Doorsan is based in West Yorkshire and we are delighted to see that our county seems to be blooming at the moment.
Hosting the first part of the 2014 Tour De France Grand Depart in July was a major boost to the county with many visitors from all over the UK and Europe and beyond. Many of our local businesses and homeowners made the most of the event with welcoming decorations and messages for the riders and spectators. This is not the only sporting event that has raised the profile of Yorkshire recently. During the Commonwealth Games this summer we saw 46 medals won by athletes that were born or trained in Yorkshire, including gold medals for boxing, gymnastics, table tennis and triathlon. In fact, if Yorkshire were treated as a country, the achievement would have made seventh position in the medals table. This follows an impressive performance for Yorkshire during the 2012 Olympic Games.
Along with sport, Yorkshire has contributed significantly to popular music over the years and Leeds Festival was on the television recently featuring headline act Arctic Monkeys, who are originally from Sheffield. This is the Northern partner event of the Reading Festival, which both take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend each year.
Yorkshire people are known for being proud of their county and it is true, amongst the Doorsan team we are a proud bunch and we are pleased to see our local area appearing in the news with a positive message.
One of the stereotypes for Yorkshire people is their friendliness. Our customer service team spend a lot of time speaking to customers about doors and they often comment on how friendly and helpful we are, so in this case we are pleased to fulfil the Yorkshire stereotype.
