A revamp of its existing aluminium bi-folding door booklet, the updated version includes information on the new options available and is packed with images displaying the popular product to its full potential. The brochure’s creator, graphic designer Ian Bousfield, explained: “We hope it will give both current and potential customers a clearer understanding of the Visofold bi-folding doors that Made For Trade supply, and the various design and threshold options available.” Alongside the brochure, Ian has also been responsible for Made For Trade’s recent rebranding, which has included an improved logo and a new website. He adds: “With the development and growth of the company, it’s necessary to ensure the brand remains fresh and adaptable, with the ability to communicate the organisation’s products effectively.” It has been a very busy couple of years for Made For Trade, with increased staff levels and expanding factory space to cater for its best-selling core products – the Global conservatory roof and Visofold bi-folding door.

DOORCO has long been prepared for the new and more rigid security standards, thanks to investment more than two years ago in the production of a new breed of composite doors – one of which (the Combi door) even allows multiple door styles to be created from one design. Crucially, this new breed incorporates significantly improved security features across the board which stand up to the new regulations, and stock was adjusted accordingly at the time to ensure that customers now receive the higher security door as standard. Dan Sullivan, Managing Director at DOORCO explains: “At DOORCO we not only pride ourselves on leading the way in product quality and innovation, but also 70 » N OV 2015 » CL EARVI E W- UK .
