Deanna Operation Manager
"My Dad invented XtremeGrip and patented the product in 1998 so I have grown up around the products and manufacturing process. I took an active role in working here after my Dad passed away. GripAll is owned by shareholders but is a very family oriented business. Every person that works here is passionate about our product and has deep roots in the company. I appreciate being part of a business that allows me to be a part of a team of dedicated, creative people and the bonus is being able to see the products we create become a part of something amazing."
Josh Product testing / Development / Sales
"I live in the hills of Fairbanks, Alaska with my wife and militia of 6 children. I have been surfing the Earth in one form or another for the past 20 years resulting in a slight griptape obsession. My ideal day would be skateboarding on a mini-ramp raft on the Chena River, drinking HooDoo IPA, listening to D.I.Y. Punk with family and friends."
"I grew up in the windy city of Chicago, my brother got stationed up here in the Army and ever since I visited Alaska I told myself I needed to live there one day. I graduated from the American Academy of Art with a BFA in Illustration with a specialization in graphic design. Five days after graduating college I headed up to the Golden Heart city of Fairbanks, Alaska. I came across a hiring ad for GripAll, got called into GripAll on my birthday for an interview and got the job an hour later-great birthday present! I'm beyond proud to work for the people I do and the product we make. I've made lifelong friends and memories that I can hold onto forever."
Andre Spray Tech "genius"
"I'm Andre, born and raised on the big island of Hawaii. I'm an accomplished artist for the state of Alaska. I like to be creative with all my works. Enough said...spray it don't say it."
HERE & NOW
The entire GripAll team works to create and deliver the best traction materials on the market. Research and development, dedication and years of trial and error have made it possible to manufacture entirely in Alaska, our home state.
