East Coast Gate Operators

Roxanne and Michael Ladd purchased East Coast Gate Operators to fulfill a dream to own and operate a family business that supports reputable and hard-working customers. With 20+ years of corporate experience in technology, Roxanne passionately rolls up her sleeves every day to serve the installers that depend on East Coast Gate Operators.  

With his experience in sales, marketing and business ownership, Mike supports Roxanne in charting the course.  The pair is guided each day by a simple question, “how can we make the job and experience of our valued customers better and easier.”  Nothing is more important to Roxanne and Mike than spending time with our customers to understand how to achieve this goal. We welcome your feedback.  Contact us directly and let us buy you lunch or bring coffee and donuts to your team in the field!
