Corporate Social Responsibility

As a designer and manufacturer of industrial doors, we understand that the running of our business has an impact on our place of work, our communities, and the wider environments in which we operate. Due to the intensive nature of our work, we aim to ensure that continued efforts are made to improve the way we run our business, and that we strive to make a positive difference in the areas that we can.

Any projects we undertake require us to work as ethically as possible, placing our social responsibility at the very forefront of our approach. We endeavour to sustain a business that is both commercially successful and respected in its ethical standing by all stakeholders, including customers, clients, investors, regulators, suppliers, and the wider community. 

We embrace the role our business plays, on a day-to-day basis, in contributing to a better society for all. 

This strategy document details the work we have undertaken to prioritise both people and planet and will link to relevant documents containing additional information on our initiatives.
