The contract will see the Newry-based company export the residential bathrooms to the developer’s project, Royal Eden Docks, in east London.

This deal is part of a large push for new business throughout the UK, with the company viewing the residential market as essential for its future growth.
In the next two months, the firm will recruit joiners, operations managers, designers, general labourers, and tilers, to meet its growing order book.
Connex launched two years ago with a £1.2m investment and, due to a significant increase in production, it will move into its new £2.5m facility in August 2020, ahead of schedule.

Brendan Doherty, managing director at Connex Offsite, said: “Mount Anvil recognised the high quality of our pods and standard of service from recent major projects we have delivered in central London and decided our product was a perfect fit for their supply chain requirements.
“We have seen huge growth in recent months, and I believe the Covid-19 crisis has been the catalyst for a shift to modular construction.
“Off-site manufacturing is being embraced by the industry because of the restrictions on the level of labour on site.
“Because our pods are completely finished in a controlled environment, shrink wrapped on the factory floor, and shipped to the construction site, we are reducing the numbers of trades required on site.”
