Union Industries

The Best of British

Testimonials

As a user of many different types of industrial doors across several RDC’s in the UK, having good reliable rapid rise freezer doors in our coldrooms is important to ourselves at LIDL, but having even better service support back-up by our door suppliers is by far more important to ensure a fast response time on any repairs required that could affect our chill chain.

Our RDC’s have various temperature & environmental zones which are required because of the different food products we have for our stores. And because we need regular access between these areas for our forklifts and op trucks, we need good reliable fast acting doors, especially when it comes to the freezers as we can’t afford for the temperatures to drop due to doors being open, out of action. Hence, why we started standardising on Union Industries high speed Eiger door for our freezer cold stores. A good reliable door that saves us money in the long term.

We used to pay for constant call-outs, repairs, parts and maintenance of different types of freezer door we used previously with constant ice build up. But since we’ve had Union Eigers Doors and their excellent Lifetime Warranty scheme, we have hardly any issues now and we never looked back!

Their Lifetime Warranty gives us a full after-sales support system as well as regular servicing on our Union doors. This means we don’t get the big repair bills and we get a great response time if we do need to get Union’s technician’s to site. It’s this level of service we need and from our experiences, we know Union will deliver.

Another advantage is that having the Lifetime Warranty on our doors makes maintenance budgeting very easy – one fixed annual fee for each door for the warranty, all the servicing and access to a very quick and efficient service.
With the Lifetime Warranty in place it means we win hands down over the longer term. Due to the success of Union’s Eiger doors on LIDL RDC’s and their warranty service plan we can maintain a reliable chill chain at all items that is critical to our business.

I would just like to pass on our thanks for the recent installation of our Bulldoor on our warehouse.

From the initial request, through to design, manufacture and finally installation, the whole process has been handled smoothly and professionally.

There are cheaper doors out there in the market however the level of service and quality of product  you provide more than make up for this.

This last installation was our fifth on our site and I have no doubt that it will not be your last.

Please pass on my thanks to particularly the installation team who worked with us to get the door working when others had made the installation a bit more challenging thank it had should have been initially.

I look forward to working with you again in the future.

I would like to take this opportunity to give a resounding 10 out of 10 to Union Industries in respect of the 7 Bulldoors and 1 Ramdoor we currently have on site.  The first door was installed 15 years ago and has proved (and is still proving) to be a sound investment, as have all the other doors we subsequently purchased.

Due to their fast action operation these doors help maintain a consistent working temperature within our Operational Departments, especially during the winter months.

Based on the performance of these doors and the fantastic customer service we receive, I would have no hesitation in using Union Industries for any future door installations on our site in Wetherby.

Since we have installed the Matador high speed doors (Dec 1997) we have not had any issues or breakdowns with them. They are very reliable doors.
