We’ve invested £1.2m in our modular building UK hire fleet

Helen Scott, Managing Director

The AV Group have invested £1.2m in it’s modular building UK hire fleet recently, and we’ve recruited 16 new staff to help with the surge in demand for our modular buildings.

Denton-based site accommodation company AV Group has invested £1.2m in upgrading its fleet of hire accommodation units. The fleet is being renewed and the oldest units replaced to reflect the requirements of clients and ensure the highest quality standards are maintained.

The investment comes after a strong performance in 2013 which saw AV Group provide on-site accommodation to construction clients including BAM UK, Wates, McLaren, Grahams, Skanska and Eric Wright Group amongst many others.

In 2013 AV Group provided over 1,000 hire units for major construction schemes across the country including the new Graphene Institute in Manchester, McLaren’s £90m mixed-use development in Bromley and BAM’s new Co-operative HQ in Manchester One Angel Square. The swift growth surge has also come from house builders such as Taylor Wimpey, Barratt and Jones Homes who use the firm’s steel anti-vandal cabins on development sites across the country.

The increase in sales in December 2013 alone represented a 15% growth in rental income on the 2012 figures, and is a clear indication that demand for the firm’s products and services has risen as confidence begins to return to the construction sector.

Family-firm AV Group was established in 1986 by John Holloway and today is run by Directors Helen Scott and sons Dan and Bill Holloway. Commenting on the investment Helen Scott said: “The uptake in business has been really encouraging and as such we have taken the decision to make a significant additional investment into our fleet. Our hire business is really picking up as construction firms are moving forward with developing schemes, many of which have been on hold awaiting funding or interest from occupiers and we are really seeing that pick up in the first quarter of 2014.”

AV Group also operates Danzer Ltd, which manufactures the steel hire units as well as creating bespoke modular buildings for schools, colleges and companies.

The firm recently recruited 16 new staff to help with a huge surge in demand for its products, growing from 24 to 40 employees based across its sites in Nottingham and Manchester.

Further evidence of housing market recovery shown in production of site accommodation by Nottingham firm

Danzer Ltd’s recent positive performance in the construction sector is perhaps further evidence of a resurgent housing market. The increased demand for the company’s pre-fabricated anti-vandal buildings from residential house builders including Taylor Wimpey, Barratt and Jones Homes, strengthens the view that the domestic new build sector is growing with a confidence not seen since before the banking crisis.

AV Group unveil new modular building

New AV Group office in Denton

Watch this space…
AV Group are set to unveil new modular building accommodation
We cleared our desks, packed our bags, unplugged our computers and waved goodbye to our modular buildings on Windmill Lane a few weeks ago. They have served us well, but like any older building they were beginning to look a bit jaded around the edges so we decided it was time to treat ourselves to what we do best for our clients – a brand new modular workspace with the highest quality finishes and facilities – new workspaces, new loos, new meeting rooms and a new kitchen.
We’ve included rainwater harvesting so we can wash our vehicles and hire units and we are especially looking forward to a cosy Winter 2013 with the extra insulation and double glazing.

Now we are putting the finishing touches to our brand new home here at our Denton HQ and can’t wait to show you the final results. Pictures coming very soon….

AV Group supporting The Africa Trust

We at the AV Group and Danzer Limited are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in water coolers from AquAid – our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Our decision to install a water cooler from AquAid means that for each one of the machines that we have, we have donated £20 per year per cooler to The Africa Trust.

Through our contributions to The Africa Trust, an ‘Elephant Pump’ is being installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well.

Our company’s name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our site in the near future.

AquAid, along with their sister company Perfect Printer Cartridges have to date donated over 6 Million Pounds to Charity. www.aquaid.co.uk
