  • Jason Armstrong

    Jason Armstrong

    Managing Director

    Jason; son of Eddie; started in the company at the age of 17 as an apprentice. Jason gained knowledge and years of experience in the rubber industry and assisted his father with the day to day running of the company.

  • Eddie Armstrong

    Eddie Armstrong

    Technical Director

    Eddie was one of the founding members of the company over 40 years ago, then known as Argus Rubber Engineering. In 2013 after years of hard work and commitment, Eddie stepped down from managing director to spend time with his wife Sylvia & family, but still maintained a very important role within the company.

    August 2015 saw Eddie Armstrong retire from the company so he could spend more time enjoying life and travelling the world.

  • Robert Bowles

    Having been a graduate apprentice with Vosper Thorneycroft, and having obtained an Engineering Degree from Oxford University, Robert joined the Barrier Group in 1975. He was made MD of the family business in 1989.

    As the business developed into a group of companies, Robert became the Group Chairman in 2012; joining the Board of Directors at Aquaseal Rubber in 2013.

    Sadly Robert lost his battle with cancer in April 2020. He was a highly-respected gentleman who will be greatly missed from us here at Aquaseal and the Barrier Group.

  • Martin Harper

    Production Manager

    Martin joined Aquaseal Rubber on the 6th of September 2023, as a Production Manager. His day-to-day consists of starting work at 8 am, where he discusses the objectives with the team members and any snags they may have that need addressing. He then spends most of his day looking through emails, following up with any production-related issues, updating the production schedule, and also looking at sales, orders and quoting customers on their requests.

    One of Martins’ biggest achievements in his career so far is winning awards in implementing Kaizen, where he studied business improvement techniques, and studied for his Yellow belt in Six Sigma. Another stand-out project that he worked on was to look at the Not Right First Time, where he set a target to improve this by 4%. Martin and his team then went on to improve the NRFT by 23%.

    Martin mentions that he enjoys wearing different hats throughout the day, from mentoring staff, managing site health and safety, dealing with sales queries, and driving production to be completed correctly the first time. He ‘sees longevity within Aquaseal rubber, and the opportunities to grow as a professional’.
