DoorCo expands its UK operations with new facility in Doncaster

UK-based composite door giants DoorCo have now unveiled their plans to open a manufacturing factory in the industrial town of Doncaster, with the new facility now donning their name.  In their latest, and potentially biggest move yet, the UK’s leading innovators of composite doors, DoorCo, have now unveiled their plans to open a new manufacturing factory in Doncaster. Head of Operations, Mark Towers, discusses the new facility:

A Space to Create – “DoorCo is known for leading the way with innovation, so creating a space where we could manufacture new products right here in the UK felt like a natural next step for us. Our new facility in Doncaster, spanning across 20,000 ft² at present, is a space for us to create.  Doubling as both a manufacturing factory and R&D space, this new facility allows us to have a UK-based location to produce new products on a full-time basis whilst also testing new concepts and working on bespoke projects.”

The Home of a New Brand – “One of the most exciting parts of the new DoorCo Manufacturing space is that it will become the home of a new brand which is yet to be released. We’re the proud owners of ORiGINAL, GRiPCORE and FLiP but we knew there was an obvious opening for the addition of a new product and we’re in the final stages of bringing this to market now. Due to be in full production this Spring, with the entire operation taking place out of Doncaster, we’re excited to add this UK-made brand to our portfolio.”

An Opportunity to Recruit – Discussing the recruitment opportunities that this new facility has provided, Mark explains “One of the greatest parts of opening a new facility in a new location is the ability to be able to provide the area with job opportunities. 

“We’re proud to be one of Macclesfield’s largest employers, so it’s great to be able to now expand our reach into Doncaster. We’ve hired for a number of positions including Production Operatives and Management roles, and it’s exciting to have fresh new faces in the business to help us progress this new step in our journey.  Our HR team are working closely with our new team members to fully integrate them into the world of DoorCo and ensure they feel part of our core team, as any member of our Macclesfield office does.”

Commenting on the opening of the new space, DoorCo’s MD, Dan Sullivan, concludes: “We’re really pleased to see the Doncaster facility coming together now and so nearly ready to start production. DoorCo is passionate about innovation and having a space in the UK where we can research, develop, test and create is such a great next step for us. We’re excited to welcome the new team members who are helping us bring this to life and to see the new brand in production in the space very soon.”
