Complete offer according to individual customer requirements
The innovative products and solutions of the Doors Division are very important for the pursuit of new market shares. The emphasis is on mass production as well as the manufacturing of wooden and glass doors according to individual customer requirements. The division is also pushing the development and manufacturing of technical doors and fire protection doors as part of a joint project within the entire Wood Solutions Business Unit. The production is supplemented by various service solutions. Intensive support of customers during the construction phase is thus just as natural as preserving the value of manufactured products. This is done, for examplre, by providing specific cleaning agents and maintenance instructions / work.
The development of high-quality products with optimised material use is based on in-depth market observation: Through regular customer surveys, the division ensures that the requirements and demands of customers are taken into account and reflected in the innovation process. In product development, it not only concentrates on the technical progress but also on an innovative design that aims to convince users and fitters equally. The exchange of experience between the companies of the division as well as the contact with research centres establish solid foundations for this.
The division aims to expand its leading position in the European doors market by developing customer-oriented products, optimising the existing portfolio, reducing delivery times through targeted investments, and strengthening customer relationships. Important drivers for this progress are digitisation and the reduction of packaging material – as well as the development of new product groups. A good example is the PU edging system at the Roggwil (CH) site, which can be used to produce long-lasting doors for the hospital area. The robust edge contributes to a longer use of the doors. The same effect is achieved by the aluminium frames. A further market innovation is DigiDoor. This technology is based on a digital twin and allows a fast access to product-specific information. This accelerates the process with maintenance and repair work in particular.
Success monitoring for new developments is ensured with a systematic project management and regular reporting to management. The companies of the division make an important contribution to establishing future standards and regulations through their active participation in bodies and committees. This also makes it possible to identify trends early in order to adjust the strategic orientation.
