Sentry Doors has announced its membership of the prestigious Made in Britain (MiB) scheme, which was established to support and promote British manufacturing.
As a UK manufacturer of fully certified safety and security fire doors, quality and service are the cornerstones of Sentry’s philosophy, and it says the MiB collective mark is a celebration of this.
Originally dreamt up by Denver Hewlett, CEO of Stoves, to help consumers and specifiers identify products made in the UK, MiB membership is widely viewed as an assurance of quality.
Covering every branch of manufacturing from clothing to transport, the MiB marque provides the confirmation that goods being sold by a business have been produced here.
MiB adheres to advice on country-of-origin labelling included in the Trade Descriptions Act 1968.
The advice reads: “The country of origin is therefore the country in which a product last underwent a final treatment or process resulting in a substantial change.”
It is currently the only official mark for British manufacturers and is registered with UKIPO across 30 product classes.
Trading since 1989, Sentry Doors manufactures high-performance, timber fire-door sets in the heart of South Yorkshire, and it says that manufacturing products within the UK offers complete control and greater flexibility.
Sentry adds that centralising the manufacturing process ensures designers and manufacturers can work closely together, which allows for continuous development and improvement of the already extensive range of fire-door set, allowing the creation of bespoke designs to a consistent quality.
Further, Sentry says that being part of a community of like-minded manufacturers provides many benefits, including bringing together UK manufacturers and encouraging members to share ideas and insight.
Ty Aziz, managing director of Sentry Doors, said: “Customer confidence is absolutely essential when procuring fire doors, and that’s why we see investment in accolades such as Made in Britain as imperative in order to provide buyer peace of mind that the products they are purchasing are made to the highest standards of quality and performance.
“We will continue to expand our already extensive certification and accreditation portfolio in order to offer ensure complete buyer confidence.”
