Plasters and plasterboard company Siniat has bought EOS Facades, an innovator in light gauge steel construction.
EOS has formed strategic alliances with some major players in the construction industry, including Kier, Bam and Barratt London and been directly involved with such high profile projects as the £80m North West Cambridge Development, Fulham Wharf, Enderby Wharf and the Education Funding Agency project to deliver six schools, worth £44m across the Midlands.
In January 2016 EOS announced investment in the company’s fifth Howick machine – the only FRAMA machine in the UK – which is providing unique sections and pre-assembled elements for the offsite and volumetric modular building sector.
Steve Thompson, managing director of EOS Facades said: “This as an investment for the future and for manufacturing jobs here in County Durham. EOS Facades is an ambitious company and this deal will open up further opportunities for investment and innovation to ensure we remain at the forefront of research and development and to meet the exacting demands of the construction industry.”
