Building a better future

During its partnership with LDC, the company shifted its approach to support its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2035. To help Sigmat achieve this objective, no waste is sent to landfill and the three per cent of waste that cannot be recycled is turned into electricity and fed back into the grid. Its structures are also built using 42 per cent recycled materials and with a 30 per cent faster build speed, light-gauge steel framing technology is a more sustainable method of construction.

In August 2021, LDC exited its investment in Sigmat to Etex, the international building products group. We helped the business to increase revenues by approximately 75 per cent and to grow its headcount to 235 people. Sigmat is now pursuing further growth across the UK.
