LOCALLY MADE DOORS ANSWER FOOD MANUFACTURERS’ DEMANDS

Australia’s booming food and beverage manufacturing sector is proving to be a very lucrative market for one Melbourne-based door manufacturer.

MTI Qualos has been designing and making PVC industrial doors in Melbourne since 1970. And today the company is reaping benefits from its decision to bring all its manufacturing operations in-house.

Mil Lozanovski heads up the MTI Qualos door manufacturing operation. He says: “We’re now at a stage where all our doors are manufactured here, and we use upwards of 85% of locally made components, including all the steelwork and the vinyl.”

He does concede that “there are a few parts we have to bring in, like some door seals, but we buy them in huge bulk so that we’ve always got stocks.”

So, with no reliance on complex international supply chains that may have been interrupted by the Coronavirus crisis, MTI Qualos is well placed to service increasing demand from the food and beverage sector.

Two types of doors are proving to be particularly popular: PVC strip curtains and the company’s flagship SI163 VSD internal Roll-Fast door.

“The PVC curtains are a great low-cost way of keeping bugs out of food-safe areas,” says Lozanovski. “And that’s really down to the quality of the PVC rolls that we use. It’s so good that we’re even supplying it to our competitors.”

And for food manufacturers with a little more to spend, the SI163 internal high-speed door comes with a variable-speed drive as standard and a newly improved motor/gearbox combination that enables opening and closing speeds of 1200-1500mm/s and virtually non-stop operation.
