There are usually only three times during a modular factory’s lifespan when a high-ranking government official visits the company’s manufacturing plant. First is the groundbreaking of a new factory, the second is when they are campaigning for office and the third is to visit the factory to learn what they are doing and praise them for their work in helping answer the country’s housing shortage.

The minister met some of the team responsible for designing and manufacturing the housing modules and to see first-hand the benefits that volumetric-modular construction provides.
His visit was to see the work going into a partnership between Connect Modular and Cunninghame Housing Association, and to welcome the first residents to their first volumetric-modular, affordable housing development at Shortlees, Kilmarnock.
The Cumnock tour provided an insight into the efficient manufacturing process and rigorous inspection routines delivered by Connect Modular in the production of these new homes.
