Just months after the move into much larger premises, fast growing composite door manufacturer, DOORCO has made further investments to improve efficiency, with the purchase of a new beam saw.
The £150,000 investment allows the company to increase volumes and reduce lead times for prepped door customers, as Managing Director, Dan Sullivan explains: “In a competitive sector such as the composite door market it is vital that we continue to stay ahead of the game, not just from a business point of view, but in order to allow our customers to do the same. We pride ourselves on the innovative and quality products we produce as a manufacturer, but the service we provide to our customers is also of paramount importance. We are very pleased, therefore to add the new beam saw to our facility in order to further streamline our processes on their behalf.
“The saw allows us to significantly reduce the time it takes to size the doors, bringing each individual process down from two minutes to 20 seconds. This, in turn, will increase our capacity from 1,700 to 3,500 prepped doors per month. The investment not only demonstrates our commitment to the prepping side of our business, but also provides customers with the benefit of increased volumes and potentially lower lead times on their orders. The saw will be installed and fully operational from the beginning of August, and we have further investments and improvements in the pipeline for the rest of the year.”
