Triple Challenge for New MD


It’s a triple crown for Steve Marshall who has not only taken over as Managing Director of Strand Hardware, but also its two sister companies – Strand Technologies and AliMet Fabrications.

The industry stalwart has taken the helm of the three Midlands companies following a 24-year career at GEZE UK where, for the past two years he served as Operations Director, following roles in the service and commercial teams.

However, his new challenge has taken him full circle – he began his career as an estimator for an 
aluminium door and window fabrication company (James Gibbons) before moving into the world of automatics (Newman Tonks followed by Horton Automatics).

Steve’s appointment is a significant step change for Strand Hardware and demonstrates a resounding belief in his abilities. It will be the first time that the company has seen day-to-day operations managed by someone outside the family-run firm. 

Strand was founded by Jonathan Franks in 1991 and his daughter, Catherine, took on the role of Managing Director in 2005. She will continue to help steer the ship in her new role as Chair of Strand Hardware.
Said Steve: “It is such an exciting challenge. They are three fairly different companies which at the same time complement each other. My work at GEZE UK has given me a background in door hardware, albeit that Strand Hardware has a different range of specialist products, but I know a lot of people in the industry that are customers of Strand already.
“GEZE also distributed iContact which is a pivotal product within the Strand Technologies range.   Although a relatively new company, Strand Technologies is going from strength to strength and diversifying into many new markets outside the door industry.
“I began my career with a door and window fabrications company, so AliMet’s business is not unknown to me either. All three are really, really exciting, and I'm looking forward to working with the teams, helping them develop and achieve further growth.”
He says he intends to spend his first 100 days ‘learning and planning’ - getting to know the teams, existing customers, market segments and identify opportunities for growth, development and diversification.

Steve will be supported at Strand Hardware by Sales Director Craig Fox and General Manager Jo Wallis in managing the day-to-day business operations.

Catherine Franks is to focus on special projects, strategy and investments. She said she felt certain that Strand Hardware and its sister companies were in “a safe pair of hands”.
“I would not move aside, if it were not for the certainty that Steve is absolutely the right person for the job. Managing three companies is not easy, each has its own unique demands but Steve has huge amounts of experience working within complex working environments and to time-sensitive deadlines. I feel confident that he will be able to support all three companies and help them grow.”

Rhino Doors works night shift due to increased demand


The UK’s leading manufacturer of high-performance engineered doors is working overtime to meet increased demand from clients before the end of the financial year (March 2022).

Rhino Doors, which has manufacturing bases in South Wales and Lancashire, has been producing its bespoke industrial doors for over 25 years, working on projects for the likes of Transport for London and the Ministry of Defence.

This year saw Rhino commence work on two projects for Transport for London, supplying bespoke fire doors for both the Northern Line Link at Moorgate Station and the Bank Station Capacity Upgrade Project.

Engineers on-site at the organisation’s Port Talbot base are preparing to implement nightshift working patterns for the final quarter of the year to meet delivery deadlines, with several projects ongoing for clients in the key sectors of transport and defence.
“After a successful year marked by new client wins and considerable growth, we’re rounding off the financial year with all hands on deck to meet extraordinary demand,” said Stuart Lawrence, managing director of Rhino Engineering Group.
“Nightshift working is a system we have successfully implemented at Rhino in the past, allowing us to significantly increase output when required.
“It’s very encouraging to see the business in such a strong position as we enter the final quarter of the financial year,” he added. “I’m confident that FY 2023 will be a successful year for both Rhino Doors and the wider group, as we continue to broaden our scope while providing high-quality solutions to our growing list of clients.”
Rhino Doors’ busy close to the financial year is preceded by a series of new projects commenced, including work on a major North American rail tunnel, and the creation of new subsidiary organisations specialising in installation services and hydrogen explosion relief products.

The success of the Rhino Engineering Group in 2021 is a positive sign for UK manufacturing, as well as the local economies of North West England and South Wales, which the company operates from.

To find out more about Rhino Doors and how it supports businesses spanning the sectors of transport, defence and critical national infrastructure, please visit www.rhinodoors.com

Tentoma launches new Door Packaging Line providing 100% Sealed Packaging

Using RoRo StretchPack® the door is packed into a tubular stretch film.
The tubular film is sealed in both ends during the packaging to ensure
100% sealing. Packaging and sealing are done in one operation.

It is essential that door packaging is 100% sealed, to protect the doors from losing attractiveness and value before they reach end-users. 

