Meet The Team

Arridge Garage Doors Limited was established in 1989 in Oswestry, North Shropshire.

Arridge Garage Doors Ltd is the only internet garage door discounter with ISO9001 accreditation. Established in 1989 as a local supply and fit company, we were one of the very first suppliers of garage doors on the internet from 1999. We now offer a nationwide installation service. We pride ourselves in accurate, unbiased and clear technical help before, during and after purchase.

Mark Arridge

Mark Arridge: Managing Director, founder, sales person, technical expert and all round bottle washer. Taught design and technology prior to starting the business. Fitted garage doors for many years before the company became web-based. Interested in Rugby Union, but would not consider playing it these days, due to his gammy shoulder and dodgy hip. Likes cycling, saunas, mountain walking, curry, stand-up comedy and the odd pint. Mark is a stickler for giving the customer maximum technical help and advice. “The door has got to be right” is his mantra.

In an attempt to join the real world, he recently completed a City & Guilds course in plumbing. He enjoys fly fishing across the UK and in countries far, far away. He also enjoys drinking beer and talking about classic cars. He prides himself on explaining the complicated world of garage doors by comparing garage door manufacturers to car brands.

Always keen to help and spend time on the phone helping customers choose the correct garage door according to their requirements, sizes and budget.
