Tom joins the team at Gripsure

Hello, my name is Tom and I have recently joined the Gripsure team as National Technical Sales Manager. With my first week under my belt, I now look forward to working with my colleagues and introducing our products to potential clients, specifiers and contractors in the months to come.

Since graduating from York university ten years ago, I have forged my career in the timber and construction industries respectively. I have taken on a variety of roles, predominantly liaising with merchants, contractors and architects, to secure contracts for large commercial projects nationwide. During my time in the timber industry, I have been fortunate enough to visit forests and mills in Norway and Sweden. This has given me a great insight into the journey that each deck board takes; from being harvested in the forest to producing and installing the final product.

I have been getting myself familiar with all the fantastic products that Gripsure offer. By offering non-slip solutions in softwoods, hardwoods, modified timbers and composites, we really do have all bases covered and I look forward to discussing upcoming projects with interested parties.

During my visit to St Austell, I had a tour of the production facilities as well as the office. I am impressed with the quality measures in place and the desire to keep improving the processes to offer best in class quality and service. As the company has grown, Gripsure have put in place the structures required to service orders of various products and quantities quickly, efficiently and to the highest standards. With customer service at the heart of the business, the team make sure they can be as flexible as possible to service our customer’s requirements. Whether it’s a few lengths to finish a project off or a full load of deck boards for a major project, the Gripsure team go above and beyond.

The internal team are very passionate and knowledgeable about our offering. Many have been with the company since its inception, which speaks highly of the culture that has been created within the business. With the majority of quotations serviced the same day and 95% of the UK able to receive delivery of stocked items the following day, customers are sure to be happy with such an effective, quality service.

I join Gripsure at an exciting time for the business with ambitious growth plans for the years ahead. Our sales team covering the whole of the UK have done a fantastic job in growing and supporting our merchant network. They have also done incredible work with a variety of end users and contractors to offer a safe and durable product offering.

I look forward to contributing to the future success of Gripsure and if you would like to know more about our products or have an upcoming project that you would like to discuss further, feel free to get in touch with me at
