DOORCO Goes On Growing With Jayne Sullivan As Operation Director


DOORCO, formerly the Capstone composite door brand, has announced the appointment of Jayne Sullivan as its first Operations Director.

Jayne, wife of MD Dan Sullivan has years of experience both in the corporate world and the family business environment – where she says she began at the age of ten. Now, after Dan and co-founder John Collins have put seven years into building Capstone and DOORCO into its present form, all are agreed the time is right for her to join the team.

She brings with her an impressive CV with blue chip names including Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Ernst & Young and Astra Zeneca, working fields as diverse as energy & utilities, telecoms, entertainment, betting and local government, in various locations around Europe and the Far East.

Jayne says: “My priority as Operations Director will be to ensure that we have robust processes working well over all areas of the business. The company has relied on a small but dedicated team to operate it but as it grows, we will need to make more use of technology so that our staff can focus on more valuable tasks.”

The company had its beginnings when Dan and John, both with years of experience in the door industry, began supplying container quantities of door slabs to large fabricators. The change of identity came about after it began manufacturing prepared doors of all kinds, not just residential composite and took on DOORCO as a name that was more relevant to its new offering. Dan explained that it was the impact an earlier recruitment from the corporate world – of Sales Manager Mike Roe – that highlighted the benefits Jayne could bring to the business with her own corporate background.

Dan concluded: “We are really turning up our focus on the team, which has grown by nearly double in the last year. We have the right people; we now need to support them to develop skills in areas which we need and will continue to add to this as the business grows.”

DOORCO Celebrates 3000th Door Through Its Custom Paint Line


DOORCO, the recently re-branded supplier of Capstone composite doors, is celebrating the 3000th door to go through the company’s in-house paint line in the two years since the system was installed at its Macclesfield factory.

The system was designed and installed specifically for the GRP door market using Regalead’s Color Spray colour systems and Renolit foils to provide consistently accurate and high quality matches. A full range of RAL colours is provided in addition to authentic stained finishes. Glazing cassettes and accessories are painted with the panels to ensure an exact colour match.

Products and processes including controlled drying techniques have been developed specifically for the company’s Capstone GRP doors. An intensive quality control system ensures that every door that leaves the factory is produced to the highest standards to maintain the exceptional finishes for which Capstone doors have become identified. A 10-year guarantee given with every DOORCO GRP residential door is therefore offered with complete confidence.

DOORCO managing director Dan Sullivan says the milestone is more than just a number: “More than 3000 doors through our own in-house paint line makes DOORCO one of the most experienced suppliers of custom finished resi’ doors in the UK. We control all of our own processes and can therefore offer the highest quality finishes in the market with complete confidence.”
