History of Gate-A-Mation

Gate-A-Mation’s founder started in the gate industry back in 1983, when working for another company that dabbled in powered automatic electric gates.

The UK market was tiny with a handful of home based manufacturers that could not compete with imported products. This allowed the Italian firms to establish a foothold with the forerunners setting up dealership networks that had some influence over training and product installation.

In 1988 Gate-A-Mation was set up and soon became a flagship promotor of the industry, building upon individual designs that were created to be reliable and last and not based around an inadequate budget just to gain an order!

We continue to stand by our design code, resisting cheaper, short lived, unreliable paths that can now be blamed for many incidents including damage to property as well as personal injury and fatalities. Although losing out on price with many installations, especially to the unexperienced purchaser, the work load upon the service and repair department continues to grow. Inheriting others work, from dissatisfied customers, remains our largest growing sector of business.

Since 1992 the Gate-A-Mation design guide continues to be updated and published with a Safety App created in 2015 to help educate and promote safer gate systems for all.

To date with over 15,000 systems included on our current database, makes us one of the largest and most successful gate specialist companies in the industry.

 I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the amazing help and support which you have provided to us all. You have been exceptionally knowledgeable, prompt and very responsive to all of our mad questions 

  I’d just like to thank you and your team for taking care of our gates so well during the past 22 years! We’ve rarely had problems but if we have they’ve always been sorted out swiftly. I’m sure we’ll be using you again in the future, but thanks for all your help. 

 I just wanted to take to time to write to you and let you know what a great team Michael, John and Chris are. It was a pleasure having them around for the week and to watch their craftsmanship and professionalism, always with a smile (with the exception of when Chris received an unwanted gift from a feathered friend from above!). It is a great comfort having the gates back in working order, and in better order than it's been for years! So a big thank you to the whole team, for a great job very well done. 

 The whole process from placing our order to handover was done very professionally. Changes to the spec were handled quickly and efficiently 

 I would like to pass my thanks to Gate-A-Mation for dealing with my stolen ‘zapper’ issue in such an exemplary and timely manner. The two ladies I spoke to at the office and the two installation guys who visited me this evening all provided excellent customer service and got my zappers reprogrammed within 12 hours of my mercy call. Customer service at its best - thanks so much 

 Gate is all fixed. Your guys were excellent. Thanks.
