The cutting edge of door manufacturing
Global Doors move into new markets with the help of a PAPI grant
Wakefield-based Global Doors is a market-leading, specialised manufacturer of made-to-order sliding wardrobe doors. A skilled workforce of 40 supply independent retailers, national housebuilders, interiors designers, and the leisure industry.
The ambitious and expanding company approached PAPI for support to purchase a state-of-the-art edgebanding machine to support innovation and enable them to access new markets. This new equipment has allowed them to create new products for the luxury market and employ two new, full time positions.
Global Doors wanted to bring to the market new door frontals for their frameless, bifold, and carcass hanging door ranges. These required a particular type of very low “glue line” edging, only achieved by using a machine with advanced manufacturing edge technology, to secure an extremely high quality finish.
Following a successful application process and with the support of the experienced innovation team at PAPI, Global Doors invested in a Biesse Edge Roxyl 5.5 Edgebander machine, with Airforce technology.
