Meet the Team

Katy Moss

Katy Moss - Managing Director

Katy began managing the business after her late father and founder (Robert Crossland) of Trent passed away in 2011. The importance of maintaining the family business that Bob had worked most of his years in building is what motivates her.

Having a background in business management, finance and customer relationships Katy believes that Service and Quality should be of the highest standard in everything we do and continues to strive for this.

Katy said "My aim is to continue to build upon the firm foundations of this business; to make our company one that people want to buy from because of our values and ethics whilst also delivering best value for our customers".

Zena brings an abundance of technical knowledge in the refractory industry, having worked her way through the ranks in a major refractory company.

She is highly respected amongst her peers and her practical, no nonsense approach to her work is refreshing. She is not afraid to get stuck in and can give effective straight forward solutions without jargon.
