New site opens doors for next stage of Virtuoso Doors growth

An intensive programme of factory upgrades following a site move is putting Gateshead-based composite door manufacturer Virtuoso Doors back on the path to renewed growth. The company is now producing up to 200 doors per day, despite the backdrop of the pandemic, materials shortages and escalating customer demand.

Virtuoso Doors manufactures high quality composite doors and PVCu door panels through a mix of precision engineering and workshop finishing supplying doors with stunning detail and unrivalled quality.

The company moved from its original Chester-le-Street manufacturing site to the new purpose-built site at Follingsby Park, Gateshead at the start of 2021. The site, formerly the clothing warehouse for Barbour, has a 120,00 sq. ft. footprint and will double the capacity and manufacturing capability of Virtuoso Doors.

Over the course of the year the site has had a power upgrade to meet manufacturing requirements, a new compressed air system, and state of the art extraction system installed. New lift assist systems allow the factory technicians and craftsmen to work on the door units quickly and safely, without compromising on the crafted precision ethos of Virtuoso Doors.

Furthermore the move to a more modern building is allowing for a number of improvements to staff facilities from the catering and break areas to the office space.
