At Kelkay, he’s responsible for the production of bagged aggregates and manufacturing of all the concrete product for the Borderstone ranges as well as the joinery department which manufactures Kelkay’s unique modular POS.

Asked what sparked his interest in the new role, Mr Murgatroyd said, “I came to meet Antony and I was immediately impressed with the sense of purpose and enthusiasm in the whole team. The business has clearly been growing rapidly and is now entering a very exciting new phase of its’ development. I’d be mad to turn down such an exciting opportunity and it’s also a role to which I am confident I can add real value from my past experience.”
