The Faroe Islands have become the latest destination for the expanding export department at Hurst Plastics.
Hurst dispatched dozens of door panels to a distributor on the Danish group of islands, which are more than 650 miles away from the company’s headquarters in Kingston-upon-Hull. Demand for Hurst’s doors was said to be so high on the islands, that the customer immediately placed an order for a second shipment.
Tony Appleyard, Hurst Plastics’ export sales development manager, said: “Door panels may be a maturing product but there’s still plenty of demand for them, both in the UK and overseas. We supplied a number of different door panel and glass designs to the islands and, judging by how quickly they’ve been snapped up, they have been a big hit with the locals!”
Hurst’s dedicated export team distributes the company’s Definitive Collection of decorative door panels to more than 20 countries around the globe, including Australia, the Middle East, and the Bahamas. The Definitive Collection includes a wide choice of door and glass designs, many of which are exclusive to Hurst. It also features the Modern Collection of contemporary styled continental door panels in coloured, white or woodgrain PVC-U.
