This month, we’ve been celebrating after winning the New Zealand ExportNZ awards. This is a great accolade for our team and the quality of the machines we manufacture (the only steel roll-forming machines that are 100% manufactured in NZ). For more about why we won, here’s an article that appeared this month in the UK’s Buildoffsite Magazine.
Demand expectations going from strength to strength
We are also sharing the insights from our global steel survey. We are hugely grateful for the feedback and contributions. Responses far exceeded our expectations with hundreds taking part from 65 different countries, including our major markets in North America, UK and Europe. And of course, congratulations to Dave Hawchar from Australia Wide Transportables in Perth who won return flights for two to NZ.
The survey insights bode well for the continued growth and evolution of offsite construction and building with cold formed steel. 81% of respondents are looking to increase their exposure to the sector this year in one form or another. The survey also highlighted the challenges faced by those looking to enter the sector for the first time.
New for 2019, Offsite Expo is promising to bring together those who are driving change in the construction sector. If you’re planning to visit, make sure to stop by and meet the Howick team. There’s a free ticket up for grabs if you are booking in advance.You'll find us at Stand E14.
We’re not just sending the team to Coventry this year, we are also framing up for visits to Paris, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and London before the year is out. There’s plenty of options to see first hand how Howick can help you take a slice of the steel framing and offsite construction world. Here are the dates you need to know:
