Gateway Architectural Products strives to provide value to our manufacturers as much as to our customers with our knowledge of the vertical markets our customers serve and how the products made by our manufactures fit within those markets. We are determined to find product solutions for our customers, whether or not those solutions are currently offered by the manufacturers we serve. This drive keeps us connected to new market demands and ideally leads to product innovation from our manufacturers.
Gateway Architectural Products was started in 2016 by Lisa Walsh. A diverse background in the industry, including 20+ years in distribution followed by a position as a territory sales manager for a manufacturer, lead Lisa to taking the next step-- creating Gateway Architectural Products, an independent manufacturers sales agency representing a small number of manufacturers spanning all vertical markets.
While Lisa started the business and has strong relationships in the door and hardware industry, Gateway is by no means a one-woman company. If 2020 and 2021 taught us only one thing in this business, it is that having a strong digital platform is as essential for sales agencies as it is for manufacturers. We can reach our 2000+ customers in a single moment with a single message. Annie offers behind the scenes support in office administration, maintains our awesome website, and is on our social media platforms. Blake is a hybrid of both sales and digital marketing.
