A new era at Technical Foam Services.
by Duncan Geddes
With a new era dawning at Technical Foam Services, Managing Director Duncan Geddes is confident that the future of the company is in good hands.
Founded in 1987, and subsequently acquired in 2005 by Duncan and his former business partner Hamer Francis, Technical Foam Services is a Corby based engineering firm that specializes in producing bespoke foam components using various niche machines, supplying into a wide range of industries around Europe.
At the end of last year, Hamer retired, and Duncan Geddes became sole owner. The intention is that the company continues to expand and develop, focusing not only on the production and supply of foam and rubber components, but also in the design and development side of the business that helps clients find the right product at the right price.
Duncan Geddes said: “Hamer and I worked hard to get the business to a successful and stable level, and the one thing he said when he decided to step down was that he wanted to see it continue to grow and prosper.
“I have no worries about that. The team here is a very special one, there’s a wonderful mix of experienced old hands, and young people with new ideas and methods. They are most definitely a team that works together, and there is a warm and welcoming atmosphere within the whole company”.
At the forefront of the thirty-strong team are Sales Manager Ross Thurlow, and Production & Purchasing Manager Przemyslaw Gorecki. Their expertise, combined with the dedication and skills of their colleagues, has seen Technical Foam Services grow year on year. Turnover during 2015 was £3.65m.
“Rather than simply placing ourselves as a foam converter, we market ourselves as being an engineering company that specializes in foam and rubber products,” said Duncan Geddes. “We don’t provide off-the-shelf solutions, we work with customers on an individual basis to find out exactly what they need, the application of the foam, we identify what materials are best, and come up with ideas to produce the best possible results.”
