Earlier this month an excited group of ICE (International Career Enhancement) Club members went to see a successful Sheffield Manufacturing company in action to learn all about their business and how they recruit their staff. Below Phuong Mai, MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management student at SHU, shares her impressions of the visit to Gripple:
On 3rd Nov 2014, 20 students of Sheffield Hallam University were honoured to visit Gripple Ltd. Company in Sheffield. The company is pioneer in manufacturing “Gripple Fastener” which can be used in construction and agriculture. It was established by Mr. Hugh Facey in 1988 in Sheffield and now they became one of the leading innovation companies in United Kingdom in 2014. After 25 years, Gripple Ltd. sold more than 500 million units and went global to Europe, America, South America and India. The sustainable growth in a short time of Gripple Ltd. is worthy to learn and inspire young students.
