Distinction celebrates the 3 millionth composite door leaving their factory

Distinction Doors achievementDistinction Doors recently celebrated the 3 millionth composite door leaving their manufacturing and distribution facility in Tankersley, Barnsley.  This milestone, comes off the back of the company recently dispatching their 10,000th painted door from their state of the art paint plant.

Andy Grogan, Distinction’s National Sales Manager, said, “This is a significant milestone for Distinction Doors and demonstrates just how popular our composite door is. All employees, both past and present, have played their part and of course this milestone would not have been achieved without our loyal customers.”

Today, industry research suggests one in four installed entrance doors is a Distinction door, an impressive accomplishment for the company responsible for first bringing the composite door to the UK market back in 2004. Since then, the composite door has gone from a social housing niche product to homeowner mainstream, with close to 50% of homeowners now opting for a composite door.

Whilst the past decade has witnessed many changes within the entrance door market, Distinction’s market-leading door has always remained at the cutting edge of technology. It is renowned for its authentic woodgrain surface that’s replicated on the slim glazing cassette as well as its exceptional durability and supreme thermal efficiency.

During this time, the company has invested heavily in its infrastructure and building a huge stockholding to support their customers, in turn building on their position as the UK’s leading composite door supplier.   Andy explains, “We have always been committed to investing in our business and 2016 will be no exception. We’ve already made a considerable investment to develop our warehouse capacity and further increase our impressive stockholding of door blanks, glazing cassettes and decorative glass units.

With such a compelling product it’s not surprising that Distinction Doors has achieved this significant milestone. And with continued business investment you can’t help but feel the next company milestone is not far away.
