Rin Sahark / Director

Rin is a highly accomplished business professional from Thailand, with a wealth of industry experience. After earning her Bachelor’s degree, she worked with a number of national and multinational importers, where she held various marketing and operational roles. This gave her a deep understanding of the intricacies of the industry and helped her develop a strong business acumen. In 2017, Rin moved to the UK and founded UKHelix, a company that has quickly become renowned for its outstanding customer service. Rin’s commitment to excellence and her dedication to providing her clients with the best possible experience have earned her a reputation as a market leader in the industry.

Robin Gamble / Director

With an extensive background in plant hire, corporate training, and wellness, Robin’s diverse experiences have led him to unexpected opportunities. It was during a chance Judo lesson in the South of Thailand that he met Tero Paunonen, the owner of Paalupiste Oy, one of Europe’s leading screw pile manufacturers. Recognising the potential for collaboration, upon returning to England, Robin established Helix as Paalupiste’s exclusive agent in the UK. This partnership has enabled UKHelix to bring innovative and reliable solutions to the UK market, while also expanding Paalupiste’s global reach.

Two decades ago, Tero established Paalupiste Oy with the goal of providing the Finnish market with high-quality screw-piles. Over time, he has expanded the company’s reach to include projects across Europe and beyond, ranging from road signs to railway services. Today, Paalupiste Oy supplies its high-quality construction grade European steel products to countries such as Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Africa, and Iraq. Despite this growth, the company’s commitment to using only the finest European steel fabricated in Finland has remained steadfast.
