Synseal Group has strengthened its manufacturing division with the appointment of Robert Long as Manufacturing Director for Synseal’s PVC-U and aluminium production.

Rob joins Synseal from the Whittan Group, the UK’s largest manufacturer of steel storage products, where he spent 18 months as Operations Manager consolidating the footprint of a £110m turnover part of their business.

Before this, Rob spent six years at Eurocell as General Manager having forged his career in the building materials industry, spending five years in change management and operational management at Tarmac.

Based at Synseal’s headquarters in Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire, Rob will oversee Synseal’s vast extrusion operations, as well as production of their conservatory roof products and fabricated WarmCore and Evolve ranges.

He joins recently appointed Chief Operating Officer Mark Timmons as part of a new team dedicated to updating the Group’s manufacturing processes to support the continued growth of products like the WarmCore aluminium range, which now includes onsite production of the inline patio door.

Commenting on his appointment, Rob said:

I’m excited to be joining Synseal to help drive through a number of key changes in their manufacturing operations, including the substantial investment they are making in a new, modern warehouse management system.

I will be working alongside some extremely skilled and increasingly motivated colleagues so am delighted to be part of the team. We will look to implement a continually improving work culture and embed some key organisational principles as we strive to offer the best service to our customers.

COO Mark Timmons added:

Rob brings a wealth of manufacturing experience to Synseal and is sure to add significant value to our manufacturing operation, both in terms of the quality we deliver to our customers and in helping us to modernise our practices in line with world class manufacturing techniques.