For that reason, Tentoma launches a full RoRo StretchPack® packaging line for 6-sided sealed door packaging. The new packaging line includes the following functionalities dedicated to the door manufacturing industry:

  • The door is lifted for mounting of corner protection
  • The door is centred on the infeed conveyor
  • The door size is measured (width x height)
  • The door is packed and sealed in one operation


Using RoRo StretchPack®, the door is packed in a tubular stretch film. It provides a 6-sided packaging, with a short 100% waterproof sealing in each end. It protects the door against the penetration of dirt and moisture during storage and transportation.

Jane Tønder, Head of Sales at Tentoma, who has developed the RoRo StretchPack® technology says:
“We have seen more door manufacturers shifting to use RoRo StretchPack® for packaging.” 

She continues: 

” That is the reason why we have developed this complete packaging line to the door manufacturing industry. It can be installed as a standalone solution or as an inline solution in a fully automated production line. The final configuration will of course always be based on customers’ requirements”.

The RoRo StretchPack® technology is based on the proven vertical stretch hood packaging of e.g. pallet. Tentoma has developed the technology further, so RoRo StretchPack® is able to perform a horizontal 6-sided sealed packaging in just one operation. RoRo StretchPack® is very suitable for packaging large goods like doors, tabletops, and similar.

The new RoRo StretchPack® door packaging line. The packaging line can
be equipped with more film roll stations to different door sizes and brandings.
Depending on thickness each roll can contain up to 6 km film.

A film saving packaging solution

RoRo StretchPack® is single layer packaging, in contrast, to e.g. orbital wrapping. The stretch film gives a tight packaging, where the film fits close to the door. Together, these properties prevent excessive use of film. When customers shift to RoRo StretchPack®, they typically see reductions in film consumption between 25-60% compared to conventional packaging methods.

Remove heat shrink from the packaging line

RoRo StretchPack® is a cold packaging process, which means that you can remove any heat shrink ovens from the packaging line. Thereby you reduce your energy consumption significantly. In contrast to heat shrink packaging, RoRo StretchPack® performed high repeatability and uniform packaging. It also ensures that branding printed on the stretch film is exposed nice and uniform on the packaging.

Benefits of RoRo StretchPack®
  • 100% sealed and waterproof packaging
  • Packaging and sealing in one operation
  • Film savings up to 60%
  • Energy saving up to 90% - by removing heat shrink
  • Tight, smooth, and nice packaging
  • Uniformed packaging suitable for branding

It’s Good to Share


GEZE UK has made donations to three local charities as part of their focus on Corporate Social Responsibility. 

A total of £1,820.00 was shared between St Giles Hospice, Lichfield Foodbank and the Pathway Project – a charity that supports adults, young people and children who are experiencing or affected by domestic abuse. All of them are based in Lichfield not far from GEZE UK’s head office.

The automatic door and window control company donated the money they received from Staffordshire County Council for carrying out lateral flow tests on staff during the Covid pandemic. Rather than keep the money it was decided to donate it to good causes or charities that can help people. 

Rachel Boxall, Finance Director for GEZE UK said:
“We are delighted to be able to support these local charities, especially during these difficult times. We also encourage and support our colleagues in their fundraising activities.” 
A different director made a presentation to each of the charities; Rachel presented a cheque to St Giles Hospice, Service Director Adam Presdee to the Pathway Project and MD Kaz Spiewakowski presented the cheque to the Foodbank.

GEZE UK’s Corporate Social Responsibility policy states that the company aims to create a positive impact in society and improve people’s lives wherever possible. The company supports local communities and encourages employees to become involved in local initiatives and fundraising events.

UAP takes the risk out of Selecting Fire-Rated Ironmongery with New Range and POS


UAP Ltd, the UK’s foremost independent supplier of ironmongery products and door locking systems, has launched a complete range of Firemongery fire door products designed to help customers select the right certified solutions in three easy steps.

Firemongery is the UAP brand that specialises in fully-tested and certified ironmongery and locking products for use in compliant fire door installation. The new range is designed specifically for builder’s merchants, trade counters and wholesalers as a complete solution, with a fully-stocked POS (point of sale) unit. The unit features a unique ‘Pack Selector’ decision tree, providing customers with all the information they need to select and purchase the right items, and UAP has also created an interactive Pack Selector tool for the range on the company’s website. Restocking across the range is available with next day delivery.

