Another New Modular Factory Opens in England

It’s like the British have discovered modular home construction and are determined to be the world leader. Almost every month I’ve read where one new modular factory after another is sprouting up there and this time it’s in Liverpool.

Ideal Modular Homes has launched its new 70,000 sq ft flagship factory and two on site model homes in Liverpool, England.

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson cut the ribbon at the factory, which is set to employ over 160 people in the next two months.

The factory will be the international hub for Ideal Modular and has been specifically designed to manufacture over 900 modules per year.

The production line is now capable of creating a completed two-storey house in less than five days thanks to the company’s bespoke designs and state-of-the-art manufacturing methods.

Strategically situated on Triumph Business Park, it provides excellent access routes across the UK and its close proximity to the port of Liverpool means that it is also able to offer direct shipping to clients in Ireland too.

I’m still perplexed why so many other countries are building so many new modular home factories while the US, the biggest producer of modular and manufactured homes in the world is lagging behind in both production and adding new capacity.
