NYTimber supplies 4,000th panelised roof system

25 April 2019

NYTimber has supplied its 4,000th NYTRoof, following a series of contract wins from some of the UK’s largest housebuilders.

NYTRoof is the company’s NHBC-approved room in the roof panelised system, which comprises gable and party spandrels, and pre-insulated cassettes, replacing attic trusses.

As demand from national housebuilders has increased, the company has created 10 new jobs to increase capacity and expects to add another 10 manufacturing employees before the year is through.

NYTimber, part of the National Timber Group, introduced the NYTRoof system in 2013, joining its range of off-site manufactured timber products such as spandrel panels and trussed rafters.

“The housebuilding industry is embracing off-site solutions to realise efficiency gains, and NYTimber is in a great position to continue to provide support and capacity,” said Nick Kershaw, MD at NYTimber.

“Many companies are leaving behind supply and fit models that no longer make economic sense when the product can be delivered in kit-form and fitted by local tradespeople.”
