Paul Devlin

Managing Director

Grandson of our company founder, George Devlin, Paul possesses that same entrepreneurial streak, customer focus, and hard work ethic.

Aside from overseeing and determining the ongoing growth and development of the business, he is a dynamic leader, a hugely talented designer, and a fully hands-on team member who inspires others through his actions.

Paul is incredibly passionate about delivering a high-end quality product, fulfilling promises made to customers, and seeking out new and better ways of driving the business forward.

He is incredibly factory-focused and has initiated the installation of energy efficient (green) heating systems throughout the factory, as a means of ensuring a greener, more efficient manufacturing process.

Finance Director

Another member of the founding family, George Jnr is Finance Director, and a lot more besides!

Just like our MD, Paul, George has grown up with the business and has learned every aspect of it through first-hand experience: this perhaps explains why, in addition to having exceptional financial and business acumen, he’s also an incredibly creative thinker, an ideas man who can make things happen, an IT whizz, and a marketer par excellence.
