HEY PRESS-TO! POSI-JOIST SUCCESS
After the successful commissioning of the higher volume Posi-Joist Revolution Press in Ilkeston last year, we have very quickly grown our Posi-Joist sales to a level where we need additional capacity.
We have now acquired and commissioned two more standard presses, one for our Oxfordshire site and the other for Fife. This will allow us to continue to grow sales within existing business units and deliver Posi-Joists more efficiently into the South West of England and Scotland.
This planned growth is also likely to be complemented by MiTek's latest Posi-Joist development, Posi-Joist FireSafe. Posi-Joist FireSafe is an engineered joist solution that satisfies the robustness requirements of Category C timber frame construction, and achieves two points in this application. With this product, the flanges are treated with an approved FR build flame retardant, and each web in the joist has two Young Black (33x38 JH34/GR) nails fixed through either the outer row or second row of slots.
POSITIVE PARTNERSHIP: OUR FRIENDS IN THE NORTH
Earlier this year, we trialled a partnership with Billingham-based component manufacturer and supplier, Qubiq, to supply and fit roof trusses for main contractors and housebuilders in the North East of England.
The first project was with Kier North Tyneside for the Foxhunters Playing Fields Pavilion in Whitley Bay. This proved to be very successful for both DTE and Qubiq. The project was delivered on time, despite major site restrictions, and it also generated considerable add-on sales for both parties. Consequently we have successfully completed numerous other contracts in the North East.
Following this, we are thrilled to announce that we are not only improving our offer to include the supply and fit of engineered joists, but also expanding our geographical coverage across the M62 corridor and up to the Scottish Borders, where we have access to reliable squads of erectors.
