Furnica announced at the beginning of the year that, in response to a number of enquiries from its customers, it was going to introduce high quality sliding door systems for carpentry companies and private clients to the UK market.
The most important challenge in introducing sliding door systems into the UK market was to ensure stocks of aluminium and steel profiles, as well as all the accessories required to manufacture the completed doors.
Furnica now intends to dedicate part of its warehouse in Rugby to maintain stock levels so that the first customers can be served in December this year.
“At the moment we are doing our best to respond to the demand from our clients, both carpenter companies who manufacture wardrobes and cupboards with sliding doors, and individual customers using the application for ordering sliding doors on line,” comments Kamil Siedzielnik, Furnica CEO.
In the second half of November, Furnica plans to deliver the necessary profiles and accessories for the manufacture of sliding doors to the UK warehouse, and the stock levels maintained will enable Furnica to deliver accessories within four working days for its customers in the UK.
“Later this year, we also plan to introduce a special application for designing and ordering sliding doors online,” adds Kamil. “In the application, the customer enters the dimensions of the door and chooses the profile colour and type of filling. Within four weeks, one of the companies cooperating with Furnica will deliver the manufactured sliding door to the indicated address.
“Furnica is currently looking for companies in the UK who would like to start working with us to manufacture sliding doors for individual customers who wish to order them online.
“We are looking for carpenters who already manufacture sliding doors, who would like to work as an Furnica Authorised Dealer. From our side we will provide training and the necessary tools.”
Furnica intends to focus primarily on the supply of aluminium and steel profiles and accessories to the UK and will outsource the entire sliding door production and delivery process.
“We do not intend to manufacture ready-made sliding doors,” explains Kamil. “All orders received online, via our website furnica.co.uk, will be forwarded to dealers who will use our systems to manufacture and deliver the finished doors to our customers.
“For companies willing to cooperate, Furnica has prepared very attractive price conditions. As a manufacturer and distributor of furniture accessories, Furnica does not plan to make money on serving retail customers and therefore intends to transfer its services to a network of cooperating companies.”
To further support its partners, Furnica will soon be introducing Lacobel in several colours, EGGER 10mm board and a wide range of mirrors in various colours.
