McAvoy ‘model’ company for American businesses

McAvoy today (Thursday 18th October) played host to a group of like minded businesses from the USA.

McAvoy Group, who are renowned in their sector for innovation, welcomed members of the Modular Building Institute (MBI) USA to their facility in Lisburn where visitors were given a tour to witness first-hand the market leading offsite construction methods employed by McAvoy.

The visit, organised by Bob Mears, was geared towards showcasing best practice in construction methods and provide member companies with the chance to explore opportunities for potential collaboration and strategic business development.

Tom Hardiman, Executive Director, MBI commented:

“McAvoy Group has developed a considerable reputation for product excellence across the UK and Ireland and we were very keen to meet their team and explore first-hand their construction methods.

“I am confident those who have taken part in this visit will have gained much from the excellent and informed networking and from experiencing best practice on the factory floor at McAvoy.”

The Modular Building Institute (MBI) is the international non-profit trade association serving modular construction.

“It is MBI’s mission to expand the use of offsite construction through innovative construction practices and recognition of high quality modular designs and facilities. McAvoy has clearly demonstrated how there are great opportunities especially within the education and health sectors for modular construction companies like our members,” added Mr Hardiman.

Earlier this year McAvoy helped host a two day fact finding visit to the Province by leading members of the UK’s Buildoffsite Organisation. Orla Corr OBE, Marketing and Business Development Director with McAvoy, said the Group was delighted to host a second visit to their production facilities at Lisburn.

“It’s terrific that a company such as ours is viewed as world-leaders in the modular construction industry by esteemed organisations including the American Modular Building Institute. It has been a pleasure to meet other professionals in the offsite industry and I am confident this visit it will open doors to collaborations in the future.”
