The move, scheduled for Spring/Summer 2018, will see the company relocate to larger premises in Wigan, Greater Manchester. The relocation comes as a consequence of the company’s continued growth, and will be, in fact, the fourth time the company, established in 2001, have had to move due to outgrowing their premises. Switching its expanding operation to a new ‘fit for purpose’ 17,000 square foot facility, ensures the company can progress with its business plan for further growth and development. As well as providing increased office space and a larger manufacturing facility, there’ll also be a training centre and state of the art showroom with actual working doors from their comprehensive range of industrial doors and shutters. On the forthcoming move, Alliance’ Managing Director John Hare comments: “This is fantastic news for Alliance and our customers. The much needed increase in capacity will improve efficiency and ensure continued fast lead times for our trade customers throughout the UK. From an operational perspective, we will now also have designated areas for the production of our sliding, folding doors, rapid roll doors and aluminium shutters, ensuring optimal efficiency. We are committed to providing our customers with products of the highest quality backed up by an unrivalled service. The move will enable us to take both to a new level.” Alliance would like to thank all of their customers, many of whom have been trade partners for many years, for their continued support.

Garador offers a full range of garage doors, including Up & Over, Sectional, Roller and Side Hinged garage doors. Expertly engineered, available in a selection of designs and colours, as well as being easy to fit and maintain, it is no wonder Garador’s garage doors are the UK’s market leader. In the last 3 years the company has invested over £2 million in production technology for its steel doors, with enhancements to its painting facilities and further upgrades to the manufacturing process for its Chevron, Salisbury and Sutton steel Up and Over doors. These developments will help to ensure a long-lasting garage door that can be delivered at a reasonable price. An important aspect of this investment is that the new production machinery is all based right here in the UK, at Garador’s state of the art factory in Somerset. On top of this, Garador also has its customer service and technical support functions based here in the UK. Garador’s Managing Director, Simon Hipgrave says: “We have a full-service operation based here in the UK, with customer service and technical functions to assist our customers. We want to continue to manufacture great products and part of that is investing for the long-term.” Simon continues: “These new investments ensure we remain one of the most modern garage door manufacturing facilities in Europe, producing an outstanding range of high quality, fully reliable products at good prices.” The new machinery and equipment has been fully tested and is currently in operation with steel garage doors already running off the production line.
