Miami Gate Operator is:

Gustavo Aloma – Installer/technician. Gus began at Miami Gate Operator in 2007, working directly with John McClelland in order to learn the gate operator and access control business from the bottom up. He has previous experience working in customer service and has developed a reputation for setting the bar for our service excellence and excellent customer experience. There are some trains of thought that at 10,000 hrs you become an expert. Gus is the unassuming expert that never acts like he has all the answers. That characteristic makes him a great technician because he never assumes he knows exactly what a problem is going to be. He always carefully examines each issue as it’s own. Gus is proficient in both English and Spanish.

Mayra Ruiz – Mayra is the office manager at Miami Gate Operator. Mayra handles the office and will be the person taking most of the service calls. Mayra has been with Miami Gate Operator since 2009. Mayra is the backbone of Miami Gate Operator.   Mayra is proficient in both English and Spanish.

Antonio Smith Installer/ technician.  Since joining Miami Gate Operator in Oct 2015, Antonio has proven to be a fast learner and super hard worker. We feel very fortunate to have him with us. Antonio has proven to be indispensable and  since Hurricane Irma  has really taken the lead. Antonio is running the installation side of what we do and is passing on what he has learned to those that are on his crew.

Jean Aloma- Jean is the younger brother of Gustavo. Jean spent 8 years working at Roasters and Toasters in Pinecrest. He is dedicated and hardworking and has joined Miami Gate Operator to provide help with all aspects of what we do. He has been working on our installation crew  and like everyone, is learning from the ground up, literally. Jean is proving to be a fast learner. Jean is proficient in both English and Spanish.

Christian Guerrorro- Christian joined Miami Gate Operator to help out while attending school. He is working on his Cisco Certification among other things and we are looking forward to him helping out in the future with our increasing need to change to IP based systems for access control.

Christopher Mahaney- Christopher joined Miami Gate Operator to work in our fabrication department. He is the person that will be handling the aluminum, steel and stainless fabrication. As a graduate of Robert Morgan we feel fortunate to have someone of his skill level working in our shop.

Paul McClelland – Paul had been with Miami Gate Operator since 2008. Paul has prior low voltage control experience working with renowned Miami based deep foundation contractor HJ Foundation. At HJ, Paul developed a reputation for being a problem solver and project supervisor. His deep drilling power units and equipment are still working and helping to drill some of the largest cast augered piles in the south east. Paul also is a sculptor, so he takes a lot of pride in making sure that all the work we do is not just correctly done but is also aesthetically pleasing. He understands what it takes to make sure that we cover all the details.

John McClelland – John is no longer involved in the day to day of Miami Gate Operator. He had worked in the field for over 20 years. John does though, still provide consulting expertise in the field of access control and gate operator service and installation for Miami Gate Operator.

In 2016 we expanded into garage door maintenance and garage door preventative maintenance. In Feb of 2017 we installed our first garage door. We also upgraded an existing customers extremely heavy 900 lb single door two car garage to include emergency door stops.  We do not do new installs or maintenance except for existing gate customers at this time.  Something we have come to understand is that garage doors, just like gate systems, need continuous TLC. Hurricane Irma has seen a move to concentrate more on the gate operators and access controls but we plan to start moving back toward this area as we starting moving away from Irma repairs and recovery.

Miami Gate Operator is very much aware of the satisfaction desired by its customers and strives to make our relationship one of trust. We hope that you feel the same way and know that you can contact us with that in mind. Anytime!
