Meet our Industrial Door Engineer, Mario
Please tell us a bit about yourself!
I’m Mario Ferranti and I work as a Door Engineer at Dortek in the Industrial Door Division. I have been working with Dortek for the past 3 years. I’m passionate about what I do and like to give 100% in everything I do. I’m a a dad of two children Jay who is 13 and Lucia who is 8.
What first inspired you into the engineering and architectural industry?
I first started out as a fitters mate when I was 16 years old. My mum had seen an advert in the chippy window and got me the number. I had no idea at the time what an industrial door even was.
What made you want to work for Dortek?
I’d heard good things about Dortek whilst working for a previous company and I liked how diverse they were with the different range of products they offered.
How has COVID affected your role within Dortek?
Covid hasn’t really had an effect on me personally. Customers needed to keep their businesses going and we were there to help them in any way we could.
What do you like about working with Dortek?
I enjoy the daily challenges that come with my role, including the opportunity to meet new people and to travel.
What are your interests outside of work?
Things I like doing out of work at the moment include raising awareness and funds for a young lad named Ashton Hulme, who is 13. He had to have his leg amputated unfortunately due to a rare form of cancer called Osteosarcoma so I’m raising £60,000 to get him one. At the moment I’m on £25,000 but I have a black tie event that I will be hosting for 430 guests and I’m hoping to raise £15,000 on the night. So that’s kept me very busy over the last few months.
