Alan Sherwin joins Altecnic

Published:  04 May, 2010

STAFFORD: Alan Sherwin is the new managing director at plumbing equipment manufacturer, Altecnic. He joined Altecnic in 2000 as finance director and helped raise £6m to fund the company's move to new premises last year.

Mr Sherwin said: "This is an exciting time to take the helm at Altecnic – we've weathered the economic downturn incredibly well. Whereas much of the construction industry experienced stagnation, we have actually bucked the trend and experienced growth throughout the recession.

"Having worked as part of the management team here for many years, I understand that plumbers and builders merchants respect us for offering uncompromising products supported by outstanding service from our staff. I'm looking forward to maintaining this culture within the company in my role as managing director."

Altenic set up in 1988 and in 2005 became part of the Caleffi group.
