We have been very fortunate not to have been flooded in Rochdale over the Christmas break as we have the Rochdale canal next to our site. There was no electricity disruption for the factory either, which meant the bio mass burner has kept the factory at the optimum 18 degree Celsius during the holidays.

Crystal Doors is proud to be installing the latest investment of a bio mass burner providing up to 980 Kw of heat.

The demand for our paintable foil is climbing, and now in our top 10 foils. We have contracts for commercial installations and wish to give all our customers the opportunity to have colour matched vinyl doors. Richard Hagan can remember sanding MDF at the age of fifteen for pierce laminate doors, 26 years ago.
