Meet the Team

Arridge Garage Doors Limited was established in 1989.

We supply garage doors, garage door automation kits and garage door spares to every part of the UK.

The company has grown rapidly during the last few years and is the leading on-line garage door discounter priding itself in unbiased and accurate technical help, service, deliveries and installation.

The company is ISO9001 accredited of which it is very proud. It is one of the few (if not the only) Internet Based Garage Door companies to have this recognition of its rigorous high standards in all aspects of the business.

This was particularly pleasing as it showed the commitment and balance of skills of all the team to achieve this internationally recognised status.

Being a medium size business we pride ourselves on being able to treat all of our valued customers with the individuality their custom deserves.

Mark Arridge

Mark Arridge – Managing Director and founder of the business. Mark has years of experience in the garage door industry and in the installation of the different types of garage doors. He is interested in Rugby Union and actively supports the local Rugby Club; he also loves mountain walking, cycling and an odd pint. Mark is always willing to offer technical help and advice both prior to build, during build and after build to ensure the customer gets the correct door, automation kit etc.

Sheila Kitchen

Sheila Kitchin – Sheila is Accounts Manager and has been with the company since 2004. Hers will probably be the voice you hear first as she answers the telephone. Sheila has the uncanny knack of resolving customer's queries with our suppliers and manufacturers. She didn't earn the nickname “Our Silent Rottweiler” for nothing. She has a daughter, Jenny, who lives in Southampton and her other daughter, Sally, has moved to Australia. Her claim to fame is that she once beat Sally at Badminton although she won't tell us how long ago this was. Sheila is very calm and organised member of the team.

Bob Costain

Bob Costain - The new member of our team. Bob has had many years experience in the building industry ranging from house building and commercial construction to a long stint as hands on maintenance manager of a historic listed hotel. Amongst other interests loves Motorsport (watching not competing unfortunately), enjoys eating and drinking. Supports Everton - but please don't hold that against him.

Irina Arridge

Irina Arridge – Company Director. Irina looks after all the Marketing, IT and the legal aspects of the business. For reasons known only to herself – is known as “Head of Global”. Born in Russia (yes she supports Chelsea!!) she qualified as a Solicitor with a degree in English Law in 2003. Her hobbies include Wine Tasting, for which she has won competitions. Irina's contribution to the business is invaluable (or so she tells us!!)

One thing our customers can be sure of is that each team member has the same aim: “to give first class service to and ensure complete satisfaction for all our valuable customers”.
