Nothing typifies the future of Gunn and Moore than these pictures of new apprentice James Perkins being put through his paces by master craftsman Kevin Stimpson.
Even though GM uses the world’s most advanced manufacturing process, it is the knowledge and experience of people like Kevin, who has been with the company for 38 years, being passed down through the generations to apprentices like James that enables Gunn & Moore to combine technology with tradition to make the finest cricket bats available – as will be shown in the soon-to-be launched 2013 UK range.
However, Gunn & Moore is also looking to the future by supporting some of the world’s best young players. The new GM International Cricket Academy launched this week on this website shows our commitment to the future of the sport and the development of cricketers on a worldwide basis. The inaugural members are those players who have been selected in the various squads to represent their countries in the 2012 Under 19 World Cup.
The Gunn & Moore family is also extended this week with the launch of a new website for GM South Africa, an update to the GM Australia website and confirmation of a new one for New Zealand – coming soon. These developments show the determination and international strength of the GM brand.
So Gunn & Moore are really pushing back the boundaries; geographically, technically, with cricketers and most importantly with the Art of Batmaking.
The future’s really great with Gunn & Moore.
