A firm appointed by Gedling Homes to provide automatic doors at one of their retirement complexes has made three new appointments.
Mansfield-based TIS has appointed Alistair Murray, Marc Jago and Craig Kennedy who will form the new Auto Doors division at the firm
Though TIS have always offered automatic doors, the installation, service and maintenance was previously delivered by a strategic partner.
Managing director of combined services, James Twigg, said: “I am absolutely delighted to have both Alistair and Marc join TIS at a very exciting time for the business. They can both see the future vision and direction for TIS and they cannot wait to get started.
“Whilst we have offered automatic door services through our partners previously we have never had control over the quality of our delivery and we have never focused on it properly. This is a huge step forward for TIS and we are all thrilled to see what they can bring to our full suite of security systems services.
“We have confidence and belief in the growth and potential of the new division which will enable our own team to be in full control of the delivery of our internal objectives. This investment is expected to provide the combined services division with the first-class support in service delivery of automatic doors it has craved.”
Alistair Murray has worked in the automatic door industry for 27 years, his career taking him from apprentice to contracts manager.
The introduction of this new division will support some of its current clients, such as Sheffield City Council and Nottingham City Homes, who have been introducing door automation across many of their sites.
TIS have many projects planned for the next 12 months, including automation to the Scooter Stores at Keverne Court and Hazelhurst Gardens for Nottingham City Homes (NCH), automatic doors at Seagrave Court (Gedling Homes) and the servicing of the entire NCH auto door stock in February 2017.
TIS are specialists in the installation, repair and planned preventative maintenance of all types of automatic doors, including automatic sliding doors, automatic swing doors, aluminium manual doors and timber and steel fire doors.
