A guide to Securiclad's staff

Our highly skilled team are here to advise and guide you through the purchase, design, project management and installation process. We’re here to help.

  • Mike McColl
    Managing Director

    As managing director of both Securiclad and our parent company Isoclad, Mike takes overall responsibility for all strategic and financial aspects of the business operation.

    A degree in mechanical engineering as well as a graduate apprenticeship in heavy engineering has paved the way for a career based exclusively in the manufacturing sector.  The long term ‘hands on’ experience has proven invaluable to the business – particularly in the area of product development in which Mike takes a keen interest.  The Securiclad product and its evolution has benefitted greatly from Mike’s background and knowledge.  He prides himself on listening to customer and client issues with a view to solving them in a practical manner.

    Mike joined Isoclad in 1998 before taking ownership of the business in 2003, when he assumed the position of Managing Director.
