The Gee-Force Team - Great Yarmouth
We've come a long way in the four years since we first established a presence is Great Yarmouth. Indisputably the best looking suppliers of bolting equipment in the town or anywhere near!
New Premises in Great Yarmouth
July 2016 and we're in our brand spanking new premises on Beacon Park in Great Yarmouth.
This is EEEGR's Sophie Wilson modelling one of our "Powerful Stuff" posters on the Gee-Force stand at SNS2016.
Choose Your Future 2014
This is Jenson, Joshua and Zac from Springwood High School in King's Lynn. They liked our demo rig at the Choose Your Future 2014 event organised by Norfolk County Council.
It's behind you!
Graeme is blissfully ignorant as a giant TWLC4 limited clearance hydraulic torque wrench sneaks up on him from behind.
TWSD1 with Torque Spanner
When radial nose clearance and/or width limitations prevent a standard wrench from fitting on to the nut, then the torque spanner fitted to a square drive wrench, plus roller reaction, might be a solution. This image shows one such wrench/spanner combination on test prior to despatch.
Training in Great Yarmouth
Technical tests being undertaken as part of the ECITB accredited Mechanical Joint Integrity training.
Taking it easy now - and looking mean!
After a hard days exertions Big Loz was taking it easy now and trying to look mean. But looks can be deceiving. Exhibitions are hard work and by this time Loz was on his last legs and the two young ladies in the picture were in fact holding him up as he had admitted to being exhausted and feeling a little faint.
Have a cup of tea on us!
Gee-Force was pleased to be networking sponsor at the event so the teas and coffees really were on us. And the six t-shirts we provided for the catering staff to wear were so sought after that four of them were nicked on the first night!
Anyone for tea?
These two lovely ladies kept everyone hydrated with cups of tea and coffee throughout the two days of the event. And look, they have got Gee-Force t-shirts on!
And again again!
Actually, this one was a bit feisty. When told that Big Loz had previously finished fourth in Worlds Strongest Man, Emma was unimpressed and suggested that maybe there had only been three other competitors. And then she sat on him!
Work, work, work. Boring.
SNS2014 Here we go again!
When you are Britains Strongest Man and you have the Worlds Strongest Man competition loomimg, you just have to keep working hard!
Big Loz at it again!

Yet again the magnet that is Big Loz effortlessly attracts the ladies!
Unaccustomed as I am
Centre stage, beer in hand!
Open Evening Cheque Presentation
On Thursday 27 February we marked our move to Kestrel Court by holding an open evening at the new premises for friends, family and local suppliers. Guests of honour were Burnley Council Leader Julie Cooper and Chief Executive Steve Rumbelow who took time out of a very busy day (see our blog about Vince Cable!) and Vikki Haydock of Pendleside Hospice to whom we were delighted to make a contribution to their marvellous fundraising efforts. All three were only prepared to be pictured with Graeme Cook if Laurence Shahlaei was in the picture as well. Astute or what!

Proud to be in Oil & Gas
As part of the "Energising the Nation's Future" initiative, Graeme had to put his camera grin to the test.
Burnley Business Awards
Gee-Force was nominated as one of four finalists in the Family Business of the Year category at the Burnley Business Awards evening in June. We didn't win the award but by 'eck we looked good!
Burnley Business Awards Nomination
Having been nominated as one of four finalists for the Family Business of the Year at the Burnley Business Awards, a photo session ensued ahead of the event itself. Jane, Emily and Dan all looking good but for some inexplicable reason, the MD's services were not required for the photoshoot!?!

Nick, Graeme, Laurence and Ian on the Gee-Force stand at EEEGR's SNS2013 Exhibition.
After picking up lots of people Laurence was getting a bit tired by the time Graeme took him on.

Laurence can pretty much pick up anything he wants!
And Another One!
A good view of the Gee-Force exhibition stand (it's the one behind the big guy lifting up another young lady).

We're Very Excited!
It doesn't take much to get us excited. Graeme and Nick discover a
