Awesome Passionate People

Awesome, Passionate People

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little bit bored. 

OK. I know what you’re thinking, a man with a passion for gaskets becomes bored – hardly the news story of the decade, is it?

Don’t worry, I’m not bored with gaskets. Or hoses. Or any of the multitude of high purity bits of kit we proudly stock here at Pure Transfer. 

Not even close. 

What I’m bored with is celebrating the wrong people. 

I believe that, as a society, we keep putting the least interesting folk from amongst our number onto pedestals – to act as examples for everyone else. I’m fed up with listening to the ins and outs of the lives of people who seem to be famous for no good reason! 

  • X said something nasty about Y on Twitter. Oh dear. 
  • Z has a new haircut. Really? How fascinating. 
  • P has ‘opened up’ about their ‘difficult’ gap year delivering pizza. Wake me up if I nod off. 

Why is it that we’re obsessed with this day to day dullness?

Personally, I think it’s time for some new role-models. I want to start celebrating people who live driven, dynamic and different lives away from the glare of the paparazzi’s lens. I’m talking about awesome, passionate people and they’re absolutely fascinating. 

These are the people who decided to go their own way. What drives them is a desire to be the best version of themselves. Some saw a problem and wanted to fix it. Others have always been fascinated by a subject, so decided to take their knowledge as far as possible. More still, simply refuse to be bound by conventions and ‘the way things have always been done’. These aren’t fame-hungry people, they’re interested in achieving something tangible in their own quiet way. 

It’s time to shine a spotlight on the work done by these awesome, passionate people. So, over the following months, I’d like to introduce you to some amazing individuals who’ve come into my life and inspired me. 

Watch this space. We promise you won’t be bored.

Pure transfer mission statement

Mission statement

Life’s too short to be a miserable $%@!

As far as I’m concerned, happiness in our lives, in our work and in our families is just too important not to feel strongly about it. I’m determined to enjoy every minute of every day.

So, what does all this have to do with Pure Transfer? How does this fit into the world of high purity hoses and gaskets?

Passion. That’s the connection.

I believe that the key to happiness is to find your passions and pursue them, doggedly.
Back when I started Pure Transfer, I did it with passion. I don’t believe in doing anything by halves. I refuse to settle for second best. I understand the world of high purity components, hoses and gaskets, might not sound glamourous to the uninitiated, but that doesn’t stop them being vital to pharmaceutical & biotech manufacturing facilities. I was single minded in my belief that Pure Transfer should provide unsurpassed expertise and support to customers in this important field.

Our job was to be the best.


I’m determined that the hours I must spend away from my loved ones will always count for something positive. Time is precious, so in every moment I spend piloting Pure Transfer, I’m committed to doing the best job I can.

Pure Transfer’s philosophy is all about excellence; something our customers recognise.

As the business has expanded, my passion has grown with it. These days, I’m proud to say that I have a mission. My goal isn’t world peace or teaching everyone to sing in harmony, yet it’s equally noble.
My mission, here at Pure Transfer, is to ‘Rid the world of over-compressed gaskets & to improve the working life of high purity hoses’.

OK, it might not sound like much, but success would mean dramatically reducing the ‘downtime’ caused by failing components – one of the top priorities of every manufacturing facility on the planet!
We’ll get there, believe me. Just watch this space…”
