According to Doorco, one of its key priorities is stock, and the composite door supplier adds that even throughout lockdown, it continued to receive shipments from Doorco Korea resulting in ‘bumper levels’ of composite door slabs ready for distribution or manufacturing.
“As a privately-owned company with a dedicated overseas partner, Doorco is in control of stock levels and it has always been our key priority to make sure we are well stocked to meet our customer demands,” said Dan Sullivan, Doorco’s MD. “It was also fortunate that Doorco Korea was largely unaffected by the Coronavirus pandemic. This meant that manufacturing of our door slabs continued, and in turn, deliveries were kept on schedule, even though we had shut down our manufacturing facilities in the UK. The senior management team remained on hand to receive delivery which has resulted in bolstered levels of stock.
“Doorco has been operating on a ‘just in time’ service basis for some time, meaning we also hold good levels of accessories, glass and glazing cassettes too,” continued Dan. “We offer fast lead times on stock items, such as next day delivery on slabs, prepped slabs from three days and painted slabs or prepped doors from five days. We’ve been back in business since 4 May and thanks to the hard work of our team, we are settled in to the ‘new normal’ of social distancing and strict health and safety measures to ensure our employees remain safe and well and ready to deliver. We are closely monitoring staff levels against orders to ensure we can meet demand, and as demand grows our full team are on standby to return to work.
“Doorco offers one of the widest ranges of door designs and colours in the UK, from traditional woodgrain slabs such as our 6/4 panel Combi (that creates seven styles from one blank), to a modern Monza II with its contemporary linear etched detailing, to the perfect aluminium/flush casement partner LINKS.
“We want to get the industry moving and are prepared to help everyone to get back to work,” he concluded. “So, if you are experiencing any issues with supplies of slab or prepped doors, get in touch with Doorco today to discuss your requirements.”
