Gavin

Gavin Hancox
Technical Support

Gavin is our factory manager and technical support. He manages our manufacturing department and responds to all our technical enquiries - a role for which he is perfectly equipped, thanks to his extensive hands-on experience as a former SOLUTIONS SEALERS trade applicator. Gavin keeps his knowledge of Solutions Sealers products and their application current, by assisting in our research & development program.

Gavin’s great joy is chasing mackerel & blue marlin off the Noosa Heads coast - better known to most of us as deep-sea fishing. Hand making many of his own lures helps give him the advantage as he sets out to sea.

Gavin is certainly an asset, with his hands on field experience and current understanding of the latest impregnating sealers working along side our R & D Team.
