REPROTEC GROUP CELEBRATES 30 YEARS IN BUSINESS

AMF member Reprotec Group, an award-winning surface repair and protection specialist is celebrating 30 years in business.

Founded in 1988 by managing director John Holmes, Reprotec was originally set up as a sales agent selling high-tech surface engineering, covering Scotland and Ireland. Based in an office at Gateshead Business Centre, this work led the firm to introduce resins for engineering and maintenance repair compounds and Reprotec as it’s known today was born.

Reprotec Group consists of Reprotec UK that specialises in providing innovative, environmentally-friendly repair and protection solutions, using resin-based products to protect the fabric of buildings, and Repair and Maintenance Suppliers, an online division that sells repair and maintenance products to both the public and trade.

The firm works nationwide across all industry sectors including automotive, food production, chemical, engineering, pharmaceutical, education and aerospace; offering a one-stop-shop for all types of surface repair and protection solutions – from the initial consultation to installation, Reprotec’s reputation and breadth of experience has led it to work with clients such as Nissan, Northumbrian Water, Greencore Group, 3M and Sir Robert McAlpine.

Reprotec’s reputation for quality systems stems from all operatives being fully qualified from NVQ Level 2 in specialist Floor Laying, and this is the basis for further training and progression within the company. Furthermore, five of Reprotec’s employees, were among the first ever national cohort of 19 apprentices studying NVQ Level 2 in specialist Floor Laying in 2005 and are still with the company today.

Reprotec also has a firm commitment to the environment and sustainability, this has seen the company introduce a ‘Changing SPACES Green-Theme’ approach to their contracting services; and as a fully-licenced waste carrier, it operates a policy of no dust, no fumes, 100% recycling and 100% landfill avoidance.

John Holmes, managing director of Reprotec Group, said: “I’m delighted to be celebrating our 30th year in business, it has been an unforgettable journey filled with triumphs, challenges, and growth.

“I would like to think that our continued success can be attributed to our core values which have never changed in 30 years: quality, honesty, integrity, respect, care and hard work – which are echoed in our service commitment to our customers and our commitment to our employees.

“We started back in 1988 and it is a testament to all of our staff, past and present, and their hard work that we have grown to become a leading surface repair and protection specialist. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
