Stockton based, Made for Trade has seen a fantastic up-turn in the sales of their bi-folding door sets since partnering with Debar just over a year ago.

Bradley Guant, Made for Trade Managing Director commented, “We wanted to add more products to our portfolio. Manufacturing roofing systems meant we had the skills within our business to take on other complex manufacturing processes, so we decided to offer bi-folding door sets”

“Graham Fawthrop and his team at Debar offered more than just the supply of hardware for the doors, they assisted at every learning curve we experienced, this along with the fact their products are designed in accordance to operate perfectly with the Smart Visiofold aluminium bi-fold door system, aided us with our production.”

We will continue to support Made for Trade and all our other customers with new innovation, development of our existing products and technical assistance.”
