Gaynor Tennant – Co-Founder and Chair of the Offsite Alliance and Simon Griffiths – Head of Sales, Offsite Construction at Sika
As part of its commitment to offsite manufacturing across the nation, Sika has joined the Offsite Alliance, a membership organisation that increases the uptake and delivery of offsite technologies in the residential sector.
With offsite’s benefits clear to see, Sika’s membership will further enhance offsite manufacturing’s adoption across the UK. Sika will draw on its world-leading status as a manufacturer and supplier of construction materials for a wide variety of applications, to drive the construction industry closer to the offsite manufacturing transformation it is calling out for.
Sika joins the Offsite Alliance at a time when it has a dedicated MMC Division that works with modular manufacturers to look at how Sika products can be used as part of the process in this fast-growing sector. Sika’s decision to be part of the Offsite Alliance signifies the company’s commitment to the offsite manufacturing effort. Through a combination of action and collaboration, Sika will work with fellow like-minded organisations to promote best practice, share innovation and work together to create the high quality, sustainable homes of the future.
Speaking of the news, Simon Griffiths – Head of Sales, Offsite Construction at Sika said: “We are delighted to have joined the Offsite Alliance. We see a perfect strategic fit. We have a great team at Sika, who in many cases, are already involved in driving forward industry and association agendas. We see this addition as a natural step forward to working collaboratively with the MMC industry, to raise the profile and standards, and to help deliver the aspirations of the industry.”
Founded in 2019, the Offsite Alliance works alongside leading organisations, industry bodies, government, local authorities, housing associations, and most importantly, its members, to cultivate adoption of offsite technologies across the residential sector.
Sika is an international market leader offering the industry’s widest product ranges for sealing and bonding, roofing, building finishing, passive fire protection, damping and reinforcing, concrete, flooring, waterproofing and wall finishes for interior and exterior applications, and bathroom pod waterproofing and tiling systems.
