The EOS manufacturing facility in County Durham is a 40,000 sq ft operation that houses state-of-the-art machinery and technology that provides offsite systems and solutions that meet the needs of our customers.
Our manufacturing facility is well equipped to cater for the demands of offsite construction and precision engineering. Our sophisticated roll-forming machines have embedded framing technology that enables production of self-jigging framing components that are ready for assembly, removing the need for any manual cutting onsite.
Our factory is home to our fifth Howick machine – the only FRAMA machine in the UK. This allows us to support the volumetric modular building sector together with the high bay and continuous walling industries. In addition to our 150mm range, we also offer 200 and 250mm deep sections in gauge thickness, ranging from 1.2mm to 2mm. Section lengths are fully customisable.
The Manufacturing Journey
Once the panels have been designed using our 3D Tekla modelling software, they are directly uploaded to the roll-forming machines, using a bespoke CAD/CAM interface, where they are produced to exact dimensions using CNC technology. Each stud is identified with an inkjet printer to match the assembly drawing and every frame has an identification label attached. This identifies the project, frame number, order number and site location on the GA site drawings so they can be positioned quickly to their onsite location.
All of our products are manufactured under strict quality management control which is fully compliant with BS EN ISO 9001:2008. Our accredited quality management systems and procedures eradicate onsite variability and ensure lifetime ‘in service’ performance and durability.
