    Beaver Sports Ltd.



    Beaver Sports is this year proudly celebrating its 20thanniversary. In 1982 the companies founder, the late Dennis Walker, was involved in the flooring and furnishing business mainly engaged in local government contract work, which at the time was a declining industry due to government spending cuts. He had an interest in water sports and after some research turned to making wet suits in an effort to provide continued employment for his staff and small factory located above his carpet shop. From these humble beginnings Dennis soon recognised a niche in the diving world and Beaver are now firmly established as a major global player in the dive industry.

    Martin Walker, Managing Director

    Martin Walker became Managing Director in 1987. Martin has been involved in his fathers various ventures from a young age and has gradually developed and transformed the company into todayís hi-tech business. He also continues his fatherís love of diving being a BSAC dive leader and PADI rescue diver and has developed a vast knowledge of the industry and divers needs, ensuring he uses his experience to keep his customers satisfied. Customer service has always been a top priority for Beaver.



    Location

    Beaver have operated from their current premises for the last 16 years and will shortly be completing the final part of a complete transformation of the facilities performed over the last few years. The whole interior is modern, bright and spacious with a total area of over 15,000 square feet. It is split into working areas dedicated to production, warehousing and office areas all providing a pleasant and safe working environment.

    Technology
    Beaver has embraced computerisation in all aspects; Even the cutting of suits is now performed using a state of the art CAD/CAM system. Beaver produce all their sales literature in house using fully automated Xerox equipment, catalogues are printed, collated, folded and stapled simply at the click of a mouse&#33; All stock control and order processing are performed using a custom designed computer programme, which ensures smooth operation and instant information. Investment continues in technology and equipment to optimise processes whenever possible.
