UK manufacturer of PVCu windows, doors and composite doors, Euramax, has announced that it will supply ilke Homes with windows and doors for 2,000 modular homes
Based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, Euramax has collaborated with modular homes specialist ilke Homes to supply windows and doors for 2,000 of its homes.
ilke Homes, also based in Yorkshire, manufactures and supplies customisable modular homes, with a completion time of seven days, as well as offering turnkey development contracts and strategic partnerships with housing associations, private developers and local authorities.
Richard Banks, commercial director at Euramax, said: “Euramax is delighted to work with ilke Homes and partake in the development of its homes.
“Previously, ilke Homes had been receiving separate deliveries for glass and window frames, which would then be sorted into specific module requirements. This meant that there was double the handling of products, increasing the risk of damage.”
Banks added: “In addition, transportation of products was also increased as there were multiple stillages of glass and frames that were sent to the production line.
“Instead, Euramax has provided ilke Homes with the glass and window frames in one stillage, ensuring they have everything they need for each module.”
Racheal Kaye, procurement manager at ilke Homes, commented: “Not only did Euramax provide ilke Homes with quality products, but it also provided us with a solution that streamlines our processes.
“Receiving the glass and frames for each module in specific stillages means that we can save time and costs as handling, transport and damage is reduced. This not only optimises our own process, but greatly reduces our impact on the environment, helping us to maintain modular’s greener construction status.
“Euramax even provided module identification numbers to help us to identify the correct stillage for the required module, making the process even simpler.”
Bank concluded: “We understand how important modular construction has become to help deliver the thousands more houses needed to alleviate the UK housing crisis — and we’re dedicated to supporting this in any way we can.”
