Phoenix Doors has recruited Karen Sandford as Operations Manager to oversee production at the company’s two PVC door panel and composite door manufacturing sites.
Karen brings more than 30 years’ broad manufacturing experience to her new position, including a recent similar executive role in the security and fire doors sector.
Her key responsibilities include planning and implementing process improvements to align with MASCO UK Window Group policy, ensuring that the business continues to move forward offering the best up-to-date quality products delivered on time, every time.
Commenting on her role, Karen says: “I’m relishing this new challenge and we’re starting to see improvements already. As we continue to increase efficiency and further enhance our operations, Phoenix has the potential to become a World Class Manufacturing company. Achieving this status is the long-term goal.”
Another priority is planning for a dedicated second production line to cope with demand for Meridian, Phoenix’s 70mm double-rebated premium composite door range, which is proving popular with installers and homeowners alike.
Says Haydon Statham, Phoenix Doors’ Sales Director: “Having grown at phenomenal speed this year, we’re getting smoother and slicker. Karen’s manufacturing knowledge, expertise and approach is already making a positive difference to our production schedules and customer deliveries.”
