Why it’s important to specify and buy British made.
If I had a pound for every time we’ve been told that ‘we should really be manufacturing in Eastern Europe or the Middle East as it's much cheaper’, we would certainly be Pound rich now. But alas, we’ve persevered and kept our manufacturing deep in the Chiltern Hills – not for the lack of opportunities mind you.
The reasons for this are many and varied, but way up at the top of that list is the fact that we are so proud to have a product that is made and designed in Britain and we certainly feel the need to shout it from the rooftops.
Why is it important to buy British? And for that matter British made doors? BuyBritish.com list many reasons but a few stand out ‘We are concerned about the environmental cost of importing goods that can just as easily be produced in Britain. (CO2 emissions caused by shipping are DOUBLE Britain’s total emissions, and are larger than those of the aircraft industry) and we are patriotic and want to support our country and our fellow citizens.’
In addition to these points, being able to control our quality and delivery times is essential. We British can be pedantic about our quality and service and it is, although not impossible, difficult to achieve that by buying products cheaply elsewhere. In minimal time, we can modify and improve the design and performance of our doors which would be harder to do if our manufacturing was elsewhere. Having the ability to sign off each of our doors ourselves checking and rechecking that everything is as it should be, is a big part of what and how we do things in the UK.
So, we invite you to come along and see our British made doors for yourself – at the end of the day, British quality speaks for itself!
