Our Company Background

Whilst our VUFOLD brand of bi-folding doors was first launched in 2006 by our founders John and Elizabeth Collins, you may not know that we’ve been in the business of manufacturing timber doors and door systems since as far back as 1982. It was our team that pioneered the manufacturing of ‘engineered timber’ components in both external and internal wooden doors. Made by combining wood with strong adhesives alongside other performance-enhancing materials, we revolutionised the door production industry. This innovation proved more than suitable for tough structural situations, like the manufacturing of bifold doors for instance (our specialty).

In early 2000 we recognised that people loved the concept of bi-folding doors, bringing the outside in, blurring the edges between home and garden - this was initially fuelled by the popularity of home renovation and DIY programmes such as Grand Designs. Due to the design and sheer cost of these early bespoke bifold door systems they were out of reach for the vast majority of homeowners.

We knew that we had the chance to make a difference, to be the change the industry needed; Enter Vufold and the era of affordable Bifold doors. Using our extensive knowledge of mass produced engineered wooden doors and partnering with Centor, a hardware manufacturing company, we were able to design and perfect a range of high-quality cost effective wooden bifold doors.

Since then, our passion has always been to ensure that you are provided with only the highest quality of product, priding ourselves on being at the forefront of the design, high volume production and supply of bi-folding doors.

Perfect Experience.

We of course did not stop at the production of engineered hardwood bifold doors sets, we branched out even further afield and in 2012 launching the Ultra range – a bifold door featuring a hardwood core with Oak veneer internally and an aluminium cladding on the outside. One year later we decided to fully explore the possibilities of Aluminium and so the Supreme Bifold Range was born, and we never looked back.

Our expertise does not simply stop at bifold doors, in fact since the early days we have branched out even further afield. Nowadays, the Vufold brand is synonymous with high quality not just in the Bifold door market but in the production of sliding patio doors, French doors, windows and front doors as well.

Throughout the years, our catalogue has been ever expanding, there is always room for change, room for something new and innovative – we saw there was a high demand for what we do, customers longing to give their home a much-needed wow factor and we were more than happy help them achieve this dream. We have Internal and External bi-folding doors, French/Sliding Patio Doors, Roof Glazing and Windows, all designed to make your life as easy and as stylish as possible – but of course, looks aren’t everything, our products couple their beautiful appearance with reliability, expert craftsmanship, robustness and all the while meeting your security needs; they truly are the whole package.

All our ranges are crafted in woodworking and aluminium factories that make use of only the latest high-tech machinery to produce Vufold doors and windows to a high and consistent standard and thanks to the sheer volume of doors we produce, we can ensure that what we sell is kept at an affordable level, as is our raison d'etre.

Throughout the years our ranges have changed somewhat, tweaks here and there always striving for greatness and of course, to make sure that the product you receive is of the highest quality possible.
