Since the eighties, the company has developed many innovative solutions under the keen eye of Managing Director, Don Theobald and now offers the widest range of Pipe Clips available in the UK, making it the brand name for pipe clips always asked for by plumbing and heating professionals. With Don Theobald having taken well-earned retirement, April 3rd saw the appointment of Ian Newton as the new Managing Director.

Newton, brings with him a wealth of experience across several SME’s and also with some larger branded companies such as Coca Cola, Budweiser and Kerry Foods, which will, of course, be invaluable in growing Talon as a business. Additionally, until 2 years ago Ian was involved in another company which had an injection moulding operation that produced Christmas decorations as part of its manufacturing process. Ian is looking forward to working closely with the Dean Heathfield, Commercial Director and his sales team, as well as the Operations Director, Martin Shields.
