Dave Lundy

David Lundy (Managing Director)

The man with the pointy stick, as owner and Managing Director of Pro-tect, Dave is passionate about the products we produce and the service we deliver to our clients, saying; 'it is said that no man is an island and that is certainly true of Pro-tect, our business has flourished from the enthusiasm and dedication of its staff making Pro-tect a leading supplier and manufacturer of safety equipment which has all been done without the use of a pointy stick'. Dave remembers the first contract secured was for the supply of Police Signs to the Royal Ulster Constabulary which gave the company a real boost and helped set the picture for the years ahead and the continued support we enjoy from our clients. When not at work Dave likes to spend time with his family, playing with typical boys toys; motorbikes, boats & cars.

Connect with Dave via LinkedIn, he's fast becoming a networking wizard in his spare time as well!

David John  (Production Manager)

Frighteningly it’s been over 40 years since starting in the sign trade. David's first appointment was with a small family business based in Weston-super-Mare. This is where he learnt his trade as a sign maker, he would work hour upon hour cutting and riveting steel, laminating, applying vinyl before seeing the finished product ready to send to the client. Now things are a little less difficult and certainly more enjoyable, the old 1970s equipment along with materials of the same era have been replaced by the new digital age. Investment in new welding and cutting machines has helped him introduce lean manufacturing and now he has time to get involved in the things he loves best, product design and development, sourcing new materials and being part of the Pro-tect team. (Yes! one of the team is his little girl Laurie)

 

Laurie John (Sales & Despatch Co-ordinator)
