A year of change

As we come to the end of 2016 I look back and reflect on a year that brought us significant change and unprecedented events: Britain votes to leave the EU, Donald Trump wins the American presidency and Leicester City take the premiership title at odds of 5000/1 – who would have predicted that?

Here at GfA 2016 was once again a positive year with year-on-year sales growth, new products brought to market and our social media presence further expanded with the launch of our GfA UK You Tube channel which has already had more than 2,300 visits and is now being used by customers around the world.

Looking ahead to 2017

Our Industry is becoming increasingly high- tech and for those companies who have invested in new technology and endeavour to stay ahead of the curve there will be opportunities to apply specialist applications to tackle increasingly complex challenges - doors equipped for terrorist attacks and doors, drive equipment and controls designed for the harshest of environments.

As always from GfA UK you can expect support for these specialist opportunities through innovation from our European supplier base and specialist technical help from our experienced team of engineers. The legacy of 2016 is one of change, and as we look forward to 2017 we are faced with uncertainty and challenges but all we can do is plan for what we can control. Being a natural optimist with over 25-years experience in the industry I’m sure we all will adapt and rather than merely survive – thrive!

Christmas closing and last deliveries in 2016

Our offices will be closed for Christmas from 1pm on Friday 23rd December 2016 and will reopen on Tuesday 3rd January 2017.
