AV Danzer Re-Groups After Major Growth

Site accommodation hire firm AV Group, along with its manufacturing arm Danzer Limited, will now trade under the unified brand AV Danzer after enjoying a record growth period.

The move comes after year on year growth for both businesses which are closely interlinked as the Manchester based AV Group achieved an 18% profit rise in the year up to September 2015, with turnover increasing from £5.8 million to £6.8 million.

Danzer Limited is based at Langley Mill in Nottingham and has achieved a turnover of more than £5 million.

The company also has a third depot covering the South of England, based in Essex, and employs 76 staff across its three sites.

While they will continue to exist as separate companies, they will now trade and operate throughout the UK and Europe under one unified brand, with the aim of simplifying production, marketing, sales, order and invoicing processes.

AV Danzer rents accommodation unites to many of the biggest construction firms in the UK, with its 4,000 plus strong hire fleet of steel anti-vandal units being used by leading construction companies such as Graham Construction, Wates, Renaker, Eric Wright Group, BAM and Skanska.

Along with the manufacture of hire units, the production arm also produces modular buildings for sale to leisure operators, industry, schools and public sector organisations.

This year, AV Danzer has recruited new CAD technicians as well as a new Production Manager at Langley Mill and has also invested in new production facilities, order system and accountancy software to make sure that it continues to deliver a market leading service, excellent customer service and swift delivery.

In October work will get under way on manufacturing new offices for the Langley Mill site to accommodate its growing team which will see a further investment of £100k.

Commenting on the move Managing Director Helen Scott said: “The hire company has been trading for almost thirty years and has grown organically during this time. Manufacturing at Langley Mill began in 1995 and has also seen huge growth, in particular with repeat orders from Local Authorities across the country for flexible and affordable classroom solutions.”
