All across Britain, businesses are increasingly favouring those products which have that ‘Made in Britain’ seal of approval. And we believe that this is the direction that industry should move towards. Why import from further afield when you can find exactly what you need, here on your doorstep?

At Metador, you’ll be happy to know that all of our steel doors are completely designed and manufactured in house, with all materials sourced from within the four corners of the United Kingdom. All of our components are also made within a few miles of our factory, based in Middlesbrough. This is important to us as a company, as manufacturing here in Britain allows us to support local industry, as well as jobs in the region. This is imperative for creating not only a streamlined service end-to-end, but also a booming economy.

Ensuring that we always have what your clients need in stock, and the fact that we don’t need to import materials from across the world, our turnaround times are incredibly quick, meaning that delivery is on time, every time. This not only reduces our carbon footprint, but it lowers yours too!

Whether your site is in Land’s End or John O’Groats, your doors won’t have more than 500 miles to travel. We are a British company using British materials, and have total control over quality, in our own factory. So when we ship your order, we don’t need a ship.

Here’s just a few reasons why we think manufacturing in Britain is so important…

Creates Jobs

We believe that if more products are being produced in the UK, it evidently means that more jobs will be created. In the long-run, this will prevent job cuts, reduce unemployment, and prevent businesses from outsourcing work in the future; which you’ll agree, is a significant investment in the economy.

Skills in the Industry

Allowing all of our products to be manufactured here on British soil, gives us the ability to produce a wider range of skills and abilities within our industry. Training up people in our region will not only expand talent in our sector, but also have a positive impact on UK trade overall.

Lowers Costs

Importing from overseas sends costs soaring high; spiralling out of control at times. So, wouldn’t you rather use a company in the UK to bring down your overheads? Our process means that we have far less miles to travel, saving a vast amount of money on transportation and logistics. Less people are involved in moving the product from factory to customer, which allows you to tighten your purse strings, positively benefitting your company’s finances.

Reduces Carbon Footprint

As a business, you will be far more aware of the impact you are having on the environment around you, with the ever-growing necessity to be “green” at the forefront of everything that we do, whether it be daily tasks, or in business. Manufacturing in the UK means that your product is fully-traceable from purchase to delivery, and will have only travelled within the length and breadth of Britain.

Top Quality Products

Because we manufacture in house, each and every product is made to extremely high standards and we ensure that no product leaves our workshop unless it has been thoroughly checked by hand and quality monitored to specification and industry standards. Ordering from overseas gives you that possibility of your order not being quite right; with us, we can guarantee that the quality of your delivery will be of the highest calibre.
