Modular building manufacturer, Wernick Group, has just notched up a major milestone - an impressive 90 years in business.
The Wernick Group of companies has a legacy dating back to 1934, starting out as a maker of poultry crates to becoming Britain’s largest family-owned provider of portable and modular buildings, and off-grid power solutions.
Whie maintaining an enduring status as a family-owned and run business over the past nine decades, Wernick continues its mission to improve the workplace through the provision of sustainable buildings and infrastructure.
“Samuel Wernick, my great-grandfather, started his working life as a poultry dealer. He manufactured wooden crates to transport the chickens which led him to start manufacturing as a commercial enterprise," said CEO Jonathan Wernick,
"It was Sam’s ability to adapt to the opportunity of manufacturing these crates that led to the birth of the Wernick Group a few years later. This ability to adapt quickly to opportunities remains one of the key strengths of the Wernick Group 90 years later. He would be immensely proud of everything the company has achieved over that time."
The Wernick Group now consists of six businesses - Wernick Buildings, Wernick Hire, Wernick Refurbished Buildings, Wernick Events, Wernick AVDanzer, and Wernick Power Solutions. Each company within the group holds focal importance in delivering comprehensive and tailored solutions to meet the evolving needs of its clients.
The last decade has seen expansion through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth. The Wernick Group currently has forty UK operating centres, working across the public and private sectors. The Group of companies offer the sale and hire of permanent and temporary modular buildings, site accommodation and off-grid power solutions.
The last word of course goes to Wernick Group’s Chairman David Wernick, who added: “We are a 4th generation company with my son Jonathan running the Group as CEO. We take great pride in what we’ve achieved over the last 90 years and are incredibly grateful for the dedication of our employees during this period.”
