The Tarpaflex Team
Tarpaflex Ltd invites you to learn more about each member of our skilled workforce from the Managing Director to our Warehousemen. Each member plays a key role within the company to offer you, the consumer, an efficient and enjoyable purchasing experience.
Many years of hard work have been put into making Tarpaflex Ltd what it is today; one of the largest and most competitive tarpaulin importers in the UK. Combined, the Company Directors have over 50 years experience working in the tarpaulin industry. Piece by piece, Bob and Grethe have built the company from scratch and have nurtured it into the successful and well established company it is today.
Bob's career started in the South East of England where he worked for a leading roofing company as a Sales Representative. After gaining a few years of sales experience, Bob was then head-hunted by a company selling polyethylene trolley bags. During his time working for the company, Bob saw a gap in the market for other polyethylene products and suggested the company import polyethylene tarpaulins. His suggestion was disregarded by company management and so Bob decided to go it alone.
More than 25 years ago Bob imported his first 20ft container of economy tarpaulins and so Tarpaflex Ltd was born.
Personal Interests: Boating, Travelling, Cruising, Classic Cars, Movies and Fine Dining.
Danish born Grethe, Bob's wife, has been a key member of Tarpaflex from the day the company was started. In the early days, Grethe spent many hours researching the products and sizes Tarpaflex would later import, and even help offload, by hand, the containers once they arrived in the UK. Grethe now oversees the company finances and ensures Tarpaflex runs without fault on a daily occurrence.
Personal Interests: Cruising, Cooking, Fashion, Interior Design, Fine Dining and Gardening.
