Looking forward to 2024
By Dan Sullivan, managing director, DoorCo.
It’s that time again when businesses look back over the previous 12 months and plan ahead for the new year.
As the UK’s leading composite door innovator, having already updated our customers, we want to share our plans with the broader market to help signal the direction of travel in 2024.
During 2023 we invested significantly at DoorCo, increased our workforce, purchased lots of new equipment including tooling for a new Original door design, a second beam saw, two more CNC machines and a third paint booth.
These investments have allowed us to significantly increase our production capacity in Macclesfield and reduce lead-times even further. We have also ordered a new production line for a brand-new product launching in April 2024.
January 2024 will mark the start of a revolutionary year where DoorCo will continue to support our loyal and passionate customers and maintain our position as the brand that offers one the broadest and most innovative door product and service ranges.
However, we do realise the pressures everyone is facing with high interest rates, continuing inflation, and turmoil in the energy markets, and because of this DoorCo will not increase our prices in January. We will review this position in May, based on the cost-of-living wage increase, and any further savings we can make in the supply chain.
We will keep the market up to date, but for now, we hope 2023 finishes strong for our markets, and that DoorCo’s new products and innovations make for a fresh and prosperous start to 2024.
