Mike started Polar Manufacturing in October 2011 after an exciting and varied career in the composites industry, which now totals over 20 years.
Having grown the business up from grass roots, Polar relocated to a new Norwich based facility in August 2018 and now has a formidable team to cover every aspect of the business’s needs. This allows Mike the time to focus on business strategy and further expansion – “Polar now has everything in place to continue to grow with an extremely exciting future” – with Mike’s energy, passion and creativity there is always a new challenge, project or adventure ahead!
Mike loves to be involved with sport, keeping fit and the great outdoors. Alongside a round of (‘must do better’) golf and walking his energetic Springer Spaniel, Inca, Mike enjoys the endurance of sports and over the years has competed in the Chicago Marathon, a number of Olympic Triathlons and even an Iron Man 70.3. Mikes says “For me personally being active is motivational and gives me a purpose, but above all keeps my mind positive…”
“When I take the time to remind myself how far Polar has come, it gives me genuine enjoyment about being involved in a place where people are both valued and driven, whilst having the opportunity to advance and develop.”
