Roy Frost is back in the industry having bought GJB from previous owners Ken Blackman and Gary Bristow.
Previous owner Ken Blackman commented: “GJB has been a big part of my life for so long it was very important to me that I left it in the right hands. When Roy expressed an interest I immediately knew it was the perfect fit – he has the experience and ability to drive the company forward and I’m delighted we were able to strike a deal.”
Roy will assume the position of MD, spearheading a new era of growth for the £12m turnover Essex based fabricator, while Ken Blackman will retire and Gary Bristow will continue in his role as Sales Director. Mike Wolstenholme also joins the company as Operations Director, having previously spent his career in window fabrication with Epwin Group, Everest and JELD-WEN.
Commenting on the acquisition Roy said: “This is a fantastic business with a loyal customer base and I am absolutely delighted to take the reins.
Gary Bristow commented: “Ken has been instrumental in our journey and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his fantastic support. The acquisition is good news for staff, as it gives them job security, but it’s also good news for customers. Roy understands the challenges of installation and retailing in a competitive market and will bring an abundance of experience, fresh ideas plus bags of energy.”
