The BRP Split

The former BRP Group as I’m sure you are aware has now been split up in to the smaller brands that created it and sold off where possible.  This is the latest new I have.  Some things have been difficult to confirm so I apologise if any of this is incorrect.

  • There has been no buyer for Henderson, the factory at Bowburn has closed and the website has been taken down.
  • Cardale has been bough by Steve Hobbs former director at BRP and Jeremy Baker of The Garage Door Company.
  • Steel Line has been bought by Gliderol and closed down.
  • Chamberlain Doors have bought Wessex and plan to continue manufacturing and supplying the garage door industry with GRP panel doors.

Will this change the way you buy?  Are you glad to see that some parts of BRP have been bought in order to keep competition in the UK market, or do you now see buying  from Cardale and Wessex as supporting competitors?

    Dear All
    Many of you will know me from my 30 years plus working for Cardale. I purchased the Timber Shop at Brackley from the administrators and am now trading as Woodrite Doors Ltd. We are up and running and able to supply timber doors at your request. We are soon to be moving units within the Brackley location and will be sending out price lists and contact details very shortly, but in the mean time if you have any timber door requirements please contact Sharon Cleaver on 07788161854 and she will be able to update you on what we are doing. Very much look forward to hearing from you all and doing business with you in the future. John Brooks
