David Cerquella, MD of Gilgen Door Systems
Leading automatic and industrial door specialists, Gilgen Door Systems, has centralised its UK production facility in Alfreton, Derbyshire and announced a number of senior appointments to its management team as part of an ambitious growth strategy. 
David Cerquella has been appointed Managing Director of Gilgen’s UK operation. David was previously General Manager of the company’s service division were he was responsible for the successful launch of the company’s Safeguard maintenance scheme. 
Prior to joining Gilgen, David held a number of senior management positions with Niscayah, a market leading supplier of integrated security solutions.
Other key appointments include Colin Cufley, Financial Director, David Anderson, National Sales Manager and Mike James, General Manager of After Sales. The new appointments come into immediate effect and add considerable weight of experience to Gilgen’s management team.

Gilgen has completed the centralisation of its new door production at its facility in Alfreton and has invested heavily in enhanced production capabilities designed to address customer demand for both Automatic Doors and Industrial Doors. The upgrade of its Alfreton facility will also provide improved order management and quality control leading to higher levels of customer service.
Commenting on the developments, David Cerquella says he is excited by the potential to reinvigorate the business through a more customer focussed approach and new centralised structure. 
“We have some fantastic assets including a great reputation for well engineered solutions, highly experienced people and a superb service infrastructure. With the new management team in place and centralised production at our Alfreton facility we have the opportunity to address some of the market challenges, develop our employees’ skills set and focus on improving customer experience”.
 Whilst seeing the need to evolve the approach to market, David’s background in service delivery networks gives him the advantage of seeing things from the customers’ point of view. 
“I believe that by placing service and customer led solutions at the heart of everything we do, we will differentiate our offering and unlock the true growth potential of the business”.
