And just like that, we enter another new year! Following an interesting 2023, and an extremely eventful one from a business perspective; progress was made into new markets. We welcomed overseas partners to the UK for the Corrocoat Global Partner Conference, as well as working with hundreds of new and existing clients both nationally and internationally. We look forward to a great 2024.
Some of you may be aware that this year we are celebrating 50 years since Corrocoat was founded by our CEO, Charles Watkinson. In that time, Charles has been instrumental in expanding Corrocoat in to over 30 countries and employing over 1000 people globally. He has designed engineering repair systems, coatings and coating technology, written numerous technical papers and is the inventor of several patents. With a rich brand history and heritage, we have some very exciting plans to honour the incredible milestone this year… stay tuned.
We also have some very exciting news, as the New Year sees Phillip Watkinson, General Manager/Director promoted to the Managing Director of Corrocoat, and sister company Corroserve.
Phillip first joined the company in 2001. He is fully immersed in all areas of the company, and provides a wealth of knowledge and expertise when it comes to specialist coatings and mechanical engineering.
Graham Greenwood-Sole, previous Managing Director for 20 years, moves to the role of part time Technical Director, overseeing and implementing technical and engineering strategies, to ensure continued business growth and success.
Please join us in wishing Phillip and Graham the very best in their new roles. It’ s a very exciting time here at Corrocoat.
Here’s to a great and prosperous year ahead and continued success.