David Jennings, CEO of UAP Ltd explains: 
“We have designed this Firemongery range specifically for builder’s merchants and trader counters, enabling them to provide both the products and guidance their customers need to take the risk out of selecting fire-rated ironmongery with our innovative Pack Selector.
“Whether a builder is installing fire doors across several properties or a homeowner is upgrading a single door, ensuring that the ironmongery meets both the relevant compliance requirements and the practical needs of the occupier is very important.
“This range has been developed as a pick-up-and-go solution for builder’s merchant environments, with right first time product selection. The accompanying POS is both eye-catching and informative to help inform customers and attract sales.”

Comprising robust, fully tested products selected by UAP’s experts, the Firemongery range includes eight different packs, six of which are boxed with the remaining two in Euro Card/polybag packaging. The compact, easy-to-assemble POS display unit has been designed to accommodate four units of each pack and UAP is offering a fully stocked POS for almost half the retail value of the products, with informative leaflets and a counter-top display unit included in the price.

David Jennings continues: 
“Both professional tradespeople and DIYers are extremely nervous about selecting the right fire rated products so there is a real opportunity for builder’s merchants and trade counters to help them select the right products and have confidence in their choices with our new point of sale and Pack selector approach.
“We have designed the Firemongery POS to be both practical and informative. With a mixture of shelves, hooks and a leaflet dispenser, everything fits neatly on the robust unit. Meanwhile, the question and answer Pack Selector means that product selection is straightforward. And, of course, the Firemongery products offer the quality, value and compliance customers expect from a UAP brand.”

Established in 2006, UAP is a leading supplier of hardware and locking systems based in Manchester. A £22 million + company with an 80-strong team, the company operates across six brands: Fullex, Locking Systems, Intelligent Hardware (including Firemongery), TradeLocks (including e-commerce), all falling within the UAP Corporate umbrella.

With a portfolio spanning 6000 SKUs, UAP has a UK stockholding of around £9mm at any given time, leveraging the company’s 100,000ft² of warehousing capacity.

The company holds a wide range of industry accreditations and affiliations and is a member of the Good Business Charter (GBC), which ensures that companies operate ethically and treat their staff and supply chain fairly. UAP became a cooperative in 2019, providing all members of staff with a stake in the business.

You’re Hired – ADSA Apprentice Achieves Success


From ASDA to ADSA – a former supermarket sales assistant has checked out a new career and bagged a permanent role with the Automatic Door Suppliers Association having successfully completed a two-year apprenticeship.
 
Beth Rutherford, aged 21, from Tamworth, in Staffordshire, has been offered a permanent job with ADSA as a Training and Education Co-ordinator having completed a Highfield Level Two Diploma in Business Administration.
 
ADSA opened doors for Beth when she was appointed as trainee administrator at its head office in December 2019. As a leading exponent of apprenticeships, the association supported Beth to pursue her career aspirations – facilitating an apprenticeship through South Staffordshire College - providing academic learning with paid employment and on-the-job learning.

Joining ADSA meant she also crossed the threshold of a family business. Beth’s father, Steve has also worked in the entrance solutions industry for over 20 years and is now spearheading the Powered Pedestrian Door Technician Apprenticeship as the Course Practitioner at South Staffs College
 
Ken Price, Managing Director of ADSA, said that he was pleased to welcome Beth as a permanent member of the team.
“Beth has thrived during her time with us. Her confidence has increased and she is now extremely proficient. She has developed a real understanding of our members training needs and efficiently helps administer card renewals, NVQ registrations and ADSA standards training cards and certification.
“In addition, Beth has taken on responsibility for our social media engagement and has helped grow our LinkedIn presence to 1800 followers. She is fast becoming a key member of the team and we are delighted to offer her a permanent role.”
 
Much of Beth’s apprenticeship coincided with the COVID pandemic which saw learning and assessment having to be undertaken a little differently. The emphasis on the learner to evidence their understanding and practical application key units within the programme meant that the demands were “intensive”, according to Beth.
 
She added: “I am thrilled to be offered this wonderful opportunity. ADSA is such a progressive organisation which is constantly introducing new initiatives to professionalise our industry and is keen to embrace new ways of doing things. This means that there is always something new to learn, which in turn, makes the job so enjoyable. “

The Automatic Door Association (ADSA) was formed in 1985 to establish quality and safety standards for the automatic door industry. It developed the first industry code of practice which covered safety aspects of automatic doors for pedestrian use. This subsequently formed the basis of BS 7036: 1988, a code of practice for the provision and installation of safety devices for automatic, power-operated pedestrian door systems. 

Its membership includes manufacturers, suppliers, installers and service providers of automatic doors – from global companies to sole traders. ADSA member organisations supply more than 75% of the UK market.
