Gordon Tarburton joined Lion Containers in September 2015 as Fabrications Manager then moving to Sales Manager in 2018. Gordon has worked in the container industry for in excess of twenty years honing his expertise in container and accommodation hire, sales and modifications for both multi-national and local container companies. Gordon is based in the Lion Containers head office in Cannock.
Since working at Lion Containers, Gordon has had a valuable input in all things fabrication, his experience and expertise have been perfectly applied to every conversion project he has been involved with and his key success has been in ensuring these projects run smoothly. Gordon’s favourite project has been a number of large modular offices that were built for a multi-national company to a bespoke specification, “I really enjoyed the level of project management I had with this build from the initial enquiry to the site set up and modular linking”. Gordon certainly takes a hands on approach with these projects and can often be found getting involved with the fabrication works on site.
Gordon’s favourite aspect of his role is the relationships he builds and develops with Lion suppliers and customers, “every moment” is a favourite moment for Gordon.
Outside of work, Gordon enjoys football (particularly Liverpool FC), rugby league and fast cars. His pet hate is (predictably) Manchester United and if he was not a container expert, he would still be a container expert!
