Our business was born out of the need for hassle free cycling. We started with a service centre and then developed our bike repair station to support cycling everywhere. We now supply and manufacture all kinds of active travel products to help everyone enjoy their ride.

David has an energy unlike no other; his enthusiasm for adventure is contagious with a love of mountain biking, skiing, climbing…pretty much anything outdoors.

When he isn’t outside with the adrenaline pumping, he is cooking with his daughter.

David’s energy is what keeps the Grease monkey team motivated and passionate about what they do.


Ali Rogers
Commercial Manager & HR

[email protected]

Ali grew up in the great outdoors of Australia. As an avid traveller, she loves exploring the colder regions of the planet having been to both Antarctica and the Arctic. The best place to be? Anywhere on or near water, particularly the sea.

You’ll usually find her knees deep in a spreadsheet, on a yoga mat or petting a dog.

Her first bike was bright orange, with no gears, back-pedal brakes and she rode it everywhere.

Alex Kinsley
Operations Manager

Alex is big into mountains, whether it’s mountain biking, climbing, skiing or hiking – he’s there.

He is slowly developing a love for coffee, yet still struggles to make a good one for himself!

Alex loves tinkering, building and fixing things whenever possible.

But more importantly, Alex’s first dog will be named Jaffa after Jaffacakes (which are cakes, not biscuits).

Susan Laidlaw
Sales & Marketing Manager

Susan was brought up overseas, traveling every few years around Africa and Europe, but soon had Scotland calling to lay down some roots.

With a love of the outdoors from skiing, horse riding, running and with a new passion for paddleboarding, Susan is all about living life actively and having fun along the way.

Jack Brodie
Maintenance Manager

Jack loves putting on a pair of walking boots and getting out in all weathers, climbing mountains, going for a nice evening walk near home or along a beach, whilst listening to a good podcast or playlist with my favourite music.

His favourite pastimes are playing guitar and singing, recently starting to write and perform his own music.

Jack learnt how to ride a bike on his older brother’s BMX which had no seat or brakes.

+ Sustainability

Grease Monkey puts sustainability at the forefront of our business priorities. The current climate emergency drives everything we do. We genuinely want to create a more sustainable way of living, focusing on transportation, in our daily lives and activities.

The UK government has set a Carbon Net Zero target by 2050 and to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 compared with 1990 levels. One of the biggest challenges is to decarbonise transport and reduce fuel consumption.

Bicycles are energy efficient, do not contribute to noise pollution in urban environments and are a zero emission form of transport. Our Velobox unit physically provides secure storage for 12 bikes within one car parking space, whilst also promoting cycling. We want to:

  • provide a unit to securely store your bike to encourage the purchase and use of bicycles over other uses of fuel powered transport
  • promote a sustainable mode of transportation in urban environments
  • illustrate the efficiency of bike use in comparison to vehicles
  • persuade institutions, communities and businesses to further endorse our ethos and encourage their people to adopt cycling to and from their locations
+ Environmental Commitment

We recognise our operations, processes and manufacturing all have an impact on the environment, including the designs we create. We are committed to our business operations and sustainable design to minimise the impact of our activities on the natural environment. We are committed to:

  • conserving resources by ensuring energy efficiency in the units we design and supply
  • reducing waste generation at the source and encouraging recycling
  • specifying and promoting the use of recycled and recyclable materials to minimise the consumption of natural resources
  • preventing pollution and minimising adverse impacts on the environment and communities by considering the environmental, social and financial costs of products or services over the life-cycle
  • enhancing our circular economy without compromising on quality to ensure our products are as sustainable as possible with minimal waste
+ Future Design

Our Velobox has been made with simple frame geometry, refined connection and ergonomics for easy use and durability. The materiality has been minimised, whilst also providing adequate security and robustness. We want to build a unit that is simple to install and maintain, which will also endure inclement weather conditions and wear and tear to return maximum longevity. Grease Monkey are always refining its methods and processes in manufacturing and business to continually design for the future, and provide our customers with their desired solution.

We adopt a continuous innovation and improvement system.

Veloboxes’ design is adaptable to fit different uses; it can be altered to house buggies, scooters and mobility units where required, to bring a design that lasts and can live out future changes and requirements. To achieve genuine sustainability, we ‘make it last’.

+ Fair Work First

At Grease Monkey, we are committed to fostering a work environment that upholds principles of fairness, equity, diversity, and inclusion. We are a Fair Work First company and our policy outlines our commitment to promoting equal opportunities, preventing discrimination and harassment, ensuring fair compensation and benefits, and prioritising employee well-being.
