At OFP, we pride ourselves in producing, delivering and installing the best timber frame solutions for our clients whilst maintaining our commitment to working in the most sustainable ways possible and using Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) such as off-site manufacturing. 

To be able to deliver this promise, we have heavily invested in our factory over the last couple of years. Our factory is at the heart of everything we do, and with that in mind, we have purposely built it with a focus on expertise, innovation, and quality. 

We service the South East, London and the rest of the home counties all from our Kent factory in Sandwich, Kent. We have designed it to suit off-site manufacturing requirements perfectly, which means we can deliver quality and accuracy every time!

Our factory combines quality and capacity through the utilisation of fantastic equipment that puts us at the forefront of the industry:

Sawdust Pellets and Biomass Boiler

Our factory has the machinery to create pellets from waste sawdust. We burn these sawdust pellets in our biomass boiler to create energy to heat our factory and offices. We can produce up to 120 bags of pellets per week from sawdust, recycling offcuts and waste wood.

Finger Jointing Machinery 

At OFP, we don’t like waste. This is why our factory is equipped to join 2 offcuts of wood together to make a full length. These short offcuts would otherwise be wasted in the manufacturing process. Every effort counts to be more sustainable and reduce waste.

Water Interceptors 

We have water interceptors installed in our factory within the pipework to collect and hold contaminants. This means that all the remaining wastewater can be discharged safely into the main sewerage system.

Solar Panels 

Our roofs are fitted with solar panels, which help to supply the energy required to power our manufacturing facility. Among all the benefits of solar panels, the most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source.

Insulation & Venilation

Our manufacturing facilities are fully insulated and have double-glazed windows throughout. We do not have any air conditioning in the building, using only natural ventilation. Finally, our premises have an Energy B rating.

Additional Mezzanine Floor 

Another unique feature of our factory is a mezzanine floor which we introduced in 2022. We can now have panel benches on top and underneath the mezzanine floor, which frees up the right-hand side of our factory floor. This gives us more space for extra materials and work benches. It also gives us the additional space to build larger format panels and cassettes.

When building our factory, we wanted to make sure we were doing our part to reduce any impact that it would have on the environment.  All of these key features and equipment of our factory have helped us to achieve our sustainability goals in 2022 and are in line with our ESG policy. 

We are always looking forward and for ways to continually lead the way in creating a more sustainable construction industry.
