Another New British Modular Factory Ready to Open

ILKE Homes, a British modular homes company , which specializes in off-site manufacturing techniques, is creating 150 new jobs at its first factory in Harrogate.

The new hires will support the business as it delivers up to 2,000 modular homes a year in an effort to help solve the UK’s housing shortage.

The business plans to grow staff numbers to 800 over the next three years.

With operations due to commence at the new 270,000 sq ft factory in March at Harrogate, the jobs will initially consist of 100 people in the manufacturing and supply chain team, supported and enabled by a large team of designers, engineers and other professionals.

The manufacturing team is expected to grow to around 300 over the next 12 months.

The new team will create high-specification modular homes using the latest precision manufacturing processes to ensure durable, high-quality homes every time.

Homes will have flexible layouts with over 100 possible variations, from two-story terraced houses to three-story semi-detached properties, and blocks of apartments of up to four stories.

As mentioned before, 68% of Britain’s builders embrace modular and offsite construction and that number will continue to grow.
