Investment Boosts Direct Door Supply

Composite door supplier, DoorCo has put £750,000 into a full redesign of its manufacturing hub in Macclesfield. The investment will boost its prepped doors supply service and improve customer service by unlocking extra capacity.

MD Dan Sullivan says: “The manufacturing or prepped door side of DoorCo, which now makes up 30% of our sales, has evolved so that we have customers with different requirements which differ massively from the retail sector, for example, to the commercial new build and social housing sectors.

“It’s essential DoorCo can support its customers, no matter how much prepping support they need and in what volume.

“We cater for any specification and can prep for any lock; any hinge; open in; open out; edgeband painted or not. We can paint to any colour, whether from our Approved DoorCo PAiNT range or to match any RAL, using our three state-of-the art paint lines, and we can pre-glaze doors with DoorCo Approved (and some exclusive) GLAZiNG designs in either our own FLiP glazing cassette system, or Inox cassettes. We also support our Distribution customers – larger fabricators with in-house manufacturing facilities – with additional services, like painting, prepping for bespoke orders or to support capacity.”


Glazerite celebrates a ten-year partnership with DoorCo

Fabricastor Glazerite says it is taking its offering back to basics, putting the installer customer base at the heart of the business. This includes a refresh of a composite door offering coinciding with hitting a 10-year partnership with DoorCo as a supplier.


“DoorCo has a commitment to innovation on new door designs and responding to market trends by introducing new colour and glazing options,” explains Glazerite’s group MD, Robert Brearley. “Later this year, we’ll be bringing DoorCo’s GRiPCORE, the new solid core composite door, into our range. It’s important that we enable our installer partners to stand out from the crowd in their own markets, so it’s essential we partner with suppliers who allow us to do the same.”
