JB Corrie, one of the UK’s leading fencing design, manufacturing and installation companies, has appointed Gordon McKinnell as Sales and Operations Manager.
JB Corrie is a family-owned British company that has manufactured and supplied commercial, sports facility, security and domestic fencing for over 100 years. It is also the UK’s first Padel tennis court system manufacturer. The game is enjoying an explosion of interest in this country and Gordon’s passion for sport sees him well placed to oversee rapidly growing sales of the company’s courts.
JB Corrie has supplied tennis courts to Lawn Tennis Association clubs and the private market for many years. In Spain, Padel tennis is second only to football (Lionel Messi has a padel court in his back garden!). JB Corrie is the only company to design and manufacture courts entirely in the UK to LTA and SAPCA (Sports and Play Construction Association) guidelines that specifically cater for the great British weather.
“It is an exciting time to join this progressive company with such a strong history,” Gordon says. “As well as being the leading suppliers and manufacturers in fencing and steel fabrications across a range of sectors, we are seeing soaring demand for our Padel courts.”
Gordon brings a wealth of industry and manufacturing expertise to his key role of contributing to the company’s overall growth strategy. Prior to his appointment, Gordon was Project Manager with Basingstoke’s Winkworth Machinery.
