Originally established in 1952, producing sliding door track, Ellard diversified into the Industrial Door market in the late 90’s, initially offering a wide range of tube motors.

Ellard increased the scope of products and began it’s long standing relationship with a number of exclusive suppliers in China. The relationship with our suppliers is a key to our success and we directly employ a team in China to control quality and development projects.  Further products were introduced as the company diversified into the Gate and Barrier market, securing an exclusive distribution agreement with V2 of Italy, a well known and established supplier. To complete the range Ellard now offers automatic systems for sliding door entrances and powered personal doors.

Today Ellard’s turnover is approaching £12m with further expansion planned in the future through organic growth and acquisition.
