The most recent Made in Yorkshire breakfast event was hosted by Portakabin on Thursday 2nd March at their 250,000m2 production facility in York.

Since Portakabin was founded as a pioneering manufacturer of portable and modular buildings, we have continued to innovate and develop exceptional buildings that meet the challenges of efficient, sustainable, high-quality construction.

Portakabin have manufactured more than 50 million square feet of accommodation for a huge variety of applications, from offices, nurseries and classrooms to hospital wards, call centres and laboratories.

The event was particularly special, as Portakabin invited Made in Yorkshire guests to exhibit their own services within their premises. Portakabin’s Manufacturing Sector Expert, Matt Stevens explained: “If you have got the space to let people exhibit then do it, companies having a stand here did seem to help so I would definitely recommend that.”

Over 40 people with a vested interest in manufacturing arrived at Portakabin’s event and were taken on an informative tour of their extensive premises. Stevens discussed his immediate thoughts on the event, as he stated: “I think it has been very successful, there was a good number of people that turned up, who obviously know a lot more about Portakabin and what we can offer so I think it has gone really well.”

When you need a new building, no matter what the end use or how many people it needs to accommodate, you can be sure that Portakabin has a portable cabins or modular building to meet your needs. Their all-steel prefabricated buildings are manufactured to ISO9001 quality standards and meet all existing building regulations - so you can be sure that whatever building you need, it will be constructed to the highest standards.

Made in Yorkshire breakfast events aim to facilitate networking and business opportunities amongst MD’s and CEO’s of local manufacturing companies, as Stevens said: “I think these events are a very good way of doing it, as we have looked at various different platforms in the past, such as Chambers of Commerce. They don’t tend to have the same sort of impact as these events do, as there seems to be a real desire for people to talk to each other about how they can work together which makes it a very good event.”

Our next event is the biggest manufacturing exhibition in the Yorkshire region. Following our historic merger with Manufactured Yorkshire, we are set to welcome the very best of the Yorkshire manufacturing sector to Elland Road, Leeds on Wednesday 10th May. You can join us by registering your ticket to the event here.
