John Heseltine graduated from Swansea University in 1997 (B Eng in Civil Engineering). He took a graduate role with Helifix, and swiftly moved up through the Technical Support department to a Technical Area Manager working with Structural Engineers and designing repair strategies. In 2002, John moved away for 5 years gaining relevant experience in Concrete Repairs and Cathodic Protection systems with Fosroc Ltd, employed as Electrochemical Products Manager. In 2007, John returned to Helifix, this time promoted to the role of Technical Manager, and extended his role to training staff and clients in masonry defect diagnosis and treatment, as well as developing new products and applications for existing products. A crucial element of his role has been undertaking testing programs maintaining Helifix’s position as the leading innovative manufacturing company in the repair of historic masonry structures and managing the transition to the use of Eurocodes for design and the integration of CE Marking.
