Danzer re-groups following significant growth

Following a period of record growth, Nottingham-based modular building manufacturer Danzer and its sister company AV Group, which hires site accommodation units, will now trade under one unified brand, AVDanzer.

The move follows year on year growth for the companies, which are closely interlinked. Danzer, which is based at Langley Mill, achieved a turnover of over £5m in 2015. AV Group, based in Denton, Manchester achieved an 18% increase in profit in the year to September 2015, with turnover up to £6.8m from £5.8m. The firm also has a third depot to cover the south of England which is based in Essex. The company employs 76 staff across its three sites.

Although Danzer and AV Group will continue to exist as separate companies they will now operate and trade across the UK and Europe under one unified brand, with the aim to simplify production, sales, marketing, order and invoicing processes.

AVDanzer rents accommodation units to many of the UK’s largest construction firms. Its 4000-plus strong hire fleet of steel anti-vandal units are used by leading construction firms such as Skanska, BAM, Eric Wright Group, Renaker, Wates and Graham Construction.

As well as manufacturing the hire units the production arm in Nottingham also produces modular buildings for sale to schools, industry, leisure operators and public sector organisations.

Managing director Helen Scott said: “The hire company has been trading for almost thirty years and has grown organically during this time. Manufacturing at Langley Mill began in 1995 and has also seen huge growth, in particular with repeat orders from Local Authorities across the country for flexible and affordable classroom solutions.

“Today we now have two separate and thriving businesses and the time is right for us to bring the operations together to deliver a more integrated offer. We are expanding into European markets and both the hire and sales side of the business are growing at a phenomenal rate so it makes sense now to be represented by one single brand and deliver a more streamlined operation”.
