We are The Builders Choice

The Builders Choice – a close team with more than 70 years of experience.

Ian Longbottom and Martin Kirk form the backbone of this new fabrication business.

Previously working together over several years, the two developed the UK’s first PVC patio door, PVC and aluminium bi-folding doors with PAS 24 Security accreditation.

With excellent pedigrees, the former Chairman and Managing Director of Sliders UK, along with its former Production Director, found another ideal board member and active director in Tony McHale. Known to many as the owner of AM Machinery Services (window machinery sales and maintenance), Tony is a giant in his field with solid relationships throughout the UK and abroad.

Thanks to Tony, the company has started production with an impressive stable of highly accurate and reliable machinery – the new fabrication set up boasts an SBZ150 machining centre and a DG142 saw, both from Elumatec.

Choosing supplier partners was easy for the team. Having considerable experience in bi-fold door production, it made sense to work with a leading supplier in this market – Debar. The Debar story is impressive and the Company is constantly improving their Dewall system. Cortizo was similarly a logical choice, being a progressive extruder who has also further developed the system and its extrusions.

EasyFold is the pinnacle of that development and by highlighting the latest developments, we believe the system has evolved into a remarkable product with many USPs for installers and builders.

“With a supply chain direct to site for the building trade, we offer one of the industry’s highest quality aluminium bi-fold doors at factory gate prices. All the kudos of a premium product at the most competitive rates.”

Who we work with

Small builders need modern, fashionable, well accredited bi-fold doors, manufactured to the highest quality and delivered to site, on time. Self-build and self-install customers need the assurance of quick deliveries and support with technical queries. With the EasyFold aluminium bifold door, the service provided by The Builders Choice is outstanding.

In such a competitive environment, keeping your business at the forefront of your trade requires a reliable supplier with a high-quality product. Finding both at very competitive prices isn’t easy. The Builders Choice exists to deliver that service.
