Meet the Team
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.
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.
Design & Technical
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 day can be very varied, but his least favourite thing to hear is “Simon, my printer / computer isn’t working…”!!
One of the best things about moving to our new premises in 2011 was recruiting Ian to manage the warehouse. As well as keeping the warehouse well organised, Ian ensures quality control of incoming items and contributed to our gaining ISO9001 accreditation. He also packs all the orders and helps with assembly.
Customer & Business Support
Our "newbie" Linsey is a part qualified accountant who supports Jacqui whilst remaining customer focused through sales order processing and resolving queries. Linsey's enthusiasm for new challenges has quickly made her an invaluable team member!
Assembly & Packing
In 2019, when we needed extra hands for light assembly and packing jobs we turned to this social enterprise which employs disabled and disadvantaged workers. Now we'd be lost without them!
