Replacement Door Within 48 hours, Despite The Weather

IDE’s manufacturing engineers and team of fitters never give up on exceeding customer expectations. One of our regular valued customers; TATA Salt, had a busted door and it needed replacing. Our surveyors were quickly on the scene to ensure TATA salt could maintain their production line and prevent valuable materials from being ruined by the bad weather.

Within 24 hours we had surveyors go out to measure the door and a replacement door was manufactured straight from our factory. Disaster struck the following day with further flash floods in some parts of the UK. Our fitters were wading through rivers to get to the TATA site.
Following the battle with the river én route to TATA the damaged door was quickly replaced with a new electronically operated roller shutter door.

As a result, TATA could get back to their busy schedule.

Nassau Completes Factory Refit For UPS

UK Group company Nassau Industrial Doors have just completed the supply and installation of 81no Overhead sectional doors of which 9 were electrically operated with traffic light systems. The project also included the installation of dock shelters, and is yet another example of the close collaboration between UPS and Nassau.

The project began in December and all installation phases were quick and efficient enabling UPS to begin using the doors as soon as they were installed.

The contract was won by Nassau’s own Terry Salmon and Nigel Forster who assisted in the design, price and operation of the doors so that the new installation increases the warehouse’s efficiency. Nassau have not only provided the doors on a number of UPS sites, but also provide a nationwide 24 hours emergency service for all UPS distribution centres.

Exciting Times Ahead For Dover Roller Shutters Following Rebrand

February 2018 saw the re-branding of UK Group Company Dover Vanguard.

The business will now operate under the title Dover Roller Shutters, a name that has been in existence since 1954 and which is synonymous and renowned for quality and service.

This re-brand also coincides with the introduction of two new products that Dover Roller Shutters are rolling out into the UK market.

The WL190 wide lath door has already found success within the US market via AMGroup Company Diamond Roll-Up Door Inc. The product is used widely on vehicle trailers and its steel construction provides a robust hard-wearing durable product that is becoming increasingly popular.

The CP380 Evolution door is a 100% recyclable steel composite panel sectional door, again mainly used in the truck and trailer industry. Expectations are that this product will gradually replace the timber sectional doors commonly used in the UK trailer market, and orders are already arriving even though the manufacturing of the product will only start next month. Dover Roller Shutters is investing in a comprehensive range of new machinery to update the existing manufacturing plant, which includes state of the art CNC machinery, mandrel track bending machines, spot welding equipment and a new 6 metre guillotine.
