Scotframe makes senior appointment to target English self-build housing market

SCOTFRAME is targeting a larger slice of the self-build housing market in England after appointing Danny Johnson to the role of business development manager for the north of England.

The firm said the move follows ‘growing demand’ for timber frame homes in the region and across the UK. 

Danny Johnson, who previously worked with a smaller timber frame operation, will support Inverurie-headquartered Scotframe’s private and commercial self-build customers with planning and managing the construction of their homes and premises.

He said, “Scotframe have a growing reputation for design and architectural excellence combined with superb customer service. I am very much looking forward to supporting their ambitions to grow their customer base as well as spreading the word about the many benefits of offsite timber frame construction. The importance of sustainability and energy efficiency is really striking a chord with people.”

Malcolm Thomson, sales director at Scotframe added, “Danny’s experience in the timber frame sector and his strong background in customer service means he will be a great addition to our team. Currently Scotland leads the way in timber frame construction, with 83% of new build homes in Scotland using timber frame, compared to just 23% in England. However, the market share for timber construction in England is steadily rising and Danny will play an important role in developing Scotframe’s offering south of the border alongside Scotframe colleagues in other parts of the country.”

Established in 1989, Scotframe currently has 192 employees and a £36.5 million turnover. It has manufacturing facilities in Inverurie and at Cumbernauld, plus sales offices and showrooms at Inverness, Dundee and Swindon.
