General Manager | GWP Protective

Richard Coombes

Richard has worked at GWP Protective in a number of differing roles since early 2004 – joining when the company was still known as Eastman Packaging.

Originally working on the shop floor manufacturing cases and foam inserts, in 2009 Richard became the Internal Sales Manager, and then, in 2014, took over the running of the division as General Manager.

This succession through the business means Richard has a huge depth of knowledge of all aspects of not only GWP Protectives’ business, but also of the full range of products it supplies and manufactures.

This expertise across foam inserts, packaging, protective cases and sample cases makes him perfectly placed to advise on the best solution for any specific application or industry. This in turn has allowed Richard to oversee a successful period of investment in new equipment and resources, as well as strong sales and revenue growth.

When not heading up the team at GWP Protective, Richard likes to spend time with his young family as well as trips to the cinema and live shows / events.
