OUR TEAM

Each of our team members is a specialist in their respective fields, which means they give our clients the best advice. We pride ourselves on the fact that we listen and respond to each and every one of our valued customers.

MARTIN THATCHER

(Director) With a great many years of fitting experience under his belt, Martin now no longer gets his hands dirty and is our dedicated garage door surveyor! His knowledge of actually how the doors are fitted and operate is invaluable when assessing what can and can’t work for you in your garage. In his spare time, Martin loves to ride his motorcycle and enjoys nothing more than whizzing around Silverstone on a track day. Also, he enjoys a round of Golf when he can and playing cards with his daughter!

JAMIE TAYLOR

(Director) Jamie is our go-to man for pretty much everything, his range of experience in this industry is vast and with his patient, calm personality he has a real knack of being able to assist customers with technical enquiries over the phone. He is definitely an outdoor man and enjoys walks with his family and dog and working on his veggie garden with camping and festivals being right up his street. He is also a keen Bristol City fan and regularly attends their home games with his son.

DEBBIE THATCHER

(Accounts Manager) Debbie is Martin’s wife and deals with the accounts and marketing of our business. Over the years she has picked up much knowledge of our product range and is a real help to those new customers who need some guidance on what may be right for them. She has a new found passion for yoga and spends her time away from work ‘attempting’ to cook her family healthy, organic meals whilst trying to squeeze in a spa day or two with her friends!

TRACEY WHITAKER

(Office Manager) Tracey is a little gem who came to us some years ago with already 20 years’ experience in our industry. With always a smile, she keeps the office in ship-shape and there is little that she doesn’t know about garage doors. She likes to keep fit and walks to work each day (rain or shine). She loves getting away with her husband for relaxing weekend breaks and seems to have a skill for finding incredible little bargains! When they can, they like to go and watch their favourite football team.

SIMON WILLIAMS

(Pre-fabricated Sales Manager) Simon is a big man with a big heart who is always willing to go that extra mile to work around our customers’ busy schedules. He not only efficiently deals with all of our pre-fabricated garage sales but he can fit and repair garage doors too. Simon’s passion is cars; at home he is always tinkering with his latest addition and you will often find him and his wife marshalling on race days at Castle Coombe. Always busy, his holidays are spent in France renovating his cottage there.

PAUL MESSER

(Fitter/Administrator) Paul has been a member of the team for a long time now. He initially came to us as an experienced fitter but, due to his friendly, fun personality, has recently had his role altered so that he spends some of his time fitting and some of his time in the office assisting Tracey and Debbie. Again, his knowledge in the field has been a great asset in the office when dealing with new customers and diagnosing problems over the phone. He is an avid reader of history and politics but also enjoys spending his down time with his son gaming too.

TONY HAMILTON

(Fitter) Tony is the longest serving member of the team and our ‘Lead’ fitter. He has built his career in the garage door industry and this is apparent in his workmanship and product (old and new) knowledge. When not spending time with his large family and dogs, he enjoys relaxing watching F1 motor sport and has a great love of shooting and field sports

RYAN GREENWOOD

(Fitter) Ryan is the youngest member of our team but by no means less valued. He came on board in 2013 as a Fitter’s Mate and has steadily worked his way up to becoming a competent fitter in his own right. He also has found he has a real skill with the use of uPVC for finishing, so when there’s lots of plastic work, he’s our man! When not at work, he, of course spends time out with his friends but he is also rather renowned locally for his BMX skills and tricks.

ROSS WINCHCOMBE

(Fitter) Ross is our newest addition but, again, he comes with many years’ experience in the game. With his good sense of humour, he has slotted in really well with the rest of our team and brings with him new ideas and tips. Himself and wife are kept busy at home with their young daughter but he still manages to find time keep himself in shape at his local gym, get out with friends, go to the cinema and watch his favourite football team, Arsenal. He is also an expert ‘Mixologist’ (cocktail maker to you and I!) so is a handy asset for his friends’ social functions.

COLIN COOMBES

(Fitter’s Mate) Colin is Deb’s dad and with a background in engineering and welding, he is a great asset to us. He can turn his hand to anything and has the ‘old school’ view of working practices, being always willing to ‘muck-in’ and help everybody out no matter what the task. Colin spends much of his spare time helping others; he was the secretary of the local Royal British Legion but stepped down from that role after many years to devote his time arranging social functions to raise money for charity (these functions often involve him singing as the entertainment, which suits him well!). He also enjoys getting out in the fresh air and you will often see him and his wife out walking rather than using the car.
