Endurance Continues To Invest For Growth
The demand for Endurance Doors continues with a strong upward trajectory, resulting in the implementation of a long-term investment programme at the company which produces premium, solid timber core, composite doors.
Last year saw the investment in an edgebander, new tooling and other capital machinery while the first quarter of 2020 will see the introduction of a CNC lock prepping machine, two new quad welders, corner cleaner and updated extraction systems.
All of this machinery has been carefully sourced to help cope with the further growth in the business ahead of actual requirements, so that customers can be reassured that orders placed will be delivered on time and in full to world class standards.
A secondary and obvious benefit for customers is that product quality has and will remain nothing short of outstanding. While typical investment is in production machinery, the delivery fleet for Endurance Doors is also being upgraded with a combination of 7.5t lorries, sprinter and smaller panel vans. This means that customers can continue to enjoy regular deliveries regardless of location across the UK and Ireland, with the added benefit of greater flexibility in vehicle type.
At the final stages of development is a new customer CRM system and Endurance are also looking to invest in a new ERP software solution, as technology and management information systems enjoy additional funding. This will help to streamline many internal processes, helping the business to operate more efficiently, with the customer centric to all activities.
Stephen Nadin, MD commented: ‘Our investment programme and strategy is relatively simple in that we can afford to put into place resources and capital equipment well ahead of growth, while also supporting our product quality promise to customers. The result is that we’re unlikely to fall foul of business growing pains, due to our proactive planning, with the needs of our customers foremost in our minds.’
