Aluminium door specialist, Dutemänn, has reported a 30% year on year increase in turnover in the first half of 2014.
,Set up in 2010 as a specialist supplier of Schüco aluminium bi-fold doors, Dutemänn doubled its turnover last year on the back of increased demand and the expansion of its core product offering. This included the addition of Dutemänn Glide, the manufacturer’s aluminium patio door, and the introduction of a range of contemporary aluminium entrance doors and panels – Dutemänn Haus.
,With a UK wide distribution, Martin James, managing director, Dutemänn, said that the company remained on target to achieve its goal of 30% growth at the year’s end.
,He said: “We have had an excellent year to date, achieving sustainable and most importantly manageable growth.
,“We started out as a specialist supplier of bi-fold doors and that remains our core business. We’re now manufacturing more than 120 panels or 40 three-panel bi-fold doors each week.
,”Glide, our patio door is performing well, while Haus, our aluminium entrance door, which we launched at the FIT Show last year, has also generated stacks of interest – it seems to be something that the industry just gets.”
,Martin continued: “The most important thing is that we have sustained quality and our reputation for service.
,“That’s always been our strategy – we’re a niche manufacturer so by definition we have to be good at what we do because we rely on repeat business. We understand that it has to be right for our customers to get paid and we do everything we can to make sure that that happens by checking and then checking again at each and every stage of the manufacturing process. Our product quality is genuinely second to none and our customers have to expect it.”
