New production manager

ODL Europe has appointed Stephen Porter as production manager to head up its composite door operations for the Bootle-based business.

Stephen, who has previously held senior operational roles within the industry, is ideally placed to head up the growing composite door facilities and help support the company’s ambitious growth strategy, the company said.

“The company has a great ethos and ambitious growth plans,” Stephen said. “Having worked previously for one of their customers, I have first-hand experience of the quality and pedigree of their Capstone composite door slab and the market-leading properties it offers fabricators and installers.”

Stephen will oversee all composite door operations which includes heading up the company’s in-house composite door prepping facility. Launched in April 2019, the door prepping facility follows a six-figure investment and delivers a comprehensive door prepping service for ODL Europe’s customers.

Nathan Barr, managing director at ODL Europe, said: “Stephen’s experience and commitment will ensure we maintain our focus and deliver high standards throughout our door operation.”
