With reference to your request for a commercial reference on Thortech Bridges & Marie Ltd (Thortech), I trust the information below meets with your requirements. However, if you need any further detail please do not hesitate to contact me.
Whilst employed at RS Clare Ltd, in the position of Divisional Manager Surface Coatings, during the period of October 2015 to December 2017, I was responsible for the Bimagrip anti-skid coating business. During this period I worked with Thortech on many domestic and overseas Bimagrip application projects. Overseas projects included Holland, Lithuania, Chile, Germany, Spain and Turkey.
Linkspan projects included Rotterdam, Holland (TTS Marine), Santurce, Spain (Zamakona SY), Cairn Ryan, Scotland (TTS Marine/P&O).
In 2017, I founded a new company Beegrip Ltd and acquired the Bimagrip business through a management buy-out (MBO). In March 2018, Beegrip Ltd appointed Thortech as a distributor. Thortech were selected based on their proven application expertise. Founded in 2004, Thortech has over 10 years of experience in Bimagrip application. During the last two years of closer collaboration, Thortech has repeatedly demonstrated their application expertise and determination to get the job done, both on time and on budget.
