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.
As the new managing director and with the support of his staff and the new board of directors, Jason is moulding the future of the company.
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.
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.
Doug Heslop joined Aquaseal Rubber Ltd as Production Manager in March 2014. He is integral to the process; arriving at 7:15 each morning to switch on machines that need to be up to temperature by 8:30am and sorting out jobs for the day. Doug also deals with matters as they arrive in areas such as sales, production, and purchasing, as well as record keeping.
He mentions that he was inspired to work for us due to the diverse range of products we manufacture; from small gaskets to large one-off extrusions and fabrications.
