As a UK based manufacturer of doorsets and associated joinery items, European Doorsets are aware of the impact that the woodworking industry may have on the surrounding environment.
European Doorsets are fully committed to sustainable business practices and understand the importance of social responsibility. We constantly review our procedures and processes to minimise any negative impact on the environment and continually seek to improve efficiency in our production methods. As a sustainable and environmentally-conscious manufacturer, European Doorsets are fully certified to supply doorsets under the FSC® and PEFC Chain of Custody schemes.
With all items manufactured within our factory based in the North West of England, we are able to easily manage and adhere to the strict FSC® and PEFC controls in-house unlike many importers of doorsets from overseas. Our commitment to sustainability is led by our Directors whose aim is to be at the forefront of the industry. Managing Director Paul Bailey is currently the Honorary Treasurer for the BWF (British Woodworking Federation) which is the leading trade association for the woodworking and joinery manufacturing industry in the UK. Further to this, newly appointed Chairman Roy Wakeman OBE has also served an unprecedented past three terms as BWF President.
Roy’s extensive knowledge and previous services within the industry and doorset market has enabled us to strengthen and develop our business further whilst remaining focused in the interests of our key stakeholders. Our commitment is also focused on the people around us. We are committed in building strong relationships with our suppliers and strive to use local sources wherever possible. Working in collaboration with our suppliers has enabled us to strengthen our supply chain significantly and reduce our carbon foot-print on the environment.
Our continued focus and commitment into reviewing business practices and delivering new standards helps us facilitate our approach towards sustainable development and social responsibility.
