Are you aware Ellard sell an extensive range of Gate and Barrier Automation?


Our Gate and Barrier Automation solutions are ideal for both residential and industrial applications.  Combining technology and innovation Ellard’s product range make automation easier and safer than ever before.

Originally established in 1952, Ellard produced sliding door equipment. Since then our catalogue of products, supporting the door and gate installation industry has grown dramatically.

ISO9001 and full DHF members, Ellard have 38 permanent staff members, many of which are formally mechanically and electrically qualified.

Ellard supply and support almost £10m worth of product each and every year.

Whether it be a replacement transmitter, industrial door motor, high speed control system, or a complete automatic gate drive and safety control system, Ellard has become a one stop shop for door and gate manufacturers and installers alike.

Jonathan Aldred, Business Development Manager, has been responsible for all aspects of the Gate, Barrier and Access Control sales for Ellard. He had this to say:

“When I started working with Ellard 5 years ago, sales of automatic gate and barrier products began. With sole distribution agreements with V2 (V2 spa, Italy) for the UK and Ireland, Gate, Barrier and Access control sales now contribute almost 15% of Ellard annual turnover.

We still have a long way to go in what is a very competitive market, but I firmly believe that with Ellard’s ‘can do’ attitude and the level of dedication given by all members of the Ellard team, we will continue to drive this business in the right direction. For us to be successful, our customers need to be successful. This is why every sale we make is fully supported by myself, and by the rest of the team.”
