New Production Manager brings Automotive Industry expertise to High Speed Doors Manufacturer

John Rafferty, Production Manager
at Hart Door Systems
Hart Door Systems has appointed John Rafferty, an experienced production manager, to strengthen manufacturing processes.

The company, based in Newcastle, is a long-established and pioneering designer and manufacturer of commercial and industrial doors.

John Rafferty has been appointed to the role of Production Manager to enhance the company’s manufacturing processes.

Having worked previously in similar roles at Unipres, NSK Europe and ADM Pressings Ltd, John has a wealth of experience of managing and monitoring processes and using this to identify efficiencies in manufacturing operations.

In his new role with Hart Door Systems, John will be tasked with supporting the company in enhancing its already well-established quality control and standardisation methods.

John Rafferty, Production Manager at Hart Door Systems commented: 
“After more than 20 years of working largely in the automotive sector, I’m looking forward to joining Hart Door Systems and applying my knowledge to its bespoke manufacturing processes.
“I was drawn to the company because it is family-run, has a well-established reputation for innovation and a commitment to market leading quality.
“Employing the SQCDM model (safety, quality, cost, delivery, morale and people) in my approach, I look forward to supporting the team as we continue to navigate through the changes that have come about in response to Covid-19.”
The company, which has been operational throughout the Covid-19 lockdown supporting customers in key sectors, has already implemented a number of new manufacturing processes to ensure the safety of its workers, such as morning and afternoon shift teams and tighter cleaning regimes.

Nick Hart, Managing Director at Hart Door Systems added: 
“We are delighted with John’s appointment and his experience in working in fast moving manufacturing operations and driving efficiencies will have great benefit as we look to scale up and continue with our export operations.”
The company has recently won a number of multi-door orders for export. These include providing the Hart Door Systems’ high-speed Speedor Storms and swing gates for Hitachi Zosen Inova in Moscow, Russia. The doors will be installed on a major Energy from Waste plant. 

In addition, the company has secured a large order for fire shutters for a Beumer Group contract at Kuwait Airport and an order for shutters for both the Hong Kong Central Government Office and the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

Designed and made in Britain, Hart Doors Systems’ commercial and industrial doors are used across the globe, and the company works hand-in-hand with customers to ensure effective and efficient installation and operation – whatever environment its door systems are applied to.
