Focus on UK Manufacture Enables Good Capacity

Mike Crook, Trading Director for SIG Design and Technology welcomed the expanding team and confirmed good capacity in all our products:

Mike Crook - Technical Director SIG Design and Technology

“During the downturn our partners such as IKO kept on their UK factories and invested in UK manufacturing and export, so we have good capacity in our UK manufacturing base.

“Design and Technology have also invested in our Shepshed head office, doubling the size of our business. The business model is working, and we’re doing more proposals and helping more designers with their roofing challenges.”

“As architects increasingly rely on technical expertise for product selection we are here to help their in-house technical staff meet the growing demand for their services.”
