We recently celebrated Elvin Majchrzak’s 70th birthday.

Elvin is our current Chairman and one of the original founders of Tufcot.

Tufcot was established in 1981 and Elvin has been there every step of the way.

He has guided the company from its humble roots in his own garage to its current location in Coleford Road, Sheffield where it employs over 50 people.

Having started the business with his Dad, Tufcot has always been a family business.

And now that 3 of Elvin’s children work within the business, this family-focused approach is likely to continue for generations to come.

How Tufcot Began

Tufcot was established in 1981 by three equal shareholders; Michael, Elvin and Len.

As mentioned above, the initial phases of Tufcot’s production took place in Elvin’s garage and involved a sole manufacturing machine and a sole lathe machine!

As the business grew, Tufcot moved through a series of larger and larger rented units in and around Sheffield before purchasing a new factory based only a few miles from our current site in Sheffield. For 15 years, Tufcot continued to grow and expand, with up to 20 employees and over 40 machines.

In 2011, it was decided that we would be moving for the 4th time.

As a result, in June 2012, Tufcot arrived at its current home on Coleford Road, Sheffield, UK.

The Future of Tufcot

Elvin is very proud that 3 of his children work within the Tufcot team and believes they are a vital part of Tufcot’s future.

  • Greg Majchrzak – After working in numerous departments in the business, Greg has risen to be the current Managing Director. Greg has proven to be a true asset as MD, overseeing continual growth for the last 15+ years.

  • Chrissie Chadbourne – Elvin’s daughter, Chrissie, works as the Financial Director, overseeing all financial aspects of the business.

  • Katy Thorne – Elvin’s daughter, Katy, works as Purchasing Manager and is responsible for procuring the goods and services required to help Tufcot run smoothly.

I am extremely proud of the progress we’ve made here at Tufcot.

I have 4 children and 9 grandchildren and my ultimate goal is to pass the company on to them.

That’s what all the hard work has been for!
