We are delighted to announce that we have hired Jan McGrath; a seasoned concrete and heavy building materials sales specialist, as our Area Sales Manager (ASM) for the south-east region.
As part of our on-going expansion, we have appointed Jan to grow our merchant customer base in London and the south east of England selling not only the firm’s traditional concrete lintel range but also our steel lintel products as well as flooring, cast stone and fencing and walling items.
Based in Colchester, Jan brings with him a plethora of experience not least from the heavy building materials industry and concrete markets. Jan has over 30 years of experience selling aggregates, asphalt, bulk cement and concrete, and has worked for industry giants Lafarge and Cemex as well as smaller companies like Quinn Building Products and Easymix Concrete.
In addition to his industrial background, Jan has a TEC certificate in Civil Engineering as well as City and Guilds certificates in Concrete Technology; both Principles and Practical Applications.
Jan’s experience in the industry has seen him build relationships with many merchants, something he is keen to build on with Stressline; he comments:
“Having worked with so many merchants over the years I am looking forward to meeting even more in the south-east and discussing the Stressline product range with them.”
Away from work, Jan enjoys the occasional game of golf and is a keen woodworker using recycled wood.
Jan started in the first week of October and is already busy making his way round the merchants.
