Made in Great Britain

February 28th 2013

Solidor, the pioneering composite door manufacturer, have just launched a 'Made in Great Britain' campaign that is designed to encourage the trade and consumers to support British manufacturing.

The history of British manufacturing dates back to the Industrial Revolution in the 1780’s to 1830’s, which also spurned the birth of the modern capitalist economy. More recently the British Motorcycle industry has come and gone, along with the car industry, with the iconic Mini brand now owed by the German BMW Group.

The British economy is now awash with imports from the Far East, yet Solidor firmly believe that consumers should look more towards products that are designed and engineered in the UK. Underpinning this new campaign is the fact that it is designed to support British manufacturing, helps minimize the impact on the environment and creates jobs. Like Solidor, there are many other companies in the UK manufacturing sector with a thirst for innovation.

Solidor’s unique solid core composite door has been designed and engineered in the UK and is manufactured in their new extended premises in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. As the company has grown, so too has their position as a major employer in the city with the company nominated in no fewer than three categories in the 2012 North Staffordshire Business Awards.

Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group comments: ‘As a manufacturer, we’d like to see the Great put back into Great Britain. As a nation we’ve developed some notable products over the years from the first jet engine, to the Mini and now’s the time to support British manufactured products in the home improvement sector.’

To see Solidor’s Great British products, see them at the main entrance of Hall 1, stand 01-100 of the FIT Show, April 16-18, 2013. For other information call 01782 847300, log on to their new website at or follow them on twitter @solidorltd.
