WYG has today announced a global strategic alliance with Switzerland-based, Magnum Technology Solutions.
The new alliance will enable the global multi-disciplinary consultancy and Magnum Technology Solutions, a leading company in providing innovative construction materials, to collaborate on a worldwide basis to deliver cost effective, pre-engineered turnkey housing and construction solutions.
The alliance is already working on a number of opportunities in the United Arab Emirates and has a pipeline of prospects across the Asia-Pacific region, India and the African continent.
Paul Hamer, Chief Executive Officer, WYG said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Magnum Technology Solutions and look forward to drawing on the numerous synergies between our two companies and pursuing these across our chosen markets.
“As we build on our global integrated strategy, this new partnership will help strengthen our client offering in our international markets. By utilising the Magnum Technology product, we can significantly reduce the current cost, complexity and overall timescale to deliver turnkey housing solutions. The simplicity of the product also allows the team to utilise local construction labour and thus help build capacity in the local economy.”
Mr Hamer continued: “As an enterprising business with the foresight to meet both the industry’s and our clients’ future needs we are always looking at new ways to support the critical move to a low-carbon economy and provide our clients with cost effective solutions.
“I am pleased, therefore, that we can now offer clients highly efficient, cost effective housing solutions based on Magnum Technology Solutions’ new building product - Magnum Panel Systems.”
