Want to know more about Ellard ltd?

Ellard has been a specialist manufacturer and distributor of drives and controls for industrial, commercial, and residential doors and shutters for over 60 years. Over this time we’ve built an exceptional reputation for the high quality of our motors and controls and this continues to be a key part of Ellard’s plan for the future. Our membership to the Door and Hardware Federation cements the high standard of our products and customer service. We also hold Investor in People status, and as such Ellard continually invests in the training and development of our staff, which enables us to give you the best quality service that we can. This drive for improvement led Ellard to move to new purpose built premises in September 2013, with dedicated areas for testing, development, and manufacture of products. We have recently taken ownership of a 600m² extension which houses the UK’s first motor assembly area for Industrial motors.

Dear Colleagues,

Following the recent acquisition of NRG Automation we have already commenced working on the strategy and organisation structure for the future so as to ensure continuity of supply and maintenance of service levels.

Therefore we are pleased to advice you of the following changes that will come into effect as of 2nd January.

I will become CEO of the Ellard-NRG Group with specific responsibilities for Strategic development, whilst also retaining control of some specific key accounts.

I will also focus on our exciting plans to introduce a new, state of the art ERP system that will improve greatly the customer experience.

Paul Connor, reporting to myself will take over the Managing Directors position at both Ellard and NRG, with responsibility for all day to day operations.

Paul and I will be working closely together to utilise fully the vast wealth of knowledge and industry experience we have gained over many years.

2019 will be an important year and we believe that these initial changes will create the platform for the group to progress further, improve its product offering and increase service levels

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself, Paul and the employees at both companies to wish you a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous 2019
