Global building materials company Etex Group has launched a new brand focussed entirely on offsite construction.

The new brand, called ‘Remagin’, brings together three existing businesses: Yorkshire-based Sigmat, County Durham-based EOS, and Horizon, operating from Ireland.

Etex says the new commercial branding is part of a broader growth strategy that will see the turnover of the combined companies across the UK and Ireland “more than double” between now and 2030.

The new brand will offer lightweight, factory-assembled panels and associated services based on sustainable, light-gauge steel framing (LGSF).

Remagin’s integrated building systems offer an end-to-end project solution.

Etex says the new company is “well placed” to accelerate the scale and impact of offsite construction.

‘Really taking off’

Patrick Balemans, head of New Ways division, Etex Group, said: “As part of our sustained efforts to contribute to a better future, we continuously look to evolve what we do and how we do things.

“I’m proud to announce the launch of our new commercial brand, Remagin, which offers highly efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable integrated building systems that surpass those of traditional construction methods.”

Remagin will serve sectors including housing, care, student accommodation, education, and health.

Scott Bibby, country manager Ireland and UK, explained: “This is an exciting time in the development of not just our own business but the wider offsite construction sector.

“Due to the flexibility and proven benefits of panelised building systems, things are really taking off, and by combining our joint strengths, we are confident we can accelerate and maximise sector growth.

“Remagin is building on the solid foundations established by Sigmat, EOS and Horizon and is backed by Etex Group with its significant R&D and testing capacity and materials expertise.

“We’re in a strong position to add significant lifecycle value and sustainability benefits to our customers.”
