Teckentrup Carteck Carteck is the domestic brand of the Teckentrup range of domestic and industrial garage doors. At the premises in Warrington they receive, from the German factory, the component parts of the various garage doors and produce, in a kit form, the complete garage doors to order. The History The Teckentrup story commenced with the opening of a small engineering workshop in the town of Gutersloh in Germany in 1932. It was not until 1960 that the inspirational decision was made to go into the manufacture and production of doors and frames, a rapidly growing market. Accelerated growth saw the relocation of the company to new, larger premises in Verl. Involvement in the security sector meant that they soon became the leading supplier of fire barriers. So it was that a once small engineering workshop became a medium sized industrial company. At that time, the main areas of expertise were in: smoke protection, security, heat insulation, and industrial doors. They also produced path bound transport systems. This has resulted in Teckentrup being associated with comprehensive solutions by architects, builders and end users. Upon reunification of Germany in 1990 the company had the foresight to open a production facility in the East German town of Grosszerberitz. The state of the art production machinery helped reduce delivery times. Quality was also improved. At the commencement of the new millennium, a brand new 12,800 sqm production hall was built alongside the company headquarters in Verl. This modern hi-tech facility is used to produce roller shutters and sectional garage doors for domestic and industrial use throughout Europe. The Company continued to refine its processes and has built up to approximately 850 highly skilled and qualified workers. The use of CAD technology, CNC systems housed within modern offices has made for an efficient organisation. The pillars of this company, still family owned, is the close knit network of sales companies one of which is Carteck in the UK. The Products Sectional Garage Doors The sectional is far and away the biggest seller in the Carteck range. The GSW 40 is a 40mm thick insulated steel door.
