A tribute to Robert Bowles from Aquaseal Rubber
18th May, 2020
After a battle with cancer, we sadly lost Director Robert Bowles on the 2nd April 2020. Robert joined the Aquaseal Rubber team in 2013 and made a great contribution to the company. He was also Group Chairman at the Barrier Group after joining the company in 1975.
A private family funeral was held on the 21st April where close family and friends paid tribute to his life. Once lockdown restrictions are lifted, we will be attending a wake in memory of Robert with all the staff at Barrier Group head office to celebrate his life and great achievements.
He started his career as a graduate apprentice with Vosper Thorneycroft, following his Engineering Degree at Oxford University. After this, he joined the Barrier Group before being assigned to the Board of Directors here at Aquaseal.
Robert was a highly-respected man and somebody that we all thought a lot of. He was a gentleman through and through and he will be a big miss to the Barrier Group of companies and the Aquaseal Rubber team.
