Amber Doors opens into new markets.
The company, part of Swedishbased world-leading heavy duty door manufacturer Cardo Door AB, has bought Crawford-Hafa and Faltec Doors, both based in Stoke-on-Trent.
The new organisation will have a turnover of more than pounds 40 million, making it the biggest UK firm in its sector.
Cardor, which is also Europe's leading supplier of dock-loading equipment, believe economy of scale achieved by merging the three firms will help further stimulate growth in the UK.
Managing director of the new organisation Bob Porter said: 'It will enable us to deliver a more effective sales approach in the industrial door and docking sectors.'
A spokesman for Amber, which has its headquarters in South Yorkshire with ten outlets nationally, said no jobs were expected through the merger.
