With 9,000+ carports and canopies installed across Europe and the UK by Kappion and our suppliers our carport manufacturing facilities have expanded considerably in a very short period of time. We utilise a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the Midlands, UK with access to our two carefully chosen suppliers in Europe, who run large canopy facilities supported by a number of individual production floors for manufacturing the components that make up each and every canopy.
Please note: If fabrication location is important to you, you can choose to have your carport manufactured in the UK, Germany or Poland. All locations take our unique and beautiful designs and fabricate to our exact and strict requirements. We pride ourselves on delivering a high quality, premium product; it’s all about our expert design processes, professional installation (with our own fitting teams) and our exceptional customer service – our amazing customer reviews say it all!
The streamlined factories in our process can manufacture a custom carport start to finish in 40 days from order. Every canopy design goes via structural engineers to calculate out structural calculations so that it conforms to the latest industry specifications. Snow, wind and moment loading for your postcode is completely considered and you can be sure that we will deliver a safe and strong carport. No other canopy company does this better.
To support our manufacturing teams and move everything around we utilise 5 tonne overhead cranes, which enable us to manufacture large canopy structures.
