sara LBS has appointed Tony Saunders to lead sales as it continues to grow within the UK market. The company is already recognised as a leading supplier and installer of premium loading bay solutions and high speed industrial doors. Tony will work closely with the existing sales team to continue expansion into industries such as pharmaceutical, food & beverage production, automotive and warehouse & distribution, whilst continuing to grow the company's national maintenance and repair network.
For over 30 years sara LBS has been supplying loading bay and industrial door solutions into the UK market. It supplies premium quality products which are proven to improve reliability, efficiency and safety. Its flagship 'Sprint' range of high-speed doors are the fastest roller shutter doors on the market and feature an innovative, 'non-contact' safety beam which detects obstructions and halts the door, preventing a collision.
Tony comments: "sara LBS is already a favoured supplier for several UK based blue chip companies – including household names from the automotive, retail and pharmaceutical industries. Combined, the existing sales team has decade's worth of experience in working directly with end-users, specifiers and architects to design and supply bespoke, solution lead products.
"My goal is to harvest this experience and knowledge. To make sure that every potential customer that contacts us understands that specifying premium products will lead to long term, proven advantages in terms of reduced maintenance and servicing costs; reduced energy costs; and reduced risk to personnel and product."
In addition to the design and supply of new loading bay and industrial door products, sara LBS has also developed a nationwide maintenance and repair service. It employs CSCS trained engineers that are available 24/7 across the country for routine maintenance and emergency repairs – even on non-sara LBS products.
Tony continues: "Sale and installation is only the first step in the journey to efficient, reliable service life. We understand that having installed a premium product, end-users want to have the comfort of continued support from the original point of contact. This is why we have developed our own maintenance service, rather than employing contractors.
"Our engineers are fully qualified and their vans are fully stocked with a comprehensive range of spare parts to ensure that most issues are resolved at the first call out. The service is available as a rolling contract or for one-off repairs and is available on all industrial doors and loading bay products on the UK market."
