Hart Door Systems – opening doors to new markets
Hart Door Systems (HDS) has been designing, manufacturing and installing specialist door systems from its global headquarters in Newcastle upon Tyne for over 50 years. Over the years, the company’s Speedor range has been installed at 3500 sites in the UK, including St Pancras station and Heathrow Terminal 5, and in 20 countries around the world.
UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has been on hand along the way to support this expansion into new markets, through market visits, the Tradeshow Access Programme and Virtual Export Manager.
Having supplied shutters to the Olympic Stadium for the London Games, HDS has sought to leverage this involvement to win new business in similar events around the world. To this end, the company has joined trade missions to Russia and Qatar. UKTI’s Head of Global Sports Projects also recently visited HDS’s headquarters to advise on the many sporting projects currently being planned around the world.
“We have always found UKTI’s help to be practical and truly useful,” says Alan Richardson, Export Manager at Hart Doors. “We really value their assistance and are keen to make the very most of it.”
