10-10-10 for GEZE UK
Just a year after its parent company celebrated its 150th successful year, GEZE UK, the UK’s leading manufacturer of door and window control systems, is itself celebrating a hat trick of anniversaries. Ten of the company’s staff have received 10 years’ long service awards in the 10th anniversary year of its Lichfield headquarters.
GEZE first opened a UK base in 1988 in Chelmsford, Essex, to co-ordinate the distribution of its manual door closers. This was followed by a facility in Tamworth, Staffordshire in 1998 to supply and install automatic door systems. In 2003, the decision was made to bring the two operations together under one roof. Lichfield was chosen as a base, thanks to its skilled workforce and strategic location in the heart of the midlands, close to the main arterial routes.
A new purpose built facility was built to house the rapidly growing company, and operations started in 2004. Now, 10 years on, the company employs more than 200 people across the UK and has six regional offices.
Speaking about the anniversaries, Kaz Spiewakowski, managing director of GEZE UK, said: “Our employees are key to our long term success. We invest in their skills and personal development and work hard to ensure we provide a happy working environment – something which I believe is why we are celebrating so many 10 years long service awards in one go!”
