Hörmann (UK) Ltd.

First established in 1979 from a small industrial unit in Leicester. Hörmann UK's continual growth meant that in 1993 we moved to new premises at Whetstone in Leicester.
In 2000, due to increased growth, we moved into purpose built offices at our current location in Coalville, Leicestershire, giving us a footprint of 8000 square metres.
In 2006 we built on remaining land, adding a further 3800 square metres of assembly/warehouse space and 200 square metres of office space. Providing a total building footprint of 12,000 square metres.
Modern Slavery Statement 2019
The foundation for today’s company was laid in the 1950s with the industrial production of a new type of garage door: the up-and-over garage door. In the 1960s, space-saving, vertically opening sectional doors for garages, as well as for industrial and commercial buildings, initiated a future-oriented development. Since then, the product range has been extended systematically. Today, in addition to the well-known classics, the product range also includes rolling shutters, sliding and high-speed doors, entrance and internal doors, frames, door operators, fire-rated and smoke-tight door assemblies, loading technology systems as well as automatic sliding door and perimeter protection systems.
The Hörmann Group is Europe’s leading supplier of doors. Since the company’s foundation in 1935, it has produced and delivered more than 20 million doors worldwide. More than 6,000 employees in 38 specialised factories in Europe, North America and Asia develop and produce high-quality doors, hinged doors, frames and operators for use in private and commercial properties. The headquarters of the globally active Hörmann Group is located in the small town of Steinhagen, Germany.
