david biggs


The God-Father of Prop-shafts, founder of the Company and our M.D.

Everyone in the business knows David. If there is something he doesn’t know about Prop-shafts then it isn’t worth knowing! A keen sailor he can regularly be seen on his yacht off the North Wales coast.



Eldest son and David look-a-like. Sometimes referred to as “Young David”.

As Company Secretary and Commercial Director he looks after all the commercial aspects of the business and oversees Purchasing. A very keen golfer in his youth (long time ago!) and still manages to play off 5 today. Has a liking for loud check trousers, but thankfully only on the golf course!



Alan is our pocket dynamo warehouse manager. He ensures the smooth running of the warehouse and despatch areas.

A family man with two young children who is also a keen footballer and life-long Blackburn Rovers fan (go figure!).

He can regularly be seen at weekends “running the line” as a linesman (Oops sorry Referees Assistant) at his son’s local 5-a-side football league.



Tony is our material controller and computer whiz-kid (well, hardly a “kid” anymore!)

He ensures that all material is ordered and delivered in a timely manner for both our warehouse and production facilities and regularly liaises with suppliers from around the World.

A keen rugby player in his youth and rumour has it that he once turned-down the All-Blacks (not really, but he can dream!)

He can still be seen at the rugby but nowadays his favoured position is sitting at the bar.

paul randle


Our chocolate loving Repair Shop Manager and life-long Aston Villa football fan. His prop-shaft knowledge goes way back (when he had hair!) and oversees the smooth running of our Repair Shop and OE build facility.

Away from work he is a keen sportsman enjoying especially cricket and fishing and loves spending time at his holiday caravan on the coast most weekends during the summer.

Richard Holyoak


Our quality manager is key to ensuring all our products meet the highest quality standards our customers expect.

A keen sportsman who loves a spot of fishing and golf and especially snooker & pool, using his keen eye for angles and can be regularly seen leaning at 45° at the bar of his local most weekends!

Steve Lafferty


Steve has been with the company for many years and recently took over the Engineering Manager’s role. He has a wealth of experience and ensures the smooth running of the workshop facilities ensuring all orders are machined and completed in a timely manner.

A keen golfer and is always looking for his next golf fix at the weekends. Away from the golf course he can be regularly seen in the local parks cycling with his Granddaughter.



Ron has been a fixture at IMS for many years in our sales department. With a wealth of knowledge and engineering background our “Silver Fox” is always willing to help customers on all aspects of our driveline products to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

Away from work Ron’s real passion is food….he regards himself as a connoisseur of fine food – not having a favourite food per se, but in his own words “I eat anything that doesn’t eat me!”



Stefan joined IMS many years ago and has been a key member of our Export Sales team ever since.

With many years experience in the propshaft business, Stefan is well regarded throughout the industry.

A life-long Aston Villa fan (he can actually remember the last time they won a trophy!) he always has an opinion on the weekend football results. He normally runs our company fantasy football league where Aston Villa win every week of course!

Away from work he is interested in cricket, football and most sports and is a manager of a local Sunday League football team.
