Greg Cumming

Production Manager

Greg has been with our team since 2010 when he helped with the initial set up of the business. Starting with ArmorGalv Australia on the production floor as a labourer loading and unloading containers, he has progressed through the ranks and has a strong technical knowledge on all aspects of the ArmorGalv® coating process.

With a background in manufacturing and front-line management, Greg’s drive comes from self-motivation and discipline, always putting his best foot forward and working hard towards achieving professional and personal goals.

Greg is family oriented with a young family, which takes up most of his time. His weekends are mostly spent doing DIY house renovations, landscaping, and trying to squeeze in some relaxation time.

Greg loves all sports for the competition but has a keen interest in rugby league and supercars (and grew up playing footy and cricket).
