Locker manufacturer appoints Aaron Grant as Strategic Business Manager

Aaron Grant, Strategic Business Manager for Locit

Locit, a leading manufacturer of steel lockers and innovative storage solutions, has bolstered its sales team to drive growth.

Aaron Grant joins the Deeside-based company as Strategic Business Manager, bringing 15 years of experience and a strong track record in the sector.

He will focus on boosting sales in the Midlands, North and Scotland, working alongside Kevin Elliott, who manages South West, Wales and Ireland, and Daniel Fordham, who heads the North West. Lindsey Hewitt and Sasha Capiello make up the customer and sales support team.

Locit, the world’s only carbon-neutral steel locker manufacturer, is on course to book more than £6.5m in sales in its second year of trading, ending September 2024, an increase of 40% on the previous year. This follows investment by Arete Capital Partners, a Liverpool-based private capital investor, in 2022.

This accelerated sales performance has been achieved through a robust order pipeline, which includes orders from various industries, including schools, gyms, industrial units, police, leisure, and entertainment venues.

Meanwhile, advanced digital manufacturing methods have enabled the company to be agile and fleet-footed in responding to demands for new innovative products. One such innovative product under the Pure Lockers brand is Phone Safe, a wall-mounted locker that features individual compartments for students’ mobile phones. The solution has resonated with educators and administrators nationwide.

Commenting on the new appointment, Richard Williams, CEO of Locit, said: “We are delighted to welcome Aaron to our sales team as we continue our mission to provide innovative storage solutions to our trusted distributors across the UK and Europe.

“We are experiencing phenomenal growth, and Aaron’s expertise and passion for driving results will help us realise our ambitions. With our expanding team and market-leading products, we are poised for even greater success in the year ahead.”

Aaron Grant said: “I am thrilled to join the dynamic team at Locit.  This allows me to impact its business growth significantly.

“I have been keenly following Locit since it launched in 2021. The range of products and technologically advanced manufacturing make it a trailblazer in the industry. I’m eager to leverage my skills and experience to drive sales growth.”

Locit’s 64,000 sq ft digital manufacturing facility sits within Deeside Enterprise Zone, home to advanced manufacturing companies in the aerospace, automotive, food and pharmaceutical sectors.

The company is a proud member of the Made in Britain initiative, which supports and promotes British manufacturing and enables buyers and consumers at home and abroad to identify British-made products.
