Modular homes specialist set to create 200 jobs this year with new Yorkshire base

A modular homes manufacturer is set to create 200 jobs over the next year as it reveals plans for a new Yorkshire base.

IDMH, which makes timber homes in sections, has announced that it will be setting up a new warehouse at Tinsley Industrial Estate in Sheffield.

The 208,663 sq ft site was formerly home to AB InBev UK, and will become IDMH’s new design to manufacturing base.

As part of the expansion, the company has announced that it is expecting to create 200 jobs across the next twelve months.

Sonny Burrows, chief operating officer at IDMH, said: “The decision to expand has been driven by Modern Methods of Construction complimenting the existing housing supply chain to add more capacity into the system and increase the quality and availability of much needed housing.

“Our existing factory in Liverpool has a team of 70 people currently in 50,000 sq ft whereas the new site is over 200,000 sq ft allowing us to expand and satisfy the demand for new contracts won, to act as a springboard to win more work, and to allow multiple production lines to extend our portfolio.

“We already have 35 people in Sheffield and expect that to rise to 80 in the next few months with 150-200 jobs in the next year. These will be a broad range of skilled and technical STEM jobs from joiners to architects and we will be actively recruiting in the area. We also want to encourage our new staff to use the fantastic public transport links to our site.

“The location is excellent. Logistically, the site is perfect in terms of our distribution needs nationwide, and we are already looking at good collaborative opportunities with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre nearby. These are exciting times for us.”
