Gerry Taylor
Co-Founder & Vice President

Considering the refined design and function of Gondola Skate’s industry-leading products, it’s no surprise that Co-Founder and Lead Engineer, Gerry Taylor, is fueled by a lifelong passion for designing tools and machines of the highest quality.

“I was designing mechanical devices before I could ride a bike. My first go-kart was built based on my own hand drawn instructions. I finished mechanical engineering education pre-PC, and evolved to adopt advanced CAD systems from their inception.” Gerry’s traditional foundation (along with 30+ years of injection-molded product, tool design and global manufacturing experience) allows him to see beyond the screen, into a realism of design that is sometimes taken for granted by automated processes.

“In the engineering department at Gondola Skate, we integrate traditional design sensibility with the most refined computerized processes for rapid physical simulations and prototyping. The result is the ultimate combination of robust, high quality mobilization equipment with unmatched user-friendly ergonomics.”

“We couldn’t be more proud of the Gondola Skate products our customers use in their moving programs, setting new standards of speed and safety. I started by designing go-karts to feed my own need for speed, and now we’re a company famous for innovative equipment that moves fixtures and racks faster than any other in the world… Perhaps it was destiny,” said Gerry.

Gerry is passionate about user-friendly design, and it shows in the simple functionality of every Gondola Skate product.

“In my mind, when I am conceiving a solution, I am applying every downstream process to the product, as if I were assembling it by hand on the factory floor, testing it in the lab, and demonstrating it for a client. Nothing is more rewarding than a room full of beaming faces, from workers to corporate heads, when a new Gondola Skate solution is presented to a client that revolutionizes their mobilization programs. You can see the relief in the workers’ eyes, and the dollar signs in the eyes of management due to the incredible time and cost savings. It’s honestly the best part of what I do.”

When a comprehensive Gondola Skate system is used to perform a mobilization task, new standards of increased worker safety, program efficiency and predictability are set. The fixtures and venue property are protected from moving damage, and the greatest savings are achieved in project costs, sales disruption and labor time. “This is what empowers our customers to succeed with their mobilization programs like never before; this is the reason we do what we do.”


Gondola Skate is a leading manufacturer of fixture mobilization equipment. We enable retailers and warehousing professionals to achieve significant cost savings by moving gondola shelves and pallet racks more safely and easily.
