Our History and Experience

Our company was formed in 1977 by Graham Painter who was formerly an Engineer with a local paper manufacturer and Robin Owens who was a Production Manager with a company making building products.

The original aim was to provide an on-site engineering contract service to local industries by operating from an office in Selby. Within two years this was complimented by the opening of a small workshop in rented premises in Goole.

Many repeat orders from satisfied customers meant that within a few years we had outgrown these premises, so we constructed a new and much larger purpose built workshop in Snaith where we still operate from today.

In 2000 David Harrison, an experienced works engineer formerly in the starch manufacturing industry, joined us and is now Director of Engineering. Dave primarily deals with the work we undertake along with most of the supply and pricing queries and is aided by Graham Painter. He is supported in the office by George and Rosemary, who deals with administration.

Since David joined the Company Robin Owens has concentrated on the financial side of the business.

Terry Clark, our General Manager, has been with the company since shortly after its inception and he is responsible for organising the workload schedules amongst his other duties as manager.

Over the years we have worked extensively for all types of industries. As well as all over the UK, we have operated in Europe and as far afield as South Africa and Thailand.

The Role of GRM Office Administration

Rosemary Collins joined us in May 2005 and has now progressed from Administration Assistant to Office Manager.

Her daily activities are based around the running of the Company with respect to the company accounts, banking, wages, ordering in of goods and services and HR as well as attending to customer accounts and invoicing.

She also collates the information required for Dave Harrison to produce monthly Environmental Reports and has developed her skills to be able to provide information and reports to the Directors on request. She also keeps our systems up to date with daily status updates on the progression of work.
