New facilities for new recruits
A dynamic armour company with over 30 years’ experience globally across marine, land and airborne vehicles, ASL GRP delivers advanced protective solutions all around the world. The new production site in Rookely, Isle of Wight, UK is a third bigger than the previous site in Merstone, with plans for further development in 2020.
Pivotal in the development and direction of the company, particularly its growth in the marine sector, Jack Sandiford-Haigh – Marine Sales Director for ASL GRP – has spent the last year developing the new division, maximising his own maritime knowledge and expertise, and increasing the company’s capabilities; ASL GRP offers a wide range of ballistic protection solutions for naval and marine vessels, covering superyachts, military vessels and crew boats, RIBs, tenders and patrol boats. The larger premises support the company’s ever-growing order book by facilitating new job opportunities, particularly in the commercial maritime sector.
ASL GRP has made other key appointments over the last few months, including Dan Graves as Project Manager and Laura Jones as Soft Armour Technician. The factory team is also to be increased by three to help deliver ASL GRP’s projects
Jonathon Diffey, Founder and Managing Director of ASL GRP, comments, “This is a really exciting time for ASL GRP. We have made significant progress within the marine industry and the past year has been a game changer for us. The new facility and recent recruitment drive give us a more streamlined production process, ensuring we can meet and exceed the requirements and expectations of all our clients.”
