Strongdor is dedicated to shining the light on their hard-working team who help keep the company known for impeccable customer service. In this article, we hear Wayne’s insights into what it’s really like working for Strongdor.


What is your role at Strongdor? 

"Having an extensive background in the door industry working as an engineer through to manager, I joined Strongdor as a Business Development Manager based on the road visiting potential and new customers. As I previously used Strongdor as my steel door supplier, it gives me great confidence to honestly introduce the business given my past experiences. You’ve got to have trust in the product you’re trying to sell and I have no issues doing that.

It is still a bit surreal being a brand advocate, but I enjoy every minute."


What do you love about working for Strongdor? 

"I love how nothing is too much trouble, everyone has time for each other no matter what department they are in. That’s what I really noticed when being a customer, everyone contributes to the company’s success, working as a team, no matter which department you are in. 

 Team effort is certainly the best thing about Strongdor, having links in our branding and foundation really shows me that the development in the company’s future is positive and exciting."


How long have you worked at Strongdor?

 "I have been with Strongdor for just over 10 weeks now and it has flown by!"


If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? 

"My dad was a paratrooper, so I always had a passion to learn to skydive, but I’m not too sure about that now, I’m too old! Maybe I’ll take up my other goal and learn piano instead.."


What's something most people don't know about you? 

"I’ve always been competitive in sports as I used to play Rugby League from a young age and competed up until I was 22. 

 I was also born down south in Aldershot, but I’ve always classed myself as a true Yorkshire Man!"


What's your favourite motto/quote? 

"Every day is a school day, we never stop learning no matter how old we get"
