Gripple staffer chosen as 2023 U.K. Wire Link Scholar, will attend Interwire

Sam Otter, wire rope global procurement manager at Gripple Limited, said that his company was well aware of the scholarship as James Curry, a production team leader, served as the 2019 Wire Link Scholar. Also, the company has hosted visits from the U.S. Wire Link Scholar at its Sheffield plant that manufactures wire joining and tensioning devices.
A Gripple management team selected four employees who were involved with wire in their day-to-day job roles, and Otter, who joined the company 15 years ago, was chosen. “I felt on top of the world, and it’s given me a huge confidence boost. I feel honored that my colleagues put me forward for this award, and also that an external judge could see my passion and enthusiasm for Gripple, wire rope and my desire to get as much as possible from this great experience.”
Otter, age 33, said that he never attended an industry event like Interwire before, and looks forward to that experience as well as visiting industry companies. “I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge with the different seminars and also meeting new contacts that hopefully will turn into new suppliers for Gripple.”
