Team Focus – John Hailey

By | Esterlam | No Comments


As a family run business, we have renowned reputation for understanding our client’s requirements as well as building a truly friendly working relationship as we go. Our history and expertise in the industry has led to a worldwide presence throughout an extensive network of technical agents, who can supply Esterlam doctor blade products with full and comprehensive technical support at over 100 countries worldwide.

But who is the team behind Esterlam?  This week we start our series looking at the team behind the brand and find out a little more about the company.

John Hailey – Esterlam’s Manager Director

After John’s parents, Don and Joy Hailey, innovated and created the world’s first synthetic laminate Doctor Blade in the 1970’s, John joined the sales and production team to help further launch the blades to a global audience.  With a passion for innovative design, John’s experience within the print industry is second-to-none and he’s a stickler for perfection!

“The culture here at Esterlam is one of informal professionalism. The standards we aspire to are reflected in the quality of our products and the team at Esterlam strive for that same high standard and work extremely hard to achieve the very best for our customers.
I believe that the real enthusiasm and dedication from our team means that we can produce and deliver the very best synthetic doctor blades

My role in Esterlam has two aspects to it. The first is the role of leading the business with clear corporate governance responsibilities and the second element is that of driving the business tactically, strategically and operationally.
We’re very much a family business, and we have always been able to maintain that sense of belonging, which we think attributes greatly to our success. I enjoy working with my team as they are a tremendous combination of being “serious about business, as well as having fun along the way.”
