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!
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.
Hi, I am Duncan Haley, Technical Sales Engineer for Petrofer UK covering Northern England and Scotland.
I have 30 years’ experience within engineering and have an in-depth knowledge of production/purchasing and the sales side of business.
I started my work journey in the role of Stock Controller for an engineering company in Sheffield. Over a short period of time, I also took over the responsibilities of Purchasing and Production Manager. It was at this point I decided to expand my knowledge and gain valuable sales experience before moving back into production, and 16 years later, here I am still in sales with a very good knowledge of technical sales within engineering covering small machine shops through to large multi-national organisations.
Away from work I enjoy playing golf with my daughter and running my son the length and breadth of the country for his football. Barbeque plays a large part of my social life, and nothing is finer than family and friends sharing good food and homebrew beer!
I started working for Petrofer at the end of 2001 after 11 years working for one of Petrofer’s customers. I’m from a maintenance background and am also a time served toolmaker after working through a 4-year apprenticeship.
My role in the company is service engineer for the North and Scottish customers and also part of the Petrofer Paper Chemicals division in a technical sales role.
I have been a member of Petrofer UK since March 2010, previous to that I worked as a technician in a motor main dealers.
As a service engineer I look after in use fluids and equipment, and assist in the running of trials.
I am based in Telford and cover the Midlands, the South and Wales.
Hope to see you soon.
