Following 7 years’ of dedicated service at Guttridge, Alan will be retiring on the 20th April. We wish him all the best in his retirement and thank him for all his years of commitment and contributions to the company.

Paul Gott to take over as Sales and Marketing Director….
Paul, an apprentice trained mechanical engineer, brings extensive director level experience in sales & marketing, having held senior commercial positions at Weir Group, Bridon International and Speedyhire plc. A hallmark of his career has been international business development which will be a key area for expansion at Guttridge. We will also be developing a more strategic approach to our marketing, building on the Guttridge & Carier brands, and undertaking research to better understand the needs of our customers. We will use this information to develop a more rigorous approach to the introduction of new products. Paul says “the team of people here at Guttridge match the enthusiasm, passion & professional approach of the best teams I have previously worked with in much larger organisations. I look forward to working with everybody here at Guttridge to grow this business into a bigger & much more profitable organisation.”
