“Just get stuck in. Hard work will always show through more than anything else.”

Today, we say hello to Liam Robertson, Production Team Leader at SCOTGRIP® INTERNATIONAL.

Liam joined us in 2004, as a manufacturing technician within the production team, 17 years on he is now responsible for overseeing the manufacture of our innovative anti-slip safety products, and ensuring that we keep our workforce safe plus ensuring efficient operations and productivity.

Liam shares his story of life at SCOTGRIP® INTERNATIONAL and his career progression.

Q: How did you get into the industry?

LR: I didn’t really know what I wanted to go into. I was working at the Scottish Agricultural Centre and that wasn’t really doing anything for me; then I heard about SCOTGRIP® INTERNATIONAL and I thought it sounded interesting.

Q: What is a typical day like for you?

LR: A typical day is running through all the jobs with the staff in the morning; making sure they’re all comfortable with their tasks then checking in with my superiors to see if they need anything done; checking stock levels and then getting stuck into production, while making sure everyone is okay. Also, checking the equipment is working fine.

Q: What do you enjoy about the work you do at SCOTGRIP® INTERNATIONAL?

LR: I enjoy being responsible for the staff; helping to grow the business and seeing the jobs through from start to finish.

Q: What product are you most proud of and why?

LR: I’m proud of all the products that SCOTGRIP® INTERNATIONAL has developed and supplied over the years; I’ve had a hand in developing each one to ensure it leaves SCOTGRIP® INTERNATIONAL at the highest level of quality and service.

But, if I had to choose one it would probably be the Rigmate® Anti-Slip Drill Floor Mats which we launched in 2012, as it really started off the polyurethane product offering.

Q: What do you find most rewarding about your work?

LR: Helping the team to develop their skills in the company and growing their confidence.

Q: What advice do you have for the next generation who aspire to work in the industry?

LR: Just get stuck in. Hard work will always show through more than anything else.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

LR: Spending time with my family.
