Leading door manufacturer DOORCO is celebrating a decade of supplying one of the commercial sector’s most popular composite doors. Over the period, the UK based manufacturer has supplied hundreds of thousands of doors into the new build and social housing markets. Customers over the decade include some of the largest names with well-known brands such Persimmon, Bellway, Barratt, Redrow, Bloors, Wimpey, Crest, Countryside and Millers relying on DOORCO for quality, performance and value for money when it comes to door specification.
Dan Sullivan, DOORCO Managing Director comments: “We attribute much of our success over the last decade to the fact that we have an experienced network of customers across the UK who manufacture composite doors using DOORCO slabs. They’re experts in working in the demanding commercial arena, with flexibility to meet a variety of needs from the largest high volume social housing developments, to supplying bespoke niche doors for higher end private developments. This service goes hand in hand with the DOORCO product quality itself which represents one of the most heavily invested-in composite doors currently available in the UK. We have spent on our product engineering and design, manufacturing and distribution facility, as well as expanding the door range itself to include some exciting ‘first’ unique composite doors: the DOORCO LINKS, the first door to link aluminium aesthetics with composite performance, and the new flagship MONZA which sets a new benchmark in contemporary doors.
“The composite door sector is a competitive place to be so it’s imperative that suppliers can deliver whatever our customers need. DOORCO’s strategy has been to take control of the entire manufacturing process and invest in the best machinery for the job, which for us includes two state of the art paint lines, two edge banders, a beam saw, and three CNCs representing a third of a million spend. Our warehouse and distribution hub is now home to 30,000 doors in stock at any time. Colour is also an important commercial sector driver and coloured doors represent 60% of DOORCO’s sales. With the demand for colour comes the demand for paint. That’s why we took the decision earlier this year to invest £125,000 in the Schubox® - a system universally accepted as the most advanced and efficient IR drying and curing system of its type in the world - to ensure we maintain control of supply and continue to meet the necessary lead times, regardless of colour.
“All of this investment results in a composite door solution for the commercial market than is second to none. We can offer bespoke specification doors for individual requirements; full PAS 23/24 Doc Q compliant products; one of the industry’s widest ranges of door models, colours and sizes available direct from the manufacturer. And because we’re confident in our in-house manufacture, we can offer a 20-year structural warranty; 10-year paint warranty and 5-year stained door warranty.
“Demand for composite doors continues its relentless trend and shows no sign of slowing Together with our customers, DOORCO is determined to continue to the commercial composite door of choice for the next decade and beyond.”
