Tyman's predecessor company was an industrial conglomerate with interests in oil services, building products and industrial coupling businesses. In 2009 a new Board of Directors was appointed which aligned the Group’s strategy and recruited a new executive leadership team in Louis Eperjesi and James Brotherton.
Since 2010 the leadership team has refocused the business, disposing of non-core assets, strengthening the divisional management teams and investing in the business through targeted capital investment and mergers and acquisitions.
In 2013, the Group changed its name to Tyman plc. Tyman is derived from an Old English word meaning “to turn” and is felt to be a simple, solid and more relevant expression of the Group’s activities and product offering worldwide.
