Congratulation to Phil Grindrod who has recently retired from RFL after long service manufacturing our hydraulic and fluid power fittings.

Below is a photo of Phil on his last day stood in front of one of our new Ø52mm capacity sliding head machines.

Phil's planned retirement prompted the recruitment in 2015 of another apprentice to strengthen the Rubbernek team and to ensure the continuity of skills transfer.

Phil's knowledge and expertise will be greatly missed.

Good luck in your retirement Phil from all at Rubbernek Fittings Ltd!

Due to ever increasing demand for SAE J2044 – ISO 6149 male quick connector fittings Rubbernek has introduced a stocked range of these fittings which are available off the shelf for immediate despatch.
