The New Kids on The Block - UK Doors (Midlands) Ltd

Black Country 
based roller garage door and continental shutter trade supplier, UK Doors (Midlands) Limited, opened the doors of their new 10,000 sq. ft. production facility at the beginning of January 2021, and are already exceeding expectations.
Led by Managing Director Simon Perks, who boasts 26 years of experience in the door industry, most of these dedicated to developing and managing the manufacture and distribution of Roller Garage Doors & Roller Shutters. 

Alongside Simon are long-standing and trusted colleagues, Production Manager Steve Brough and Technical Manager Ian Wallace, both of whom have also surpassed over 25 years in the industry.

Whilst the company may be in its infancy, the team behind it are past masters. Giving valuable support from the wings are two familiar faces from the Industry - Directors Steve Hudson of JD UK/Alutech Systems and Andrew Nurse of Southern Grille and Gate.
Being incorporated into an already successful group, the company is able to draw upon a wealth of experience and a network of customers and suppliers.

Launching in the year of the pandemic is definitely a challenging and potentially risky feat. However, like many home improvement products, the Roller Garage Door saw an unprecedented boom in sales, and with the message from the government to stay at home, the trend has continued into 2021 and hopefully beyond.

This increase in demand has created a headache for manufacturers, many have struggled to cope with the sheer volume of the additional work, coupled with problems importing stock from overseas and lead times have suffered as a consequence, with some manufacturers taking 3 months to produce and deliver a standard specification door.
This, however, is not the case at UK Doors Midlands. The process of ordering, producing, and delivering a door has been meticulously thought out to ensure minimal delays, and together with a supporting cast of companies within their group, and a strong relationship with suppliers built up over many years, lead times do not exceed 3 weeks, even for the more unusual specifications and colours.

Location is a benefit too - being located in the heart of the country (Tipton, West Midlands) helpfully surrounded by a network of motorways, delivery to all four corners of the country is possible, via a fleet of dedicated vehicles.
The modern and spacious building that houses UK Doors Midlands is arguably one of the most impressive in the industry and enforces the ethos of a well organised 21st Century company. The 10,000 sq. ft production facility allows for seamless expansion, a space capable of producing over 150 doors per week.

Brand awareness is at the forefront of the company’s thinking, and with this in mind, they have created a range of doors, under the banner “Vertic-al” - a fusion of the vertical motion of a roller door and the aluminium construction of the profiles that they are produced from.

Within this range are the “Classic 77mm”, the brand leading roller garage door, the “Compact 52mm” for garage openings with reduced headroom, and the “Micro 44mm” continental roller shutters for window and door security. 

The Vertic-al roller garage doors are inclusive of the industry-leading Somfy Rollixo RTS remote control system and wireless optical safety edge technology, and the option of either an Ellard or Somfy tubular motor drive, all of which come with a standard 5-year manufacturers’ warranty.
They also stock the most comprehensive range of colours and finishes within the trade, boasting over 40 different colours, with colour matching frames as standard. They also stock an array of Somfy smart home devices to accompany the doors. All their doors are fully compliant to the current legislation.

Managing Director, Simon Perks says: 
“Our approach at UK Doors (Midlands) Ltd is to think big, to develop a brand leading range of products, and be at the forefront of design and innovation. We are fortunate to have a highly motivated, friendly, and ambitious team, with bags of experience.
“We ensure our customers are supplied with doors of unquestionable quality, whilst maintaining sensible lead times, and a competitive pricing structure, to give them every opportunity to secure the order and give them piece of mind to look back on the final outcome with pride”.
