Huddersfield’s Dortech wins Shooting Star crown

Dortech Group has been crowned the winner of Huddersfield Town’s Shooting Stars Award – created in association with Lucas Lee.

The award win comes after it was announced last month that the company’s glazing maintenance division is forecast to almost double its turnover to £1m in 2019, which will take Dortech to a £10m organisation overall. The business’s expansion – which comes as a result of a growing reputation and complex market conditions – has also kickstarted a recruitment drive and a £200,000 investment in the team’s Huddersfield factory.

Group MD James Sutherland said: “We’re so pleased that our contribution to the local business scene has been recognised though this homegrown award scheme.

“Instead of shying away from the UK’s uncertain political and economic backdrop, we’ve taken strategic steps to ensure that our organisation continues to thrive, and it’s so rewarding to see the team’s efforts being noticed.”

The firm’s maintenance division is the fastest growing part of the company – with more projects, team members and technological investment forecast for the coming year.

Chris Lee, MD of Lucas Lee, said: “The set up at Dortech is fantastic and with great potential to expand as the business continues to grow. I wish James and all the team the best of success for the future and look forward to potentially working with them in the future.”

Sean Jarvis, commercial director of Huddersfield Town, said: “What James and the team have done at Dortech is fantastic, especially in this economic climate. It was a pleasure to meet the whole team and speak to so many town fans who all speak very highly of their boss, James and the company. I look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming games.”

Established a quarter of a century ago, Huddersfield-based Dortech has been designing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining bespoke glazing solutions ever since, and has worked on a catalogue of project with brands such as the NHS, Sheffield Business Park and the Victoria Mills residential complex in Shipley.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £31.50 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
