Hi, I am Stuart Gregory, the Managing Director of Petrofer UK and also a member of the Global Executive Committee.
I started life as a Trainee Apprentice/Metallurgist with GKN then moved to become a Research Technician at Sheffield University, and following obtaining Engineering qualifications moved back into industry.
First working as a Production Engineer, gradually moving to Production Manager. Following the company closure I moved into selling industrial process fluids as Technical Sales Manager with an Australian company.
Some 21 years ago I moved to Petrofer UK working through Technical sales management and becoming MD over 4 years ago.
Away from work I enjoy Rock music, motorcycling and charity work with NABD and The Chernobyl Children’s Project. Most sports, though, particularly with a ball, count me out and just pass the red wine over!
Before joining Petrofer UK Plc in April 2018 as UK Sales Manager, I worked in both the precision Engineering and Lubrication industries.
I began my career as an apprentice machine tool engineer for TS Harrison & sons in Yorkshire. I then moved into Sales in the mid 90’s where I worked for a large German multinational company afterwards taking up the challenge of running my own company.
I am looking forward to the challenge of building on Petrofer’s long established recognition as a technological leader for lubrication solutions.
Music is my passion and I play the keyboard and also DJ. I can usually be found on the weekend playing some classic vinyl records on my “wheels of steel”.
I joined Petrofer in 1994 originally working in the Telford Laboratory.
My role with the company changed in 1997 when I joined the technical sales team.
Over the years I have been fortunate to have being involved in nearly all of the manufacturing sectors where our products are utilised. In particular, I have gained a wealth of experience in heat treatment processes, metal working and parts cleaning and have a sound knowledge of the Petrofer products ideally suited for these applications.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling around the UK with my family in our battered old motorhome and also going to music concerts and festivals.
