This approach not only ensures robust quality control and traceability but also accelerates innovation, enabling Gripple to deliver solutions faster than traditional manufacturing models.

Charlotte Hill, operations director at Gripple, emphasises the advantages of their approach: “It’s the Gripple way to do business differently. Whether that’s employee-ownership or vertical integration, we are always looking at new and better ways of doing things. Innovation is our driving force, and with 90 per cent of Gripple components manufactured in-house, we can react quickly to deliver new solutions. Our customers have come to expect a level of quality and service they can’t get anywhere else.”

In a world where supply chain disruptions are common, Gripple’s vertical integration provides strategic independence and supports their sustainability agenda, ensuring greater certainty and transparency for their customers.
