Elected Mayor visits Business of the Year

Elected Mayor visits Business of the Year

The Elected Mayor of North Tyneside, Norma Redfearn together with David W Bavaird, Chair and Karen Goldfinch, Vice Chair visited one of the region’s most innovative businesses to see for themselves why they won the Forum’s 2018 North Tyneside Business of the Year Award.

North Shields based, Monitor Coatings employs more than 60 people developing and producing ultra-dense, high wear-resistant coatings for applications in the oil and gas, steel, marine and defence, power and aerospace industries. They have recently developed a prestigious contract for developing and applying an innovative non-skid, thermal gas wash resistant deck coating for the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales Aircraft Carrier Decks – a factor that led them to receiving the dual awards for Business of the Year and Digital and Innovation.

Managing Director, Rebecca Allcock was delighted to take the Elected Mayor on a tour of her facilities and research areas. “We’ve had a lot of support from North Tyneside Council and the Business Forum and we wanted to let people know that we have a business making a real impact on a global scale right here in North Shields.

“We invest in our local area, attracting, retaining and recruiting people with the right skills for our pioneering work. Indeed, many of our team previously worked in the ship building industry with skills that helped us in the development of the Carrier Deck coating system.”

The Elected Mayor was proud to see the work carried out by Monitor Coatings.

“North Tyneside is a great location for businesses and Monitor Coatings have shown that they can create new innovative technology that is a world leader with applications being used by the military, oil and gas and aviation sectors to name a few. I was very impressed with what I saw both in terms of the products created and the skill and aptitude of the team here.”
