System Building Products, a new business brand that specialises in the design, manufacture and supply of internal and external solutions to the construction industry, has been created to embrace the resurgence in demand for complete and integrated building systems.
“Cost effective functionality combined with high performance, safety and aesthetics are all determined by the integration of components into a properly designed system,” said John Cowley, Chief Executive of the newly founded operation. “That’s why we’ve brought a number of our businesses together into a single entity.”
The creation of System Building Products unites some well-known and highly respected construction manufacturing names including Omnis, Britdoors, JCK and Burgess.
“The formation of the new business represents the next stage in our evolution to becoming a complete system provider,” said John Cowley. “Increasingly the trend in the construction industry is away from individual components and towards well-designed, properly integrated systems which are appropriately installed. By bringing our businesses together we are evolving to meet that demand.”
As part of an ongoing plan, the company is continually investing in manufacturing and operations, as well as the development of innovative products and services. It will also be offering a series of new warranty schemes, including an insurance-backed product, which will cover entire systems rather than individual components.
The businesses which have come together to form System Building Products have a long history of landmark projects. These include: roofing systems for Wembley Stadium and the Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid, metal ceiling systems for the prestigious One Tower Bridge development, renovation of the fourth span of Paddington Station’s roof, reconstituted stone panels for Royal Wharf, rainscreen cladding together with framing for Ferrari’s iconic showroom in Egham and interior acoustic solutions for the Financial Times headquarters refurbishment.
