Gripple - Leading the way

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Meg Munn MP and fellow city MP Angela Smith, recently visited successful local manufacturer Gripple at the request of Emma Hibbert, Sales Manager. Emma and female colleagues have joined the newly formed organisation ‘Women in Manufacturing’ to challenge outdated perceptions and encourage more women to consider careers in manufacturing. Meg had attended the launch of the national network in Westminster, which is where she met Emma.

Emma was keen to show Meg and Angela the range of roles that are undertaken by women at Gripple. As well as being market leaders in wire joiners and tensioners the company has a unique structure as it is an employee owned business.

In addition to the well known ‘gripple’, which joins wire together, the company prides itself on innovation and encouraging everyone to embrace continuous improvement. As a result the company has excellent levels of employee retention and continues to develop new products.

Meg said:

"It is always a pleasure to visit Gripple. I am delighted that Emma and her colleagues are thinking about the role of women in manufacturing and what they can do both within the company and more widely to change perceptions"
