Fire-hit company finds new premises

A company hit by a fire has found new premises.

Dove Steel Doors has relocated to a 14,000 sq ft base at Albion Works in Brierley Hill after a blaze ripped through itsoriginal factory on the Dudley Central Trading Estate in July.

Black Country industrial property specialists Siddall Jones found the new premises for the company.

Managing director Ed Siddall-Jones said: “There is currently a severe shortage of available industrial stock in the Black Country and the West Midlands generally, but fortunately the directors of Dove Steel Doors had been in touch with me previously about a move.

“At that time there wasn’t a unit of the right size available at Albion Works, so it was extremely fortunate that when they called, we had the right building at the right time to accommodate them quickly.”

Olivia Powell, new accounts manager at Dove Steel Doors, said: “We had continued to work, with appropriate safeguarding, during the pandemic lockdown, so it was essential that we maintained production and delivery of orders. With Ed Siddall-Jones’ help we were back up and running in the shortest possible time.”

Established in 2008, Dove Steel Doors Ltd provides specialist steel doors fabricated to order and now employs 30 staff.
