Homag/Weinmann Closed Panel Timber Frame Manufacturing Line
MMC MODULAR TIMBER FRAME BUILDING MANUFACTURER CLOSES FACILITY
Established 4 years ago, Countryside Timber Frame Limited (“CTFL”) is a group company of Countryside Partnership, the UKs leading mixed-tenure developer. One of the earliest adopters of
Modern Methods of Construction, the company have invested heavily in research and development, and commitment to sustainable construction. This led to the development of three modular panel factories.
After a recent strategic review CTFL have taken the decision to close their manufacturing facility in Bardon, Leicestershire. The 384,000 square foot facility houses a state-of-the-art timber frame
manufacturing line that was designed and installed in a bespoke package offering streamlined and efficient production capabilities. Additionally, the site benefits from new ‘floor line’ along with modern and high-quality site support assets.
Chartered Surveyors, Walker Singleton, have been appointed to market and sell assets of the business. Stephen Jones, Director in the Machinery & Business Assets Department stated “The production assets of the business are state-of-the-art, with only one other comparable line in operation within Europe. The line has been designed to produce an advanced closed panel product supporting the move to Modern Methods of Construction. It is an exciting opportunity for any company wishing to place themselves at the forefront of the timber frame construction industry. The equipment is geared to a volume output and has the capacity to produce 3,000 units per annum. High regard has been placed on maintenance and upkeep of all equipment with all assets being of industry recognised manufacture.
Interest is invited for the whole manufacturing line to be removed from site. Should a suitable party not be found the line will be included in a planned online auction of the wider assets of the facility.
