Wrigley joined Trans-Web 18 years ago as a foreman supervisor and has worked his way up through the ranks, including a move into the sales team, becoming general manager and being appointed to the board.

“My aim is to keep Trans-Web at the forefront of the marketplace in the manufacture of webbing products,” said Wrigley. “To do this, we not only have to keep on producing high quality products; we also have to maintain the excellent service our customers have grown used to.

“My immediate aims include further computerisation of our systems and to make sure that we have a superb web site,” he added.

“Being made a director at Trans-Web is the icing on the cake after working through the ranks for 18 years, and I am looking forward to pushing the company forward to bigger and better things.”
