In order to provide an increase in the dedicated product resources in support of the market development for Pilkington Activ™, the world’s first dual action self-cleaning glass, three new appointments have been made within Pilkington Building Products – UK & Ireland.
Commencing on the 31st October, the three highly experienced professionals will be working within designated areas to provide advice and support for specifiers, fabricators and installers on the increasingly wide choice of Pilkington Activ™ products, and their applications.
Lee Ackroyd will cover the South East region. Living in Whitstable, Kent, Lee has spent long periods with Impactex and Kawneer, and more recently with IGU manufacturer Uniglaze Two.
Living in Newport, Gwent, Roland Sarin will cover the South West region. Roland has wide experience of the window industry including positions with Status Systems, JK Furnex and Ashfield Group.
Tony Smith will cover the Midlands and the North of England from his Stratford on Avon home. Tony has commercial experience of several companies, including Indalex, Lightning Windows, and Alcan Windows.
All three will report to the Pilkington Activ™ product manager Ian Spokes who will continue to cover the North of England, Scotland and Ireland.
Ian, who has been responsible for the UK sales development of Pilkington Activ™ for the past two years, is delighted to be creating a team around him: “Pilkington Activ™ is now rapidly gaining in popularity,” says Ian. “We have some new additions to the range with more to follow and sales are going very well, in particular for Pilkington Activ™ Blue, our conservatory roofing solution. This highly experienced team will now be able to provide considerable hands-on support for our customers throughout the country.”
