Freefoam has launched a second video in a series to mark their 30 year anniversary, featuring key people who have played a significant part in the growth and development of the business.
This new short film features Geoff Barnett, Technical Operations Manager. With a role at the heart of its manufacturing business, hear why Geoff came to be part of the PVC industry and find out about the part he has played in the site expansion and significant increase in production capacity moving from just four extrusion lines back in 2008 to today’s total of 15.
Having worked for Freefoam for 12 years Geoff sees the strength of the company coming from its people and the way they are encouraged to interact and work together. Geoff comments “Freefoam is a proactive business, with an abundance of people all trying to do their best. It’s great!” Geoff explains how operating as an independent manufacturer has had its challenges but Freefoam continues to prosper year on year and he sees a positive future.
Colin St John, Commercial Director, summarized “People have always been at the heart of everything we do at Freefoam. Our success is based on surrounding ourselves with good people, and Geoff is amongst the best in his field. Working with his teams to move our mixing facilities from Stockport to a brand new multi-million pound mixing plant in Northampton was a complex and extremely challenging project and highlighted Geoff’s skills and expertise. This development has given us control of our entire process facility which has without doubt helped us grow and support our customers.”
