Star Uretech have been formulating and manufacturing surfacing resins for over 20 years and our team includes several polyurethane chemists and experienced installers. In 2015 Star Uretech was taken over by a new management team that decided the current UK surfacing markets and products needed dramatic improvements if they were to continue to grow.

Our chemists formulate all of our own products in our purpose-built laboratory which are then manufactured and distributed from our production and warehousing facility in Lancashire. Our in-house testing facility enables us to provide unmatched product testing, performance data and a guarantee that our products are of the very highest quality.

Belinda Garland

Financial Manager

 

Belinda manages all the financial aspects of the business. It is difficult to elaborate more about her role however, Belinda is the one that tells us all we can't have any money. :(

Elizabeth Petter

Operations Manager

 

Lizzie plans all the production, manages the stock levels, purchases all of our raw materials and oversees our ISO accreditation. This is why Lizzie is not allowed to be on holiday and occasionally makes screeching noises.

Kirsty Graham

Technical Sales Coordinator

 

Kirsty is the newest member of our team and manages customer orders and technical enquiries. She can be contacted at lunch time because she doesn't have her lunch until 3pm and nobody really knows why. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Jayne Rogers

Senior Chemist

 

Jayne is not only a highly skilled chemist; she is also the poor soul that produces our product samples. She can often be found hiding in the dark corners of our warehouse singing a song about little boxes.

Paul Cornall

Works Manager

 

Paul manages all of our production and warehouse staff and is also our unofficial HR department. It has been rumoured that in 1974 Paul had a week's holiday but this has never been confirmed.

Wayne Harper - Star Uretech

Wayne Harper

Warehouse Manager

 

Wayne was recently promoted to Warehouse Manager and has excelled in this position. We assume his success is due to the time he spends talking on his phone and whilst we have no idea who he talks to our best guess is that it's the warehouse fairies.

Nicholas Sokolowski - Star Uretech

Nicholas Sokolowski

Production Operative

 

Nicholas is one of our skilled production operatives and is another relatively new addition to our team. He was born on the same day that Alcatraz was closed down for good. Coincidence?

Andrew Houghton  - Star Uretech

Andrew Houghton

Production Operative

 

When not helping in the production department Andrew works closely with Wayne in the warehouse, picking and dispatching orders. Every time an order arrives on time and in perfect condition, this is the Hero we thank.

Laurence Naylor - Star Uretech

Laurence Naylor

Production Operative

 

Loz doubles up as a production operative and our on-site security. He is also the entire reason why we have forklift speed limit signs and regular fork-lift training sessions.
