Abloy UK is proud to congratulate three of its valued team members for reaching new milestones in their Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) qualifications.
Lisa O’Flynn, Channel Development Manager for the Finance and Government sectors, has achieved the Level 1 GAI and is now a fully qualified Dip GAI team member. Lisa studied for three years towards her qualification, and now joins this small and exclusive club of qualified Architectural Ironmongers.
Duncan Rigby, Specification Development Manager, has achieved a ‘Distinction’ at Level 2 earning him the GAI Certificate in Architectural Hardware.
In addition, Gary Frost, Systems Integrator Channel Manager, has passed his year one exams and is on the way to becoming a qualified Architectural Ironmonger.
The GAI qualifications are recognised in the industry and provide Abloy customers with confidence that they are dealing with a fellow professional.
Duncan was already a fully qualified Master Locksmith and his Level 2 ‘Distinction’ elevates his knowledge and expertise even further. One more year of studying will complete Duncan’s path to become fully qualified as a Dip GAI.
Pat Jefferies, Commercial Director at Abloy UK, said: “At Abloy, we believe that our people are our greatest asset and strength, and that knowledge is key to our continued success. For many years, we have encouraged members of our team to study with the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers working towards the final qualification as a Dip GAI.
“In the UK, Abloy boasts a highly qualified team and this has been another great year in terms of the results achieved.
“In today’s ever-changing and demanding markets - where compliance is key to life safety – it is vital that standards are adhered to. As end-users and specifiers, we should always look to ensure that those that we trust to provide specifications for Fire and Escape applications are professionally competent.
“There is no better way of doing this than consulting a fully qualified member of the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers, and we are very proud of Lisa, Duncan and Gary for their achievements.”
