April 2, 2014. Venice, FL Aluminum bi-folding door manufacturer Origin USA is holding a Grand Opening Gala event on Wednesday, April 9 between 1pm – 7pm at its new USA headquarters in Venice, Florida.
Origin officials hope to attract trade partners looking to add an innovative door line to their portfolio and specify Origin’s high-end, aluminum doors to their customers.
The doors, which fold and slide to almost any configuration, come in over 150 colors and incorporate numerous safety features. Although Origin has just arrived in the US – owning the majority of the market share in the United Kingdom – their doors have already passed the notoriously tough HVHZ tests and have product approvals for Florida.
The Gala Event officially launches Origin USA and announces them as “open for business”. The event has already attracted special guests, including Kevin McGurgan, the British Consul General in Miami. “We are extremely proud to be entering the US market.” Comments Origin CEO, Neil Ginger. “Our statement by the April 9th event is that Origin is committed to supporting its future partners in Florida and beyond.”
Origin’s commitment is underscored by the build-out of its brand new showroom, manufacturing plant and hiring schedule. “”Made in America” is a powerful concept to us”, says Origin President, Ben Halvorsen, “and enables us to drastically reduce lead times and guarantee quality – even on a custom product like ours”.
While other sliding, folding door makers are advising lead time of up to 18-weeks, Origin claims they will have doors ready in just two weeks once all their machining is installed by May this year.
The arrival of a new manufacturer to the Gulf Coast could further boost the Florida construction industry. The doors have a wide appeal for new-build projects and upgrades while also opening up a host of options to the remodeler.
Origin staff will be on hand at the event to field questions and demonstrate the doors to members of the trade and design experts.
Refreshments will be provided and Origin encourage potential trade partners to bring their customers who may be interested in the product for upcoming projects.
