Meet the Arridge Garage Doors Team

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

We supply garage doors, automation kits and garage door spares to anywhere in the UK and abroad.

Our company has grown rapidly during the last few years and moved to their Head Office in Oswestry in 2004. In 2007 our company achieved ISO9001 accreditation. Arridge Garage Doors is the only on-line garage door supplier / installer with full ISO9001 accreditation.

This was particularly pleasing as it showed the commitment and balance of skills of all the team to achieve this internationally recognised status.

Being a medium size business we pride ourselves on being able to treat all of our valued customers with the individuality their custom deserves. We have a team of four in our Head Office office – and here they are:-


Bob Costain

Bob Costain - Bob joined us in March 2013 having had many years experience in technical sales, IT and hands on building and building maintenance work. Bob got upto speed very quickly with the technical side of the job due to his years of practical experience.
An Everton supporter, Bob loves motorsport, enjoys eating and drinking.

Sheila Kitchen Sheila Kitchin – Sheila is Accounts Manager and has been with the company since 2005. Hers will probably be the voice you hear first as she answers the telephone. Sheila has the uncanny knack of resolving customer's queries with our suppliers and manufacturers. She didn't earn the nickname “The Silent Rottweiler” for nothing. She has a daughter, Jennie, who works in publishing in Southampton and her other daughter, Sally, who is currently travelling and working in Australia. Her claim to fame is that she once beat Sally at Badminton although she won't tell us how long ago this was. Sheila is very placid and a valuable member of the team.
Irina Arridge

Irina Arridge – Company Director. Irina looks after all the Marketing, IT and the legal aspects of the business. For reasons known only to herself – is known as “Head of Global”. Born in Russia (yes she supports Chelsea!!) she qualified as a Solicitor with a degree in English Law in 2003. Her hobbies include Wine Tasting - for which she has won competitions and ice-skating.

Mark Arridge Mark Arridge – Managing Director and founder of the business. Mark has years of experience in the garage door industry and in the early years of the business not only supplied but fitted the doors. He enjoys Rugby Union, cycling, curries, stand-up comedy and the odd pint. Mark is always willing to offer technical help and advice both prior to build, during build and after build to ensure the customer gets the correct door, auto kit etc. “We are a small, friendly and focused business, offering 1st class personal service and branded products at discounted prices” says Mark.

One thing our customers can be sure of is that each team member has the same aim: “to give first class service to and ensure complete satisfaction for all our valuable customers”.
