If you tuned into the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil or the 2016 UEFA EURO Championship in France, you’ll have seen the beautiful game played on a pitch marked out by a British manufacturer. Pitchmark is a family-run business specialising in innovative line marking paints, machines and accessories for grounds staff all over the world. It’s because of this dedication to research and development that we’ve made Pitchmark our Member of the Month for March.
Managing director, Mark Rodman, explains why being a member of Made in Britain is important to Pitchmark.
Industry knowledge is the key to success
Mark and the rest of the Pitchmark team have over 30 years of experience in the horticultural and amenity sector. It’s this intricate knowledge that allows Pitchmark to achieve the highest standards of customer service and quality. Mark says: “Our experience means we have a clear understanding of what groundsmen want. This allows us to be both proactive and reactive when it comes to offering the best products and bespoke solutions.”
British quality with worldwide appeal
Since forming the company in 2010, Mark’s vision has always been the same. He says: “We always want to provide the highest quality and most user-friendly products on the market at competitive prices. And the fact that we have a customer-focused approach makes us the number one choice in line marking internationally." From its base in Bristol, Pitchmark sells its products across the globe – elevating the standard of line marking on an international level. Mark says: “We work tirelessly to produce exciting and innovative ideas. This approach has paid off and our products are now sold in 30 countries worldwide.”
Proud to be members of Made in Britain
Despite only joining Made in Britain at the start of the year, Pitchmark has achieved one of the highest profile SEO scores on our members’ directory. Mark’s reason for being so committed to his membership is simple.
He says: “Being able to use the Made in Britain marque helps us to promote the identity of our company in every market we sell to around the world.”
With so many international prospects, would Pitchmark ever consider a move abroad? Mark is clear in his answer. He says: “We've always been proud of our roots. We believe firmly in manufacturing our products to a high standard here in the UK, where we have full control over the process from start to finish.”
