Automatic Door Suppliers Association names new Chair

June 11, 2024


Automatic Door Suppliers Association

The Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ASDA) has elected Stuart Dale, Key Account Sales Director for FAAC Entrance Solutions UK, as the new Chair of the Association.

He will undertake the role, providing strategic guidance and input to support the key deliverables of the association over the next two years.

Extending support

Dale takes over from Mark Ayton, Managing Director of Record UK who previously held the position.

Dale has worked in the automatic door industry for almost 20 years, having previously worked in sales within the engineering sector.

He has been a member of the ADSA executive committee for the past five years – an involvement which he considers has prepared him for this new role.

“The executive committee provides leadership and guidance to the association to ensure that it operates effectively and in line with its objectives.

“In taking on the role of chair, I hope to extend my support to the leadership team and advocate in the interests of those involved in the automatic door industry – manufacturers, suppliers and engineers,” said Dale.

Tapping into knowledge

Dale, who is from Manchester, trained as an apprentice electrical engineer at Weir Pumps and attended Openshaw Technical College, gaining industry standard qualifications.

A role in service sales with the Crawford Group followed, before a move into the automatic door industry with Mandor Engineering in 2004.

He joined Record UK in 2010 as Regional Sales Manager and was Sales Director with March Doors before joining FAAC UK almost 10 years ago.

“We look forward to working with Stuart and tapping into his knowledge of sales and marketing to ensure that the association continues to meet the needs of its members, its customers and end users,” said Ken Price, ASDA MD.
