Northern Enterprise Awards 2021

53 | Northern Enterprise Awards 2021 Based in West Yorkshire, UK Doors Online manufactures high-quality aluminium doors. Some of its products include bifold doors, French doors, lift & slide and sliding patio doors. Additionally, UK Doors Online provides fixed frames and aluminium entrance doors using the Alutech BF73 system – renowned for its fitter-friendly qualities and versatility, selling to retail and trade. UK Doors Online was formed in July 2020, which has proved a challenging landscape for the industry, rocked by multiple lockdowns, material and staff shortages and supply chain issues. Despite this, UK Doors has beat its own sales records month-on-month, more than doubling turnover in two years. UK Doors initial foundation was created from several missing components within the aluminium manufacturing industry, such as excellent customer service, fast turnaround times, instant ordering and quotes and the highest quality products at affordable prices. The company believes in the benefits of shopping local and is proven as almost 95% of its suppliers are Yorkshire-based, such as hardware, glazing and integral blinds. Additionally, UK Doors offers free collection at its factory in West Yorkshire or delivery around the UK. Overall, the company often hears from its customers that they’re tired of being treated like just a number by other suppliers and are regularly let down by them on deliveries and customer service. However, UK Doors provides real human connections and reliable communication and is flexible to suit each customer, rather than a one size fits all approach. UK Doors keeps things simple and straightforward, offering excellent customer service and quality products that are perfect every time. Most of its business growth comes from word-of-mouth recommendations, proving that great service goes a long way, backed by 100% positive reviews on Trustpilot. Every customer is essential to the company and has assisted other businesses with their growth, marketing, and training by sharing best practices and knowledge. UK Doors aid with further businesses growth as it cares for and supports the industry. UK Doors recognises the potential within its team, the talented fabricators, and work with them Best Emerging Yorkshire Trade Business and Best Aluminium & Bi-Fold Door Manufacturer 2021 to use their skills to realise their full potential. Due to this, UK Doors has an in-house training programme to develop all staff to become quality, fully trained fabricators. Additionally, the company currently employs size people through the Government’s Kick Start scheme, a six-month training programme to help get young people at risk of long-term employment into work and learn new skills, potentially being offered full-time permanent jobs on completion. Furthermore, the company has been shortlisted for several prestigious industry awards, such as the National Fenestration awards and the G21 awards, in categories that include Best Fabricator, Aluminium Company and Bifolding Door Manufacturer, with winners due to be announced in November. Additionally, because of Covid-19, UK Doors has found new opportunities in garden rooms due to homeowners having to adapt their lifestyle to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. With many people working from home over the past 18 months and unable to go out socially, they have installed a garden room to function as either a home office or bar, among many other purposes. A set of bi-folding doors has been the perfect finishing touch to these structures, and UK Doors now supplies many leading garden room installers. UK Doors offers exceptional insulation values of down to 1.4u w/m2k and maximum weatherproofing. The aluminium doors are strong, durable and don’t rust or corrode as well as providing a wide range of colours, styles, sizes, and several panels, for a completely bespoke design. While its standard colour range is black, anthracite grey and white, or a dual colour combination of two – but it also has in-house painting facilities, which they have recently added to its operations to spray to any RAL colour. Additionally, its members selected its hardware personally due to its high- security features, making its doors some of the safest on the market. Looking to the future, UK Doors is excited to launch a new slimline window and slimline patio door, allowing the company to offer a full suite of home improvement products and tap into new markets and customer bases.
