The range was launched back in 2017 and comprises four ranges of tube motors to suit every application. In addition, the firm offers a range of in-line/fire shutter motors, and a range of direct drive operators that encompass the long established M-Tech range of industrial operators, from 140nm to 1400nm - in both mechanical and digital electronic options - and high speed door motors from HSD specialists Ditec. As an accompaniment, NVM also sells a 3 phase control panel with an array of built- in functions as standard, including manual switch, safety edge, photocell, auto-return and remote control. All panels and motors are supplied pre-wired and pre-plugged to help installers. “The decision was made in 2017 that we – as the UK’s largest supplier of industrial door components – should have motors as part of our range. It’s what our customers were looking for, and responding to customer demand has always been a key part of our business. At the time, our major concern was offering a quality product, so we were very selective about choosing suppliers. But the overall quality of the product has been borne out by the sales success we have enjoyed since launch – and which shows no signs of abating. It is a range that customers old and new are very happy with.” To find out more about the North Valley Metal product range call 01282 615239 or email
