Who We Are
Springcoil was formed back in 1983 and has grown gradually over the years with changes to the workforce, machinery and premises.
The last 36 years have been challenging and we’ve seen a lot of changes in both the industry, economy, processes and the marketplace but we have survived and we believe that is because of the way we work.
Our aim is to ensure that our springs are made to the highest quality, with short lead times when needed and great customer service is a top priority. Our achievements can be monitored by the fact that our major customers have remained with us throughout the last 36 years.
Carl Martin – Managing Director
Carl lives and breathes Springcoil. He has been with the company for over 25 years when he joined the production team where he developed a wide range of manufacturing skills as well as knowledge in spring design and materials and he also achieved an IWMA scholarship at the Institute of Spring Technology in Sheffield.
Carl is responsible for the day to day running of the business, purchasing, key customer accounts as well as overseeing the design and production of springs. He is very much an hands-on Director. He is heavily devoted to the business growth progressing it forward with investment in the production plant and machinery to ensure that Springcoil continue to be one of the best spring manufacturers in the UK.
Carl is continuously looking to improve an already impressive business. The most recent improvement project saw the old wire store room converted into a purpose built powder coating plant.
We have also invested in three new state of the art machines: An automatic aqua grinder and two semi-automatic coiling machines.
Carl is always very keen to progress and drive the business to the next level of performance and is looking foward to Springcoil’s growth in 2019.
Keith Grimshaw – Director
Keith Grimshaw formed Springcoil back in 1983. Keith has considerable experience in the spring industry and started his career back in 1965 with The Tempered Spring Company in Sheffield. Although Keith has taken a back seat role in the day to day running of the business to enjoy his semi-retirement, his knowledge and expertise is still valuable to Springcoil.
Ryan joined the company back in 2008 and started working on spring design and sales quotations alongside his older brother Carl where he gained vast experience in all areas of spring design and manufacturing. In 2015 Ryan stepped up to the role of Quality Manager after completing the relevant training and accreditations where he worked closely with Keith to learn more about the procedures involved in the ISO9001:2015 quality accreditation. Ryan is a key member of the Springcoil Management Team and is committed to contributing to Springcoil’s growth.
Lisa works in our busy Sheffield offices and is responsible for any accounts related matters from invoicing to payments and everything in between. She also provides general office assistance to the Management Team and customers alike, chasing up quotations and progressing orders.
