The Spring Issue of Door Industry Journal is available online now!

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Spring 2023 issue of Door Industry Journal, the Voice of the UK Door and Gate Industry.

As I write, the sun is finally putting in an appearance and Easter is on the horizon. And with it comes the spring issue of the DIJ. So – before you snaffle that creme egg – let me tell you a bit about this edition:

If you subscribe to our print version, you will notice it’s in a different wrapper. That’s because we’ve gone green! Gone are the old polythene bags, in favour of a paper wrap that’s fully recyclable.

Inside you’ll still find all the latest news and views from across the sector. One piece that brought back memories for me is Garador’s 75th-anniversary story on page 38

Back in the early 1980s, I worked as a Garador Area Manager, covering the southeast. Happy days, but sadly brought to an end in 1985 when Westland, the firm’s then owner, sold it off to Catnic Components during a time later known as the Westland Affair.

Plenty more inside to keep you going. Here are a few highlights:

  • Rowland Door Services celebrates its 40th anniversary (page 8)
  • Ken Price, MD of the Automatic Door Suppliers Association, tells us why we are ‘better together’ (page 10)
  • Another anniversary - Doorfit is celebrating 70 years in the business (page 20)
  • What a day in the life looks like for Stuart Shaw - National Field Sales Manager at Hörmann UK (page 28)
  • Roller door specialist Trojon announces a big new product launch (page 42)
  • A flexible aluminium dock shelter for universal use has arrived, courtesy of mydocking (page 66)
  • A new product ordering system is improving life for HorizAL customers (page 80)
  • Sentry Doors announces the acquisition of E. & S.W. Knowles (page 102)
  • The dhf take on the government’s latest fire safety reform (page 112)
  • Scott Copeland, Category Manager at IronmongeryDirect, takes us through some of the latest door handle options (page 118)

I hope you enjoy both the magazine and your Easter break. I’ll be back before you know it with the DIJ summer issue.
