The changes which come in to effect from January 1, 2007, will mean that the company is in a better position to provide sales and advice and support to both existing and new customers. Phil Turley will continue to lead this division of the company but will be assisted by Richard Hogan, who joined Kommerling 18 months ago and has been working within the company’s other sealant divisions.
Commenting on the restructuring, Lee Foulkes, commercial manager, said; “The glass market accounts for a significant percentage of our business in the UK and it became clear that is was under resourced and we were not maximising on the opportunities. Phil has done an excellent job in developing our role in the market place over the past few years and now with the additional help from Richard, we will be able to be more responsive to the needs of our customers.”
In addition, Ken Earles, technical manager, will increase his level of involvement with customers. This will ensure that organisations developing leading edge solutions for a range of glazing applications will have access to greater technical support, and product development and evaluation resources. With new legislation and ever increasing awareness of climate issues both end users and fabricators are pushing the market to provide more efficient and cost effective solutions for glazing products.
