DHF membership hits all-time high

Published: 29 January 2015
The Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) has welcomed its 300th member, as its drive to increase levels of quality, compliance, training and safety in the industry continues.
The total membership of the trade federation is at its highest level ever. As the DHF's rate of growth accelerates, it is confident there will be more than 350 companies in the door, hardware and powered gate sectors in its ranks by the end of the year.

"There is an increasing realisation amongst companies that to compete effectively in today's tough and demanding marketplace, companies must strive to achieve the quality levels already reached by our members," said DHF executive chairman Bob Perry.

The DHF represents the key players in industrial, commercial and garage doors and automated gates, as well as the leading UK manufacturers and suppliers of building hardware, locks and architectural ironmongery.

The association's 300th member is Hillaldam Coburn, which supplies sliding door systems. The company has a heritage in manufacturing and product development dating back to 1911. A family owned business until 1986, Hillaldam Coburn is now part of JBS Industries.

Hillaldam Coburn director Bernard Houghton said: "We're committed to adherence to standards and legislation. So it's vital that we belong to the leading trade body to gain access to its extensive knowledge base on technical issues, the latest standards and new legislation. The DHF will also provide us with valuable technical back up."
