SWISSPACER appoints new Market Development Manager

SWISSPACER, the warm edge spacer bar market leader, appoints John Cooper as Market Development Manager for the UK and Ireland.

John’s role has been created to support the growing market in the UK and Ireland and SWISSPACER’s growing share.    

John will work closely with Vic De Costa in the UK and the team in Europe to continue the growing success of SWISSPACER sales in the UK and Ireland.

Starting his career as Sales Administrator at Alcan Aluminium, John moved to Cotswold Architectural Products as Sales Representative and then back to Alcan as a Field Sales Manager before moving to Schuco Interntational. He worked his way up to National Commercial Manager at Schuco. These roles allowed John to develop a wide range of skills from sales to project management and business development, as well as gaining a deep industry knowledge.

John says: “I was with Schuco for 24 years and had every sales management job possible. I guess I needed a fresh challenge before my milestone birthday! I was very impressed by SWISSPACER’s visionary thinking and positive approach to sales, marketing, and people in particular.

“I was obviously aware of SWISSPACER, the warm edge market leader, from my market experience, and knew they sold the best performing products. It was a big decision for me to change my job after such a long time, but I am really excited about this new opportunity.”

Peter Appel, SWISSPACER Marketing and Sales Director, adds: “I’m very pleased that John is now a part of SWISSPACER. He has valued experience in business development and sales, and I’m confident he will bring fresh ideas into his new role. Welcome to the team John!”
