    Door Emporium was established in Tauranga as a subsidiary of Door Styles (Hamilton) to support the need for a quality door pre-hanger during the building boom in the late 1990’s.  It’s location was a small factory at 113 Maleme St Greerton.

    In 2004 Door Emporium moved to a larger premises at 100 Maleme Street.

    In 2006 a dedicated focus was undertaken to establish a balanced portfolio of Residential, Commercial and Industrial clients.  This business initiative occurred in parallel with a reduction in the supply to Group House Builders  resulting from high volume, low margin competitors fighting aggressively for the group house market.  During this period Door Emporium grew significant rapport with the Boutique Residential and Specialised Commercial contractors.

     

    Like all our peers in the building industry, 2008 through 2009 was a difficult time.  Building consents dropped significantly and builders turned their skills toward anything that could keep them going.  Demand for Doors dropped and we re-evaluated what we could do to help us maintain a point of difference.  The result was our Cellar Door range which led us to the full “Creative Door” focus and the release at the 2009 Auckland Homeshow.
