Interview with Ian Newton, Managing Director of Talon
To celebrate the launch of our brand new website, we decided to interview our Managing Director, Ian Newton, on the new website, achievements, challenges and the future of Talon.
What do you think of the new website?
It’s got a new contemporary feel and really easy to navigate. I love the ‘how to’ video section.
How did you end up working for Talon?
I love British manufacturing and having previously run 3 other UK businesses, I was attracted by the fact that the whole operation (sales/finance/marketing AND manufacturing) was on the site in Kent. Talon’s commitment to quality is 1st class and the range is massive, definitely ‘more than just a pipe clip’, so lots of opportunities for growth.
What's been the biggest challenge in your time at Talon?
Raw material costs have been subject to continued increases (every year!) and whilst the team at Talon have done a great job delivering more operational efficiencies, outside factors are a constant challenge.
