Origin Doors

Origin are the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of bespoke aluminium Bi-folding Doors and Windows

Origin’s products combine high grade aluminium with precision engineering to create functional and elegant products which are designed to last.

The Origin Story

When cousins Neil Ginger and Victoria Brocklesby recognised a gap in the UK market for high quality bi-folding doors back in 2002, they decided to be proactive and fill that gap. They decided to design, create and manufacture the highest quality bi-fold door system in the UK, and support this with uncompromising levels of service. Since then, Origin has continued to work tirelessly to create bespoke bi-folding doors that offer flawless design and functionality.

Neil and Victoria

Over the years, business growth and inevitable expansion has meant that Origin now offers the natural companions to doors - stylish aluminium windows. Built with the same level of care and elegance as found in Origin Bi-fold Doors, Origin’s range of windows offer something truly unique.

Origin has always been a family-run business and despite being established as the UK’s leading manufactures of bi-fold doors, and expanding globally to the US and Dubai, the family ethos remains very much at the heart of the company.

Quite simply, our vision is to transform the way families enjoy their home - from inside to out.

We aim to achieve our vision by:

Delivering goods to our customers on time and in full – every time.

Bringing innovative, elegant architectural products to market that offer genuine value.

Providing an unparalleled customer service experience.

Communicating honestly, helpfully and respectfully.

Creating a culture of inclusivity, family, kindness and trust.

Supporting the community

At Origin, it’s not all about business - we also like to support our local community by fundraising and attending local events. We hold Rennie Grove, a local charity, very close to our hearts and have been firm supporters of their cause since 2013. Rennie Grove provides 24/7 responsive care and support for adults and children diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illness and their families. Our staff regularly take part in fundraising events, like the Colour Blast and the London Marathon, and raise funds for Rennie Grove.

We also sponsor our local football team, Wycombe Wanderers, who play in League One, the third tier of English football. The club play at Adam’s Park, just up the road from Origin’s factory, and Origin are proud to sponsor their t-shirts as well as their retractable players tunnel.
