The Jain family has invested a further £2.1million in Avocet Hardware – taking the total invested since it bought the Brighouse-based company out of administration in February 2012 to £10.6million.

This latest investment is aimed at ensuring stock levels across the company’s door and window, ABS high security locks, and builder hardware divisions are high enough to ensure product availability and delivery.

Dr Tinkle Jain, director of Avocet Hardware, said: “Since buying Avocet we have invested heavily in order to place the company in a position where we can legitimately lay claim to being the leading player in the home window and door security market.

“We now have the team, the products and the product availability to confidently state that the Avocet house is well and truly in order.”

Avocet has taken steps to re-establish its name and its reputation including exhibiting at two of its industry’s major exhibitions for the first time since administration and being recruited by the Neighbourhood and Home Network Watch as its primary home security sponsor.

“We’ve now been involved with Avocet Hardware for over a year and a half and are well on our way to adding it to our growing list of success stories,” added Dr Jain.
