As Founder and MD of BLK BOX, Gregory Bradley heads up one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of specialist fitness equipment for world class training facilities. Employing a team of 33 and with an impressive 40,000 sq ft HQ in the Titanic Quarter, Gregory has created a unique business in the heart of Belfast. He identified a gap in the market in 2012 when class-based fitness groups were taking off and there was a demand for specialist equipment. Their USP was, and is, to design and fit out gyms from start to finish – they are the only company in Ireland to offer this service. Their sporting client list includes Arsenal, Everton, Dublin GAA, Sri Lanka Cricket and the IRFU. They have created purpose-built home gyms for household names in the world of entertainment and their corporate clients include Linked-in, Google and Embody Dubai. Gregory will share the BLK BOX story and outline how they have embraced ‘digital’ in order to power growth at home & overseas.
