Gordon Styles

President & CEO

Learn more about Gordon

Gordon Styles started out his career in 1983, at the age of 18, as a machining apprentice at his Father’s ten person precision engineering company. By 21, after the death of his Father, Gordon became owner and Managing Director. After years of struggling in an economically backward and industrially declining area, Gordon discovered 3D printing and soon became a national fast-growth high-tech success story as STYLES Rapid Prototyping Limited.

In 2000, the renamed 73-person STYLES Rapid Product Development Limited was sold to Japanese rapid prototyper ARRK. Gordon then went on to found another more traditional engineering company investing most of the proceeds from the first company, but sadly it failed within a few years. Disillusioned with the direction that UK industry and politics was taking, and fearing a huge recession, Gordon decided to try his luck in China.

Founded as a 3D printing and CNC machining company in Hong Kong in 2005, and later in 2007 in Zhongshan China; Star Rapid has grown organically from a one-person trading company to a 300-person manufacturing company. Having appointed a full management board, Gordon works as President and CEO of the company.

The goal now is to transform Star Rapid into a global example of excellence in Lean Manufacturing and Industry 4.0.
