Way back in 2015 we featured a photograph of this beautiful aeroplane the Aerion AS2 jet in our blog “We’re local to you” a blog which appeared upon our Timber Composite Doors site and which was all about the GFD Group of companies ability to deliver and install your new composite front door anywhere throughout the UK. Looking back at that Blog it is interesting to see just how much has changed both in the content of the blog and the world of GFD since 2015.

The beautiful Aerion AS2 was scheduled to be flying commercially by 2021 – whereas 2023 now seems to be the best positive estimated date

The Airbus “Son of Concorde” seems to have stalled after the early 2015 activity as our searches find very little new.

GFD are no longer in Hartlepool but have moved to bigger and better premises in Billingham some eight miles away

The GFD group has grown – of the three subsidiary companies mentioned in the article – Global Sash Windows is no more but for no more sinister reason than it was wound down by ourselves due to poor volume of sales

Timber Composite Doors and Global Door continue to go from strength to strength and they have been joined by

Composite Door Prices – we do the work and vet our preferred doors to make life easier for our customers.

BiFold Door Prices – as last but for Bi folds and also includes windows, rooflights and lantern light

WarmCore Homes – for specialist Aluminium Bi folds

Eurosecure – for all of your domestic household security needs

And the most recent addition to our portfolio our new flagship site –

GFD Homes – where you will find the best of all of our products taken from all of our other sites all set out in an easy to understand format on a brand-new web site.

The one thing that has most definitely not changed is our excellent installation service a service that still operates throughout the UK a service of which we and our installation partner Martindales – the same Martindales referred to in our 2015 Blog – who have now been our strategic joint venture partner for installations for some eight years. With that degree of longevity and literally tens of thousands of installations throughout the period any prospective customer can take it for granted that we know what we are doing. The even better news for our prospective customers is that during that eight years we have not let the grass grow under our feet – between ourselves and Martindales we have created a fully automated sophisticated management system which provides the customer with mails of our every move – from confirmation of sales order – to surveyors visit to delivery and installation of the finished product.

As the company has grown every one of our new companies has been supported by our Installation service and the same applies to GFD Homes so whether it is a single door or window or a complete house of doors , Bi Folds, Windows, rooflights or  lanternlights, we have it covered and because the system is automated every order receives the same quality service.
