Russell Wilkinson, co-founder, talks about Hipco Yorkshire Ltd
Having worked for industry leading companies in Yorkshire for over 20 years, Dave, Reg and I have a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills. We came up with the conception of Hipco Yorkshire after constraints of being tied to certain suppliers and not feeling like we were delivering 100% of what our customers wanted.
Being an independent company, we have the freedom to select the best possible suppliers in order to fulfil bespoke projects for our customers. We chose our suppliers for no other reason than they are the best for what your project needs. And that means quality and value too.
Russ has always been in a customer service based role; he was introduced into this industry around 5 years ago and has been unstoppable since, learning and developing a unique talent for designing what his customer’s desire. Within Hipco Yorkshire, Russ is our Chief Designer and all rounder - he's not your typical salesman! You'll often find him onsite getting stuck in!
With over 30 years of fitting experience, Reg came straight into this industry from school. He has seen and done it all and if faced with a new challenge, he will tackle it head on. There isn’t much he can’t do! Reg’s main role at Hipco Yorkshire is Chief Problem Solver and master of hard work!
Chris joined the team late 2017 and has over 15 years’ experience in installation. He has his NVQ level 1-3 and has worked alongside his big brother Dave for the vast majority of his work life. They make a cracking team and have followed in their Dad’s footsteps, who was also in the business. He used to drive them around in the van pointing at various housing saying “I fit them windows!”. (I am told that they now do this themselves!) Chris almost went down a different path, starting out his career in Burger King but soon realised it wasn’t for him. He routinely enjoys a bacon & egg sarnie & a bottle of pop!
Surveyor & Installation Team
Dave is an accomplished joiner with over 20 years’ experience in installation and 5 years as Yorkshire’s top Surveyor; he has an array of qualifications including Advanced Craft, Installation and Fenestration levels 1 - 3 (the arrangement of windows to you and I!) Dave’s main role at Hipco Yorkshire is Chief Surveyor and master of a tape measure.
Office & Administration Manager
With a wealth of knowledge in Administration & Customer Service based roles, Amy is passionate about providing outstanding Customer Service, and has over 14 years’ experience in the industry. Amy has recently become a stay at home Mum, with 2 young children and as Hipco grew, starting in the family kitchen, she naturally stepped in and got involved with the admin side of things. (Mainly to cling on to some of her sanity, kitchen space and to keep Russ organised!)
Amy’s main role within Hipco is Chief Organiser & Master of the bacon butty!
