RAVATHERM UK, the POLYFOAM™ XPS insulation manufacturer, has appointed new members to its team as the company celebrates continued growth.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the construction industry, Danny Clark will take the position of business development manager for the north region, whilst two new customer service personnel have also joined the company.
Working closely with contractors and distributors to ensure needs and demand is met, Danny will be mainly field-based, identifying and securing new opportunities and building relationships within the sector.
Danny has succeeded his way through the ranks from working on-site, to contracts manager, as well as sales and distribution roles. Prior to joining RAVATHERM UK LTD , Danny’s experience includes working at Minster Insulation & Dry Lining, USG building products and ITW Construction Products.
Danny said: “I am really looking forward to getting stuck into my new role. This is a really exciting time for the company and I believe my sales and distribution experience can help the business to grow. I love working with people and helping to find a solution for a project. I’ve been in the industry for two decades and know how the supply chain and contractors operate, which I’m sure will stand me in good stead at RAVATHERM UK LTD .”
Danny’s appointment also comes with the introduction of a customer services team at RAVATHERM UK LTD ’s headquarters in Hartlepool. Susan George and Clare Twizell act as the first port of call for customers calling with enquiries and visitors on-site.
This new division of the Hartlepool plant means processing orders for delivery will now be managed in-house – a new and improved way of working for RAVATHERM UK LTD, providing a more streamlined service for customers. In their newly created roles, Susan and Clare have immediate access to information relating to stock, production and logistics, enabling them to answer pricing and availability enquiries instantly.
Managing director of RAVATHERM UK LTD, Stuart Bell, added: “We are delighted to welcome Danny, Sue and Clare to the RAVATHERM UK LTD team. The business has gone from strength to strength since the start of the year, and we have been able to invest further in our people and processes. As a company that has established success in the XPS business, the growing team can only strengthen our offering to the market place.”
