He started working on the production floor putting bearings and bottom edges together, welding, rolling doors, seaming doors, roll-forming metal, track fabricating, installation, delivery, etc. After spending five years working in the shop he moved into inside sales; working with customers and doing technical support. The past 3 years he has taken over the inside sales of the company. Jake’s hands on and technical product experience and knowledge make him a great asset to Pilot and our customers.

Pilot Doors Systems, Inc. opened its doors in June 2005. The owner and production manager had previously worked for a large company that sold roll-up doors and self-storage components. Both had a dream to create a company that their families would be able to follow their footsteps in. Jan & Karen Gorringe are the owners and Mike Brittain is our unreplaceable production manager. After 10 years of being in the industry, we have really been able to find out what our customers care about, and that is the treatment they receive when they come to Pilot Doors for their self-storage needs. Having nearly doubled our warehouse size over the years, along with several innovations to our doors, we continue to be a leader in the self-storage industry. This family owned and operated business is thriving and we would love to help you with your next storage need!
Pilot Door Systems Inc. was started in 2005 when the former Roll Rite / Roll A Flex Door Company closed its doors. Then the Operations Manager of the Texas facility, Jan Gorringe saw the potential that existed in the equipment that was up for sale. The manufacturing equipment was purchased, moved to Pleasant Grove Utah, and Pilot Door Systems Inc. began. Aware of the issues inherent in the curtain door design, Pilot immediately began looking at ways to improve the design and function of the door. Collaborating with storage facility owners and managers, General Contractors and building suppliers; Pilot was anxious and excited to bring innovative changes to the industry - R & D went into overdrive, new equipment was purchased and production and improvements started to be made. From our innovations in bearing and tensioner design, to the improvements we have made in spring, drum, curtain and track function – Pilot Door Systems continues to push forward in providing the best possible doors and related products to the Self Storage Industry.
