Manufacturing milestone

Wednesday 3 December will see Origin manufacture its 100,000th aluminium bi-folding door.

,The British manufacturer of bespoke bi-fold doors, windows and made-to-measure blinds, says it will produce its 100,000th bi-fold door at 11.24am precisely! According to Origin, this is equivalent to manufacturing enough doors to fill 22 football pitches, when laid flat, since opening its doors in High Wycombe.

,Neil Ginger, CEO of Origin, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating such a significant milestone to end what has already been a successful year for Origin, with the launch of the new Origin window and opening operations in America and Germany. We’ve had a fantastic year and this is the icing on the cake! The team will be celebrating in the factory to mark the occasion.”

,Origin says its 100,000 bi-fold doors are equivalent to:

,• The height of 682 Shard skyscrapers
,• A width to span the circumference of the London Eye 213 times
,• The number of people that visit Glastonbury each year
,• The weight of 943 London double decker buses
,• Five times the length of the White Cliffs of Dover
,• 156 times the height of Ben Nevis
,• Commonwealth Gold medallist and Origin athlete, Fran Halsall, would take more than 13 hours to swim the 90,000m width of all the doors
