The UK is Leading The Way For British Manufacturing

The UK is Leading The Way For British Manufacturing

A recent report has revealed that the UK is now one of the cheapest manufacturing locations in the western hemisphere.

Findings by Boston Consulting Group, one of the world's top consultancies, claims that Britain has improved its position over the past decade in terms of the Eurozone, Eastern Europe and Asia.

The UK is now one of the most cost-effective places for manufacturing. British factories are producing 8% less than they were making at the end of 2000 however; output in the services sector as well as in the overall economy is the highest it has ever been.

Here at Select Garage Doors, we have been making and selling our garage doors since 2000 and we're very proud of it. Our staff numbers have doubled since we started 14 years ago and the company is growing from strength to strength every year.

Dave Moores, a Director of Select Garage Doors, said:

"We are proud of the company and to be able to give something back to the British manufacturing sector. Over half of the current Select team began working in the industry between 20 and 30 years ago so the level of skills we have is extensive. It's great to hear that as a nation, Britain is firmly back on the map as a leader in high-quality manufacturing."

Why do we manufacture in-house and not outsource abroad?

Many people will ask why we manufacture our products here in the UK and not abroad. Simply put, yes some door parts originate overseas but we make the doors from scratch in-house so we then have the flexibility to make bespoke products for you.

We can take the raw steel material and then cut and form it, and assemble and powder coat it as necessary for each order. This means we can create a one-of-a-kind, made to measure garage door for your exact measurements and needs.

Better still, by manufacturing the doors ourselves it allows us to do it quickly and efficiently. We don't have to wait around for a third party, delivery stocks or shipping times so you get your brand new purchase promptly.

But what does this mean for customers?

Fundamentally, you get a better quality of customer service. We can keep tight control on costs and time availability giving all customers the best possible price. This helps us to stay competitive and keep delivering high quality, bespoke garage doors over and over.

What does the process entail?

  1. An order comes in from one of our garage door specialist customers.
  2. This is then processed and checked and any queries are discussed and approved.
  3. The order then goes to our press section where the door skins are cut to size and formed into the required design.
  4. Then our assembly department makes the door panel.
  5. The door is then powder coated with the matching frame.
  6. Next, the colour finish is then baked on.
  7. Finally, our finishing division assembles the finished door with the frame and operating gear and a quality check is undergone to ensure all products meet high standards.
  8. And we're off! Your door is then ready for transport.

All this will normally take just 2-3 weeks and after all the hard work you will have a polished bespoke garage door that will make your house a home and increase your garage safety.
