New project manager joins Supergrip

Supergrip (UK) Ltd are pleased to announce the appointment of Sheldon Jeffrey as senior project manager at our recently opened Teesside office.

Sheldon brings extensive engineering and project management experience.and has a wealth of knowledge on SURF products and pipeline isolation and repair systems, the core areas of Supergrips business.

Gordon Conlon, director at Supergrip said “Darren and myself are delighted to welcome Sheldon to Supergrip. We have worked with Sheldon for many years at previous companies so we are well aware of his capability and industry knowledge. Sheldon will be responsible for all aspects of the project management function both internally and client facing. We are very pleased that this appointment has already received very positive feedback from our existing clients. This only the first step in our business development expansion plans with other appointments and product launches planned. In difficult times for our industry in general, we firmly believe at Supergrip that there is still an important need for a dynamic SME that performs all engineering and manufacturing in-house. This capability ensures that not only are we commercially competitive as we have no requirement to add a margin onto a subcontractors work but also enables us to respond on fast track applications. This is already being recognised in the contracts that we are being awarded”

Sheldon said “It is an exciting time for us at Supergrip and it is great for me personally to be working with Gordon, Darren and the rest of the team again. The ethos of the company really ties in with my own vision. As a relatively small company offering innovation design solutions we have proven that we are providing high quality products that are formally manufactured and project managed at a very cost effective price for our client. The response in these early months to our performance and offshore feedback of the equipment has been very positive and we have a number of good opportunities going forward that will enable us to develop further in the coming months”
