Meet The Team
Our team is what makes our business so special.
Many facilities have the equipment customers need, but we believe it’s the people working hard in the background that brings a project to life.
With over 30 years in the industry, Patrick has risen through the ranks since joining the company. Now responsible for overseeing the running of the company on behalf of the owners, the Spinks family, Patrick has spent his entire working life at Ladbrook UK.
He believes this is a testament to the people he works with, the opportunity to progress and the overall ethos and morale of the team.
Outside of work, Patrick enjoys spending time with his four (now grown-up) children, his family and his dog Ronnie. As a recently retired football coach of over 20 years, he now enjoys the sport as a spectator and watching cricket and rugby.
