Distinction Doors, the UK’s largest GRP composite door supplier, is celebrating 10 years in business. Drew Wright, founder and now Chairman of Distinction Doors, said, “It is a great achievement for our company to have reached this significant milestone. Everyone who has worked at the company in the past or who works for us today has played a part in our company’s success and now is a good opportunity to thank them for their efforts. We should also thank our customers past and present because we could not have achieved anything without them.”
Distinction Doors was one of the first companies to bring the composite door to the UK market back in 2004. Since then, the composite door has gone from a social housing niche product to homeowner mainstream. According to recent industry research, the composite door continues to achieve dominance in the market place with 40% of homeowners now opting for this type of door for their homes.
Throughout the last decade, Drew and his team have consistently focused on delivering the best products and service to the growing market. Today, through continual development, their market-leading Nan Ya slab remains at the cutting edge. Not only does it offer stunning aesthetics giving it a truly authentic grained appearance, it also offers some impressive performance benefits too.
It’s the most thermally efficient door on the market – in tests at the University of Salford’s Energy House it was proved to be 19% more thermally efficient than its rival 48mm solid timber core composite door.
From a standing start back in 2004, Distinction have sold over two million door slabs which speaks volumes about the quality that’s on offer.
With continued investment being made in all areas of the business, Distinction Doors has no plans to slow down. Drew explains, “We’ve recently made big investments in our customer service, from launching a new website that’s focused on bringing in more leads for our customers to extending stock availability in all areas from glass to blank cassettes. We’ve also invested £185,000 in our new paint plant to improve quality, lead times and cost in this area. In terms of product range we’ve just launched our 70mm door and the One Lite bi-fold door, both of which offer significant benefits for installers looking to expand their portfolio.”
The investment and development made by the company is a clear indication of the company’s desire to help their customers take a larger slice of market share and ensure Distinction Doors have the building blocks in place for the next 10 years.
