Trip to Hörmann Factory


Back in the late summer of 2014, Hörmann invited main UK partners to their Ichtershausen and Brandis factories in Germany.

Members of the Bradford Garage Door team attended the event and found that not only was it highly informative and showcased off the attention to detail which goes into ensuring all Hörmann garage doors are of the highest of qualities, but that it was also very enjoyable.

One of the great reasons for going to this event was to see with our very own eyes how some of the products are made. Whilst we consider ourselves to be one of the UK’s experts in Hörmann garage doors, you cannot put into words how incredible the whole procedure is or read it on paper. Being able to see it up close will inevitably have a huge impact on us being able to provide the people of Bradford with the exact door they want, including new variations which we were shown during the trip.

After the event, Hörmann released their own statement outlining some of the key points which they were trying to deliver:

  • This was the first time that anyone from the UK had stepped inside the Ichtershausen factory, which was built in 1999 and it is now the largest factory, holding an impressive 26,000 sectional doors at one go.
  • The trip to the Brandis factory was included to showcase the industrial and domestic steel-skinned hinge doors and the ThermoPro door range.
  • One both days, the trips to the warehouses were particularly educational and we held frequent question and answer sessions to ensure every person got what they wanted to achieve out of the trip. Common questions were asked around lead time, new developments and the factories high level of automatic processes.

Due to the success of the event, Hörmann are considering making trip to UK dealers more frequent. At Bradford Garage Doors, we believe these types of trips are vital to improving our understanding of the products and thus with a greater understanding of how they work and the many benefits, we can provide a greater customer service.
