As the door closes on 2021, we have been reflecting on what has been our busiest year so far.
It began with a high demand for residential, hotel, and specialist healthcare doorsets being manufactured in our workshop, which saw our finished goods warehouse filling up very quickly. Production continued to grow and grow throughout the year, which as a result meant we had to lease additional warehousing and begin work on building a 35,000 sq ft warehouse in April.
Towards the end of the year, we installed an auxiliary warehouse in our yard to allow us to store raw materials as we wait for the build to be completed.
As one of the UK’s premier door manufacturers, it’s important that we have the best machinery possible. This year investments in our plant have been made to increase efficiency in our finishing and joinery areas.
The arrival of our 4th SCM accord 25fxm twin bed machine has been a game changer for our joinery section. This provides us greater capacity for more precise routing and drilling as demand for our doorsets remains high. A new dust extraction system for the crucial work within our frame finishing area has been installed along with a new profile sander and SCM Superfici painting line to create outstanding surfaces on our products.
