East Yorkshire modular installation firm Frontier Modular Services have strengthened their management team with the appointment of Adam Millikin as Operations Manager.

Adam, who was previously Construction Manager at Ideal Modular Homes, has joined directors Rich Pooley and Lindsey Nicklin to further strengthen the senior team as the firm aims to buck the post-lockdown trend with a growth spurt.

Rich said: “Adam and I worked together for a number of years when we were both learning our trade and it’s a huge pleasure to now welcome him into our management team as one of the country’s most skilled and reputable operations managers.”

Adam’s role will encompass business development, contract negotiation and management, and all aspects of client liaison and care. Rich will focus on using his outstanding installation knowledge and capability to train the workforce to Frontier’s high standards and oversee site management on projects, while Lindsey will continue to manage the finance and administration arms of the growing business.

Adam said: “It’s an honour to join a remarkable company that has achieved so much in such a short time. Frontier has already gained an impressive reputation within the industry for top quality workmanship and I’m looking forward to bringing more projects and clients into the fold.”

In common with many construction organisations, COVID-19 dealt Frontier Modular a blow as team members were unable to work and essential supplies became difficult to source, causing project delays. But business is back on track now as workforce numbers are rising again, and the order book is looking extremely healthy.

Lindsey said: “Adam’s appointment is the next step in our journey to being the UK’s leading modular installers. With our workforce and turnover increasing, we expect to attract larger projects, with clients who appreciate the unrivalled level of quality and professionalism that we offer.”

Frontier Modular Services enjoyed a meteoric rise to success within its first year after launching in late 2017, which was recognised with a Federation of Small Businesses ‘start-up’ award in 2019. In less than a year, the business went from a standing start to becoming one of the most sought-after modular installation companies in the country and is now operating nationwide on major developments alongside some of the country’s biggest contractors.

The management team believe this success is due to their consistent and uncompromising focus on quality. Rich added: “The unrivalled level of our workmanship combined with our knowledge and experience puts us head and shoulders above the competition.

“From the start, I wanted to attract the best calibre people possible by offering a good wage and a supportive working environment where the focus is on collaboration. We ensure every project is delivered to our client’s satisfaction. It is this ability to continually deliver a top quality service that has granted us an outstanding reputation.”

The modular sector is growing rapidly. More building projects are using off-site manufactured units for developments such as hospitals, schools, hotels and even housing. Contractors need reliable, trustworthy and competent companies to perform the installations and Frontier makes sure it is always in step with technological developments.

Lindsey added: “We manage to blend an old-fashioned hard work ethic and rigorous high standards with a modern, progressive approach to our operations and customer service. It’s proved a winning combination so far and, with Adam’s help, we’re looking forward to an exciting new chapter in Frontier’s development.”
