Scunthorpe company to create more jobs after securing £4m worth of new orders

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 1 Dec 2017

A Scunthorpe-based manufacturer is set to expand after a surge in new orders followed its accreditation with a UK product and quality service certification.

Highseal Manufacturing Company has received new orders worth £4 million after being accredited with the BSI Kitemark.

That accreditation comes after a £130,000 investment from the Donaldson family, who own the business, which is contributing to a recruitment drive that will see the team at its Scunthorpe headquarters increase to 25.

And the company says further job opportunities will become available over the coming months.

The growth and expansion will see Highseal provide doors and windows for almost 2,000 new homes across five housing development sites.

It will also introduce a new aluminium system called Warmcore, which offers windows, bi-folding doors, residential doors and sliding patio suites, to the market.

Highseal managing director Neil Donaldson said: "Our focus is to consistently provide a better quality service for our clients, driven by maintaining solid relationships with trade customers, installers and distributors.

"The BSI Kitemark accreditation has increased the amount of orders we are receiving threefold, and has thus meant that we are expanding our team, crucial in light of the growing demand from regional and national clientele.

"Since our establishment in 2012 the business has grown year-on-year, and we now have an increasing number of associate traders, installers and blue-chip clients nationally.

"The new aluminium range will also be available in our sister brand, the Cre8a Pod, which are stylish and modern accommodation units, business premises and garden rooms."
