GLOBESTOCK REACHES 40 YEARS SINCE INCORPORATION
Globestock celebrates a significant milestone in 2022, 40 years since its incorporation in 1982.
That’s four decades of design, engineering, manufacturing, and supplying high-quality solutions for confined space access, working at height, and load arrest. Throughout its 40-year history, Globestock has been based in the market town of Oswestry, taking immense pride of its British manufacturing heritage; engineering market-leading products.
Since 1982, the company has been growing from strength to strength. The growth is highlighted by the recent partnership with Xtirpa, whereby Globestock became a major distributor of Xtirpa’s superb range of made-in-Canada products. This collaboration exceedingly advanced and expanded Globestock’s equipment offering, whilst continuing to maintain the highest standards they are renowned for.
Privileged to be centrally positioned to serve the UK, over the last 40 years Globestock have drawn in expertise from the West Midlands and Mid Wales regions, resulting in an outstanding team of people. Globestock boasts an in-house design and development department, CNC machines, bespoke testing and training facilities, not to mention the fantastic manufacturing capabilities, all in the same building.
Globestock clearly remain committed to assuring uncompromising quality and rigorous attention to detail in everything they do, delivering unsurpassed user confidence in the equipment and, ultimately, saving lives.
Patrick Evans, Managing Director of Globestock for the past 24 years, comments:
“As we celebrate 40 years of incorporation, we have immensely enjoyed reflecting upon the many achievements we’ve made, and we look forward to the future. Over the years, we’ve seen huge progression and development, but one thing remains the same – the value of our British manufacturing heritage and the expertise of our dedicated colleagues. Happy birthday Globestock!”
Looking ahead, Globestock have exciting projects already underway that promise to deliver further progress and growth; a rebrand and relaunch of their Guard load arrest devices, and further expansion into the European and North American markets. Many new products, such as a Leading Edge fall arrest block and alternative rope material options are also in the pipeline. There’s a lot to watch out for at Globestock!
