ABL doors was founded when Andy Williams, previously of the UK’s largest door slab manufacturer Premdor, spotted a frustration in the housing development market with the way that doors were sourced and fitted. He noticed that the existing way the UK development market worked when it came to door hanging was slow, expensive and inaccurate. Taking inspiration from continental Europe and The USA, he decided to pursue the idea of precision-hanging doors in a factory setting, and simply installing a full, pre-hung doorset, consisting of frame, slab & furniture.
This idea, which was revolutionary in the UK market, meant that ABL doors could stock, hang, deliver & fit doors and doorsets on demand. This greatly reduced the hassle and risk to the developer, builder or local authority, as well as saving them huge amounts of money on labour costs, as an ABL fitter can arrive on site with all required materials and install each precision-hung doorset in under 12 minutes.
ABL’s hand-picked supply chain gives us access to over 4,000 different styles of the highest quality internal, fire, acoustic and external door. Our manufacturing, delivery and fitting chains allow us to manufacture product to the highest standard, accurate to 1/100th of a millimetre, and provide the level of service expected by national housing developers and local authorities.
