Large scale investment

ODL Europe has invested in its infrastructure to help support its growth strategy in 2021 and beyond.

Nathan Barr, managing director of ODL Europe, said: “As a business, we focus on being a valuable partner for our customers. The investments we are making now will enhance our ability to do this.”

The first investment is a new 1,200 tonne injection moulding machine, which will come online during Q2 and will enable the company to run its 764 contemporary door frames in-house. The machine will also increase its capacity to run larger tools that are currently located in other ODL facilities, and will further enhance manufacturing efficiencies.

ODL has also invested in a new order processing system from Oracle that will improve efficiencies, and has appointed four new senior personnel.

The company will launch three new composite doors into the market during 2021: the Guardsman Fire Door is the result of a six-figure R&D investment; the Moderne door taps into the trend for contemporary door design; and the Deco door is a cottage door design that gives the sophisticated heritage styling.
