Dave Sciotto purchased the assets of Lodi Door from Overhead Door Corporation in 1985. Since then, Lodi Garage Doors and More developed a vision that there was a “need” for affordable yet solid quality products where employees were empowered to work as owners developing solid relationships with customers, vendors and coworkers taking on new roles as partners.
These original principles have taken on a more collaborative role over the years providing Lodi with an expanded vision that has been built upon. We’ve shaped our environment to provide more employee inclusion, breaking barriers allowing us to serve more of the community while providing additional opportunities for qualified workers, created more training programs including an extensive safety component, expanded our quality commitments and have sought out professional accrediting organizations in our effort to achieve solid value to our customers.
We’ve increased employee awareness of best practices when it comes to ethical conduct with our customers/vendors and demonstrated the importance of “giving back” to our community’s youth, providing involvement to groups such as the Boys & Girls Club of America. We’ve increased the level of services offered to customers understanding the importance of safety for people in their homes and at work environments which is directly in-line with organizational values well recognized in our employees where they all work as owners doing what it takes to ensure there’s “Only Satisfied Customers”.
As the owner of Lodi Garage Doors and More, Dave Sciotto’s mission was to build an organization that would support the “need” in the Phoenix Metropolitan area for affordable yet solid quality products offering customers the safety they deserve and the splendor they want in their homes and work environments. Beginning in 1985 with the purchase of Overhead Door Corporation, Dave has been successful in realizing his goals having grown the organization from 9 employees to over 80 today. It’s this growth that has Lodi well equipped for its customers in a 24 hour capacity whether the function requires Emergency Service Representatives, Home or Business Installation Technicians. In his effort to offer additional representation for Lodi customers in the Valley, Dave opened three showrooms equipped with part counter assistance in the Scottsdale and Mesa areas which offer over 300 garage door designs, a dramatic improvement from the 4 door designs offered in 1985. Remaining the same since 1985, however, is the core principle of maintaining a commitment to the customer which has been responsible for the continued success of Lodi Garage Doors and More and will continue to remain the keystone of Lodi’s future business planning efforts.
Mr. Sciotto’s philosophy
“The one thing that has remained the same over all these years is our commitment to the customer, I have always believed that if you take care of your customers they will take care of you, to that extent our motto has been “Only Satisfied Customers” and everyone at Lodi knows that phrase drives all of the decisions we make and if they error on the side of the customer, they will never hear a complaint from me”.
An avid volunteer with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix, today Dave serves on the Foundation for the Clubs. “The Phoenix Clubs are near and dear to my heart, it is a wonderful organization that does some amazing things for some truly deserving kids in our community and they do it with a staff that is constantly under paid and over worked, but they truly believe in what they do and they know how important they are to the kids”. Dave is proud of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix for their fiscal responsibility, today .87-.88 cents of every dollar they raise goes directly to the benefit of the kids that puts them in the top echelon of all the non profits in the country. “If you ever wanted to help kids and do it with people that will spend your money wisely the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix is the place to go”.
