Gordon graduated from Stockport College with a HND in Civil Engineering and joined the family business, which marketed and sold geotextiles. He had been involved with the business since he was eight years old, travelling to sites throughout the North West of England.
He then built and launched the Antinox temporary protection materials business whilst still being involved with the geosynthetic business, in a management capacity. After returning to work after illness, he dedicated himself to building the Stratec business and is now successfully leading this business in the next phase of its development.
