After 40 years, Jay Ambrosini, Parts Department Manager for Hörmann High Performance Doors, retired on December 31, 2021.
Jay began his career with Flexion, Inc. in 1981 directly out of college with a degree in Graphic Design / Photography. As an inside sales / marketing representative, he created literature, advertising and promotional newsletters. Later, he gained outside sales experience as a regional sales coordinator, product trainer, regional manager, dealer manager for door dealer development for high performance doors, inside sales manager, and finally Parts Department Manager.
Jay most enjoyed his regional sales manager experience, which allowed him to travel extensively across the United States meeting dealers and customers. In 2001, Jay began to oversee a dedicated parts department.
Reflecting on his career, Jay said: “I have had the privilege of working with some wonderful people, past and present, who have taught and guided me throughout my career. I have never been bored, and I’ve always said that every day is a new day, full of new experiences. You never know what direction you’re going to go when you pick up that phone, solving product applications and helping companies to improve their businesses through application and repair of our exceptional products.”
