Painted doors in five days

Doorco has reduced the lead times for painted doors from its UK facility, with one side painted doors now available in five days.

“Colour makes up around 60% of our sales at Doorco,” Jayne Sullivan, operations director at Doorco, said. “With this level of demand comes complexity, as an increasing palette of colours are required by our customers as quickly as possible.”

Therefore, Doorco invested in a Schubox from Schuberts, a purpose-built paint line.

“Both solvent and water-based substrates react well, so not only have we noticed significant improvements in quality, but the unique infra-red drying process has dramatically reduced drying times,” Jayne said.

“We no longer struggle with the bottle-neck that the painting process often causes and this has enabled us to speed up the painting process and therefore the time in which we can deliver to our customers. We can therefore now make the commitment to a reduced turnaround on painted doors – one sided painted doors are now available on a five-day turnaround, while double painted doors and stained doors can be delivered in just seven.”
