John Graham, Managing Director of DSS Automatic Doors explained the decision to invest:

“As an industry leader with a UK-wide reach and impressive 2016 growth of 23.5%, we wanted to ensure continuous improvement in terms of our workforce and to create a bespoke training facility onsite to support and pioneer staff development.

“We have a strong sales pipeline and a number of prestigious orders on our books, including what I believe is the largest automatic door order placed in Scotland this year. With high expectations for the future, we have taken the decision to investment in our staff.

“We aim to continue to expand the business and will soon be looking to fill several new positions across the company. The ability to provide our staff with a wide range of professional training options including product training, customer care, ADSA testing and health and safety training, will give DSS a real industry advantage.

“It makes our offering more desirable so we can attract the top professional talent, gives our staff increased job satisfaction and allows them to push for individual success. DSS expects our staff to lead the industry and this investment is a clear indication of the high regard that we place upon skill and competences.

“As an example of the excellent standards we encourage and expect our staff to achieve, Martin Hanley a DSS reactive service engineer for the Scottish region was only the fourth engineer in the UK to score 100% on a recent BSEN 16005 exam. John Cheshire, a DSS engineer based in Manchester, achieved 99% in the same exam.”

DSS recently welcomed industry body Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) who made use of the new facilities.

Dave Hill, ADSA President commented:

“Having the opportunity to work in partnership with an ADSA member and deliver training in new and excellent facilities has proven a great success for the association producing very impressive results.

“It has been a pleasure to utilise a modern, comfortable training environment alongside a dedicated team in DSS Automatic Doors. The experience has been highly positive for our trainer and those attending the course. We hope to be back again soon!”
