I get asked all the time about our company name and where it came from. It’s simple – well it was back in the day. ‘ Thermo’ as in plastic, ‘grave’ as in engraving, which is where our roots were formed.
Now, a bit about myself. I left secondary modern school aged 15 in 1972, to learn a ‘trade’ because that’s what kids from council estates did in those days; at a company called A & G Edgingtons (unfortunately no longer in business). After 4 years learning I was given the news that I was being made redundant! Luckily in those days, Leicester had an abundance of machine engraving companies so within a week of knocking on doors, I was offered a position at Thermograve. That’s where my association with the company began. Firstly on the machines, then charge-hand, Foreman, Manager, Part-Owner joint MD and finally Owner MD. Now stretching towards 50 years, supported by a strong team around me & loyal customers, I look forward to Thermograve Pos going from strength to strength for another 50 years and beyond.
