Emplas has announced restructure of its senior management team as part of three-year strategic growth plan through to 2020.

With significant and continuing growth in Q1 and Q2 this year and following on from increased sales last year, the organisational review sees Emplas bring new and experienced personnel, to its senior leadership team. 

This sees Ryan Johnson, continue to head the business as Managing Director. Kush Patel, formerly Emplas’ Operations Director, steps up to a new position as Deputy Managing Director, while Philip Brown continues in his tenure as Financial Director. 

Ray Sinclair, assumes a new role of Operations Director, while John Leary, is Emplas’ recently appointed Sales and Marketing Director.  Roberto Canassa, is also promoted to board level as IT Director. 

Kevin Johnson will continue to offer strategic leadership to the business as Emplas’ Chairman, while its board will also be supported by a newly created management team. 

Ryan Johnson, Managing Director, Emplas said: “We have seen some great growth but recognise that we need the right people-  not just the right infrastructure – in place to ensure that it continues to be delivered sustainably. 

“The appointments that we have made, allows us to bring some exceptionally experienced people into senior roles, which gives us depth and resource as a team to fulfil our ambitions for future growth. 

“Importantly this needs to be focussed and deliver for our customers, whether that’s through product innovation or improved customer service and support.”

Emplas added Profile 22’s new Optima suite to its offer last year, launching the new Optima Flush system at the beginning of  this year.

It added the UltraRoof 380 from Ultraframe to its offer in Spring, while the G15 Fabricator of the Year has recently upgraded its’ composite door offer to offer Secured by Design specification as Standard. 

Emplas also recently announced the expansion of its ex-stock colour range.  Cutting lead times and reducing costs, foiled Cream, Anthracite Grey, Anthracite Grey on White, Black Brown, and Black Brown on White are now available as ex-stock standard colours.

Product innovation has been accompanied by major expansion of Emplas’ manufacturing capability, including investment in new machinery and a 18,000 sq ft extension of its factory.

This has also included the integration of its manufacturing and IT infrastructures with those of customer services and client software tools, to offer improved transparency and service to its customers.

“We have been very clear that the £3 million plus investment that we’re making in the factory and in our IT infrastructure has to translate directly into an improved service and support offer for our customers”, continued Ryan.

“Transparency and visibility on orders is incredibly important because it means that everyone is ‘singing off the same hymn sheet’ – production, customer services and installers – and that makes for a far better level of customer service. 

“We have a cutting-edge system in Optima but it’s the service and support that we can offer to our customers which is key to our growth. That’s about systems and it’s about people - and we’re investing in each.”
