A THETFORD firm which is expanding steadily despite the poor economic climate is the latest winner of the Barclays/Moving Thetford Forward business award.

Anglia Door Systems, which offers a 24-hour, seven days

a week service for the

repair and maintenance of industrial and commercial doors, was nominated by Barclays local business manager Carol Touchin.

Carol paid tribute to managing director Dan Hutt and said he had won the award because of his business management skills. He worked to a business plan and customer service was key - resulting in recommendations being received constantly.

Anglia Door Systems covers East Anglia, offering a fast response to all service calls by engineers based around the region. All vehicles are linked via a broadband connection to computerised tracking and servicing software to enable each engineer to access stocks, information and to update the system on the progression of the repair.

The firm installs, repairs and maintains roller shutters, rapid-action fire shutters, barriers, gates and steel doors for some of East Anglia's largest companies, including Britvic, Aldi, Tesco, Morrisons, McDonalds, RAF Defence Estates and local and county council sites.

It has increased product lines, which now include aluminium shopfronts and doors, automatic sliding and swing doors and access control systems, and steadily increased turnover each year.

Mr Hutt said: “The company has a very strong order book and continues to grow.

“We have a detailed business plan that includes our impending accreditation into the CHAS health and safety scheme, new and exciting product developments and online

e-Commerce websites.

“This will enable us to continue moving forward and secure the jobs of our employees for many years to come.”
