A Nottinghamshire performance doorset manufacturer is set to grow revenues by £2m this year thanks partly to a £400,000 purchase of new machinery.

Integrated Doorset Solutions and its sister business Performance Joinery supply specialist doorsets to the healthcare, education, commercial and high-end residential sectors and also have continued to see significant growth.

The Mansfield-based firms took delivery of two computer-controlled machining centres, a superset moulder along with a profile sander that will make their factories faster and more efficient, while also ensuring high quality and improving health and safety.

The investment comes on the back of growing demand for its products, including fire and x-ray-proof doors, from the health sector.

Chairman Nigel Richmond said that the business had been so busy that a planned Easter shutdown had to be postponed.

He said: “The coronavirus outbreak meant many existing healthcare building projects happen to be accelerated and we’ve been commissioned to work on new projects, including the temporary NHS Nightingale hospitals in Manchester and Exeter.

“These new machines will let us meet the increasing volume of work that’s arriving, as well as expanding the range of products we’re able to supply.

“We only started the company five years ago and within that point we’re really proud that we’ve been able to create about 250 skilled jobs, that is fantastic for Mansfield.

“We’ve got a very strong order book and the future looks really positive.”

Integrated Doorset Solutions was founded in 2021 and posted revenues of £19m last year, which is set to grow to £21m in 2021.

Performance Joinery was founded by the same team in 2021 to supply ancillary performance products like door frames, architrave, glazed screens and skirting boards, so it had previously purchased from external suppliers. It will achieve over £3m in revenues in its first year of business.

Lloyds Bank provided a £400,000 hire purchase facility to aid the latest investment.

Lesley Williams, Associate Director, GTB Asset Finance at Lloyds Bank, said: “They at Integrated Doorset Solutions and Performance Joinery have built an exceptional business with fantastic growth prospects in a very short space of time.

“They know this industry perfectly and have already won a diverse mix of customers from over the public and private sectors.

“Lloyds Bank is very happy to continue to support their growth. This investment will significantly grow their productivity and means they can bid for bigger and jobs going forward.”
