Northane is a family business which began over 20 years ago. The company has grown each year, continually adding new products to the range and forming partnerships with suppliers to develop new products.
Meet the core team members
A background in the chemical industry, specialising in polyurethanes, gave Geoff the expertise to start the business in 1996 supplying adhesives and binders for use in the construction of playgrounds, sports pitches and athletics tracks.
When he’s not coming up with ideas for improved products, Geoff heads for the Lake District to hike the hills around Windermere where his boat is moored.
Owen left corporate and contract law to join the business in 2005. His commercial legal knowledge and product development experience combined give him the ability to handle the complexities in product design and customer service in a lengthy supply chain.
A qualified yacht master and sailing instructor, Owen hopes his children will grow to love sailing as much as he does.
Our office team has in-depth product knowledge and share the workload which covers all the logistics, deliveries, enquiries and invoices. They keep a continuous watch over the most reliable weather reports: last-minute re-scheduling will be necessary when heavy rain is forecast.
Key contacts for orders and deliveries are:
Sarah (Office Manager)
Ten years in the business and Office Manager Sarah has everything running like clockwork from managing stock control at the warehouse to the colour variations and other complexities of each order.
Sarah supports her sons who play rugby and football and satisfies her hardcore side by contemplating her next Tough Mudder.
Pam (Logistics Manager)
Having spent 25 years in the industry, Logistics Manager Pam is adept at organising the supply of raw materials for companies who install playgrounds and sports facilities, often working miracles to fulfil our next day delivery service.
Pam bakes delicious cakes and brings tasty savoury dishes to work which they all share for lunch on ‘Vegan Thursdays’.
As the office dog, Rex stays at heel, wagging his tail for a pat on the back, patiently waiting to be fetched his favourite Good Boy treat.
