufacturing and innovation, David Clark led the group’s work in applying digital technology to offsite construction.
