Hufcor®: Folding Doors on a Global Scale.
The Hufcor® brand of movable walls and folding doors encompasses the globe with hundreds of experienced distributors and regionalized manufacturing plants second to no other supplier. Hufcor recognizes that other operable partition suppliers have the ability to export their products globally from one or two local manufacturing sites. But for global design teams, consultants, contractors and clients looking for a global supplier to service the needs of local markets and regional product requirements, only Hufcor with 14 subsidiary and licensed manufacturing plants, and it's extended network of direct sales and distribution partners is organized to meet growing global requirements.
The benefits of working with the only true globally manufactured brand of operable partitions are many.
1. Hufcor and our affiliated licensees operate 14 fully functional manufacturing facilities.
Our nearest competitor has two fully functional plants. Many others utilize sub-assembly facilities, taking prefabricated frames and assembling inside a storage garage or small warehouse. The Hufcor plants are supported by engineering staff, material purchasing, manufacturing managers and skilled assemblers all supported by local customer service staff. We don't allow assembly of knockdown kits of products shipped from a couple of locations. We control quality standards required for lean manufacturing and performance based products. Each Hufcor facility is part of the local culture and economies where we manufacture.
2. Hufcor serves the product design styles of the local regions.
Over the decades, some regions of the world prefer a certain style of panel construction. For example, the US prefers welded steel panel frames. Middle East and Asia Pacific markets prefer elaborate, decorative face materials (as shown below) in lieu of more standard textile finishes. European markets prefer bolted aluminum frames with board materials faces, veneers, LDF/MDF laminates, etc. You get the idea.
Hufcor's manufacturing facilities cater to the preferred style of panel constructions to meet the design needs of local architectural preferences and materials. If a supplier does not have regional movable wall panel and performance styles of construction, they truly are not a global brand that can translate your concept into a localized successful result.
3. Hufcor facilities are located close to populated markets to reduce the carbon footprint of delivering large, heavy panels to jobsites.
Let's face it, operable partitions are big and heavy. They take some energy to ship them around the world. Yet, with fourteen manufacturing sites, Hufcor by far serves more of the world's markets with products that can be sourced locally, an obvious reduction of carbon. The facilities are located in: USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Gemany, France, Spain, Russia, South Africa, United Arab Emerates, China, Malaysia, and Australia.
4. Hufcor provides coordinated design assistance that meets consistency standards for global customers.
Hufcor and our affiliates are poised to serve the needs of global customers' brand standards. Hundreds of recognizable global companies, from hotel chains, restaurant chains, education facilities, high tech firms and others include "Hufcor" as one of their specified, preferred or approved brands. Our manufacturing consistency and localized delivery serves the needs of these companies as these global icons expand into new markets, protect their own brand standards with proven and acceptable products, and grow.
