More defence estates contracts for Jewers Doors


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Jewers Doors Ltd
: 10 June, 2009  (Company News)
UK-based Jewers Doors has a long history of supplying its Esavian aircraft
hangar doors for RAF bases.
Recently, Jewers Doors secured three further contracts for RAF Coningsby, RAF Waddington and RAF Valley via the MoD procurement arm, Defence Estates, and major contractors.

RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire is well known as the base from which Bomber
Command launched the 'Dambusters' raid in World War Two. Now, it is the
RAF's foremost fighter base from where the new Typhoon aircraft will operate.
Jewers Doors was awarded a contract to design, build and install its Esavian
hangar doors for the new eight-bay maintenance hangar. Two sets of high
security doors have been supplied, each spanning an opening 54 metres wide
by 8.5 metres high.

Jewers Doors is also designing, manufacturing and installing Esavian doors at
RAF Waddington home to RAF Air Command surveillance and
reconnaissance assets and another station with a long history. For this contract, Jewers Doors is supplying six sets of Esavian doors measuring 48 metres wide by 11 metres high, replacing doors that are 60 years old.

RAF Valley, on the island of Anglesey, is one of the busiest airfields in the UK
and since 1951 has been a Flying Training School. Most recently, Hawk 128
Advanced Jet Trainer aircraft have been adopted for pilot training and hangars
are being built for these aircraft. As part of a multi-million pound contract
awarded to VT Group for aircraft maintenance, logistics and provision of
assets for flying training, Jewers Doors will supply two sets of Esavian doors
measuring 15 metres wide by 5.5 metres high.

Managing director, Chris Jewers, says: 'These are prestigious contracts for us
and reflect the excellent reputation Jewers Doors has with Defence Estates and
RAF bases gained over many years.'

Jewers Doors is a family-owned business with three brothers as directors
Chris Jewers (managing director), Mark Jewers (Phoenix director) and Jonathan
Jewers (Esavian director). It was started in 1983 by their father, Nigel Jewers,
who maintains a keen interest in the engineering side of the business.
From modest beginnings 25 years ago, Jewers Doors now undertakes
contracts throughout the world for governments, armed forces and private
companies.

Jewers Doors designs, manufactures and installs aircraft hangar doors under its
Esavian trade name and in recent years has supplied several sets of doors for
the new super hangars for A380 aircraft.

Industrial doors are marketed with the Phoenix brand name. In 2008, the
Phoenix team completed its largest contract by manufacturing and installing
350 sets of Swift bifold and Osprey multi-leaf folding doors for garages,
workshops and stores buildings at Colchester Garrison, Essex, England.
The first of a new range of Phoenix doors was launched in September 2008
and has established new standards for speed of operation, safety and
minimising impact on the environment.
