Letter to the Editor: DOORCO our pricing Jayne Sullivan

Jayne Sullivan, Operations Directo

Dear Ian

In the spirit of transparency, back in Autumn DOORCO publicly set out our pricing strategy post-Brexit. While others took immediate action to hike prices, we pledged to keep an eye on the currency markets to see how things played out. With no signs of recovery however, this unfortunately resulted in us being forced to introduce a price surcharge. But unlike those suppliers who imposed a blanket price increase – some as high as 20% - we introduced a flexible surcharge index that we promised we’d keep under review and revise quarterly...[ more ]

Yours sincerely,

Tony Drake,
Managing Director of Fenster Fabrications


  Michele Wietscher, Director Newview Windows & Conservatories

A progressive step forward to bridge too far for ‘over-taxed’ businesses?

Michele Wietscher, who is the joint founder of Newview Windows & Conservatories, says that although the introduction of the National Living Wage is the right thing to do, it comes at a time when businesses are facing rising rates, energy costs and the introduction of auto-enrolment.

On April 1st 2017, the National Living Wage is set to increase to £7.50 per hour for workers aged 25 and over in the UK.

The decision has been lauded as a step towards financial equality in the UK as the government plans a shift from a low wage, high tax, high welfare society to a higher wage, lower tax, lower welfare society. –..[ more ]
