Turnover success for growing manufacturer

Doorcerts, the Nottinghamshire-based fire door supplier and manufacturer, is celebrating its growth after its first full financial year in new premises.

The company was officially founded in Ripley in 2020 but it wasn’t until it, and established sister company Fire Door Specialists, moved to Stanton Hill, Ashfield in late 2022 that it began operating fully.

In its financial year December 2022 to January 2023, it hit its forecast turnover and is already on track to be well ahead of its £1m target for this year.

When it moved to Stanton Hill, Doorcerts had just two staff members. Now it has seven and is also recruiting for an additional estimator.

It carries out work for a range of public and private sector organisations, and can name customers such as Cadburys, the Ministry of Defence, property developers and local councils among its client list.

Director and co-founder Kieran Percival said: “When we moved premises, we did so because we wanted space for the business to grow. We had, and continue to have, big plans and we are well on the way to achieving them.

“We have grown quite considerably recently, and we are very grateful for the support and advice we have been given along the way. Although we are growing, we are also a close-knit team here at Doorcerts and I think that that, along with being dedicated to customer service and having an ethos of transparency, has been the hallmark of our success so far.”

One of the people that Doorcerts recruited was the highly-experienced Sarah Armson, who has a background in fire safety products.

As commercial manager, she has overseen the development of the business, putting in place robust systems and policies, and co-ordinating the marketing along with specially-recruited marketing coordinator Craig Priest.
