The Patriot is the national brand in the door manufacture branch developing successfully and dynamically at the construction market of Ukraine. We came up with the idea of creating a balanced door assembly designed beautifully and adapted to meet the customer’s requirements. At that moment we were a young distributing and developing company. Our major wasonly the wholesale trade of popular at that time Chinese production entry doors. Simpto Group company was our only supplier in China. Its production was represented at the Ukrainian and Russian marketsunder the trade name Imhotep. At the same time the other product was present on the market. These were domestic craft doors, which successchances were inequal to compete with the Chinese option.
The part of the buyers realizing that the main door function is still secutirty decided on a stable doors rather than aesthetic ones. In any case, everybody had to make a choice either aesthetics or strenght. Chinese doors won. Actually, during the first months of our work the necessity to create the worthy domestic (well are we Patriots!) product which would combine two principal and required characters – “Chinese aesthetics” and strength.In 2009 the experimental production was organized for this purpose, the aim of which was to create new designs and door stylings. We produced the mass designed models on the basis of operating Ukrainian enterprises. In 2010 this project was closed down after the development of the MED door series.
Today, however, we do not follow the generally accepted domestic producers’ approaches to create cheap and plain orexpensive and grandiose products. First of all, doors have to protect and have a thoughtful and stylish design as well. Trying to reduce the goods cost, it is unacceptable to lower the protective characteristic level, ignore the implementation aesthetics, thus literally multiply the price for any décor additions and the product design change. Therefore, our company got back tothe issueofour own production reconstruction in 2015taking into account the vast experience and knowledge of the entry doormarket specificity.The goal was obvious, the task was clearly defined and is solved by now.
The optimal combination of three main product characteristics is achieved in the Patriot and updated MED entry doors.
The indispensable step forward in design and technology matters is our working principle that influenced all of this. There are not any trivium in production process. Every design elementperforms its functions properly, and the smallest décor element matches the total design concept. The product cost is determined only by its assembly parts. The production process attitude establishes the quality and aesthetics. According to our customers, choosing PATRIOT doors, merely comparing them to other ones,was a simple-to-make decision.
