Our dedicated team of 20 currently consists of the following 11 office staff, as well as our warehouse manager, two stores-men, five assemblers and one support staff. Our team is constantly growing as our business evolves and we’re always on the lookout for new talent to join our small, multi-skilled and close knit platoon. Every member of our team is important, but as a customer you’re most likely to speak to the following people.
John has worked for the company since 1988 and became Managing Director when his father Brian S Teasdale retired in 2002.
