The multi-million pound investment will create one of NTS’s largest manufacturing sites and over 100 jobs.

NTS is a leading supplier of engineered timber and off-site construction products, including the panelised roof system NTSROOF, floor and wall cassettes, engineered joists, roof trusses and spandrel panels.

The division currently supplies housebuilders, developers and the modular sector nationally from its four sites across the country at Sheffield, Catterick, Newcastle and Bristol. It has a turnover of almost £50m and employs 240 people in total.

“With the new site at Wolverhampton we are strengthening our geography towards having a true national footprint with sites in Yorkshire, the north-east, south-west and now the Midlands,” said Nick Kershaw, NTS managing director.

“It also signals a step-change in our manufacturing capability to service the increased level of customer demand generally and for our ranges of new and innovative products.

“A number of different engineered wood products will be manufactured at Wolverhampton,” continued Mr Kershaw. “Turnover from this site alone is expected to exceed £20m. We will start recruiting soon and the site will be fully operational later this year.”
