A County Durham construction specialist has announced plans to double its workforce to 140 employees after launching a new brand.
Newton Aycliffe based EOS, which manufacturers products for the construction sector, is aiming to double its workforce to £30m on the back of its expansion drive, which is starting with the launch of new brand Remagin. Established in 2006, the company designs, manufactures and markets steel frame products for the construction industry, which are typically used in housing, flats and apartments, student accommodation, hotels and public buildings.
The company forms part of the global building materials company Etex Group, which is driving innovation in the construction industry by launching Remagin, which is focussed on offsite construction. Moves towards greater offsite production has prompted Etex Group to create the new full-service business to meet customer demand and drive performance.

Remagin brings together the collective capabilities of three existing businesses – Leeds-based Sigmat, County Durham-based EOS and Horizon, operating from Ireland. The new commercial branding is part of a broader growth strategy which will see the turnover of the combined companies across the UK and Ireland more than double between now and 2030, with significant job opportunities in a number of roles.
Remagin will offer lightweight, factory-assembled panels and associated services, all based on sustainable, light gauge steel framing, and directors say the company is well placed to accelerate the scale and impact of offsite construction.
Scott Bibby, country manager Ireland and UK, said: “This is an exciting time in the development of not just our own business but the wider offsite construction sector. Due to the flexibility and proven benefits of panelised building systems, things are really taking off and by combining our joint strengths we are confident we can accelerate and maximise sector growth.
“Remagin is building on the solid foundations established by Sigmat, EOS and Horizon and is backed by Etex Group with its significant R&D and testing capacity and materials expertise. We’re in a significant position to add significant life-cycle value and sustainability benefits to our customers.”
