MEET THE TECHNIFAST TEAM

Find out about the people (and dog!) that make Technifast unique. We think it's really important for our customers to know our team and to have the opportunity to discover more about the wealth of experience each member brings to the party!  As a team, we have a collective 150 years experience in the fastener industry - so you're in safe hands when you trust us with your business.

We're proud of the people who make Technifast a leading manufacturer of precision engineered components - and when you've read our profiles, we're confident you will like what you see too!

Louis Speed

LOUIS SPEED, MANAGING DIRECTOR

Managing Director Louis steers the helm of the Technifast team. He took over after the retirement of founder (and Louis’s father!) John Speed. Louis still likes to keep his hand in on the CNC machines with the production team. In any free time he gets, he enjoys traveling – most recently to China – and is also an adept bass player.

John Garner

JOHN GARNER, MANUFACTURING

Senior Engineer John produces our manufactured components. He's also spent the last six years restoring an Apollo 32 Offshore Cruiser. His 20 years engineering experience have proved invaluable in creating stainless steel boat parts. He now plans to enjoy his hard work by relaxing on the deck with a beer and fishing rod!

Suzanne Lilly

SUZANNE LILLY, SALES & QUALITY

Meet our longest-serving employee Suzanne, who manages our sales enquiries and maintains quality standards for our ISO:9001 status. The mum-of-two is also a jigsaw-fanatic, a qualified Highland Dancing Teacher and a committee member of the annual Corby Highland Gathering event. She is one busy lady!

Sharon Friel

SHARON FRIEL, PURCHASING

Sharon manages our purchasing and inventory, securing the best prices for our customers. When she's not spending Technifast money, Sharon enjoys spending her own cash on her ever-expanding handbag collection! Energetic Sharon also likes cycling and Boxercise – and after working up an appetite, she enjoys eating out with her family!

Kerry Garner

KERRY GARNER, MARKETING

Organised Kerry loves a good to-do list, making her ideal for her role in managing the marketing and event needs of Technifast. When she is not updating the website or coming up with campaign ideas, she also enjoys creative writing, dog-walking and the occasional (large!) glass of red wine!

David Briffa

DAVID BRIFFA, ACCOUNTS

David takes care of Technifast’s accounting and invoicing. When our resident number-cruncher isn’t calculating the balance sheet, he likes to play darts and football. He also celebrates (and commiserates) the ups-and-downs associated with being a life-long Sunderland Football Club supporter.

Filip Celebicanin

FILIP CELEBICANIN, SALES

Fil completed his apprenticeship with us - and is a valued member of our sales team. As a football fan and Chelsea supporter, Fil cites completing the World Cup Sticker Book 2018 as one of his big acheivements! He also completed a road trip across The States - which we think is a much bigger achievement!

Amber Crawford

AMBER CRAWFORD, APPRENTICE ADMINISTRATOR

Amber is our drill-music loving (no, we have no idea what ‘drill-music’ is either) business apprentice who brings the average age of the team down by a significant margin. Amber spends her weekends socialising with friends and enjoys music festivals.
