Over 2.5 million miles and counting!

Gliderol driver John Pattle has estimated that he has clocked up over 2.5 million miles in his career and counting.

In all John, who is originally from Manchester, has actually served over 27 years with Gliderol. John’s career path was not one of going straight into the industry.  John started work in a local garage close to home before making the decision to move to Sunderland and start work in the pub trade for Vaux Brewery.

By 1990 John had found his way to Gliderol as a driver, a role he has made a career from ever since. He is a familiar face to all Gliderol customers. John has delivered doors to every part of the UK and Ireland for Gliderol and enjoys meeting new and old faces every week.

John has been married to Vivienne for 30 years and together they enjoy walking and spend many weekends on trails laid out by the National Trust.

John said:
 “It’s a great place to work with a group of wonderful people and the years and miles have flown by.”
Commenting on the milestone, Gliderol Managing Director, Roy Sinclair, added:
“We’re proud to have dedicated members of staff like John who have been with us for a lengthy time and contributed to the continuing success of the business, we have six members of staff who have already clocked up more than 25 years here and many more with 10 years plus.
“It is these key members of staff, through the ups and downs of the last few decades, which have ensured Gliderol has maintained its position as a leading manufacturer and distributor of garage and industrial doors”.
