UK: Specialist engineered door supplier Rhino has moved some manufacturing work from its site in Port Talbot to its Bamber Bridge location to support the completion of current projects in the rail sector.
The company is nearing the end of a £1m+ project to design and install 20 bespoke oversized 90 min integrity stainless steel fire doors at London Underground’s Bank station, with the final manufacturing work for this taking place at Port Talbot.
Bamber Bridge will complete a contract to supply 19 bespoke single-leaf cross-passage sliding fire doors for use within ‘a major North American rail tunnel’.
Last year Rhino completed a £600 000 project to supply London’s Moorgate station with self-closing 2 h integrity stainless steel fire doors, designed to provide refuge for passengers during potential emergencies.
‘It’s been a brilliant year for Rhino Doors and the wider group, with multiple high-profile rail infrastructure projects ongoing, as well as a steady flow of work in other major sectors’, said Group Managing Director Stuart Lawrence on January 9. ‘We’re looking forward to continuing on this positive trajectory throughout 2023, securing new work with clients and making the most of our brilliant workforce, across both our Welsh and English manufacturing bases.’
