Meet the Team
Left to right: Tracy (Production), Jacqui (Accounts), Linsey (Business Manager), Lucy (Sales), Ian (since retired), Genny (MD), Simon (Director), Robert (Warehouse)
As the founder’s daughter, Genny grew up with Easi-Grip conversation at the dinner table and has been working for the company since 1991. Over the years she has made scissors, set up systems and attended International Trade Shows but nowadays her focus is on developing the business and supporting her fantastic team.
Responsible for design updates and all matters technical Simon has been an invaluable member of the team since 2007. From mentoring a design student to resolving manufacturing issues, Simon’s role can be very varied!
Since joining the team in 2004 Lucy has been recruiting and looking after our distributors and representing us at trade shows. She is passionate about making Easi-Grip® products universally available and gives exceptional customer support to ensure products are well represented.
Queen of Spreadsheets “Our Jacqui” (she comes from Up North) has been with us since 2005 dealing with all aspects of accounts and financial planning. Jacqui also keeps the cash flowing which is no mean feat when it involves juggling three currencies!
Production & Purchasing
Veteran employee Tracy has been with us since 1996 and proved herself to be a key member of the team. The best bit about Tracy making scissors (10,000 in 2018!) is that she has a keen eye for detail and ensures we maintain high quality of all our products.
Linsey is a part qualified accountant who joined in 2019 to support Jacqui whilst remaining customer focused through sales order processing and resolving queries. Linsey's depth of understanding of the business has since developed her role into that of Business Manager.
One "newbie", Robert, joined in May 2021 when the previous Warehouse Manager retired. He is now getting to grips (sorry!) with the product range, picking and packing the orders as well as planning future warehouse efficiencies.

Assembly & Packing
After Covid our working patterns had changed sadly making it no longer viable to continue working with Realise Futures CIC. Instead we approached Essex Supported Employment Services who placed Paul with us using Access to Work support.
