Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AWMS) continues to add to its growing team with the appointment of Ryan Odey as area sales manager for Alumasc Rainwater and Gatic Civil Drainage.

Mr Odey will cover the South West and South Wales for Rainwater, and the South West for Gatic.

His experience is in builders’ merchanting, starting his career as a trainee with Plumb Center before moving into a management role at Drain Center. He was also a manager at independent merchant Delta Plumbing and worked with Civils merchant UGS (later acquired by Keyline).

Rainwater national sales manager Pete Wainer said: “We’re pleased to welcome Ryan to the team. Alumasc Rainwater continues to grow strongly with a leading metal range - Aluminium, Cast Iron and Steel. Having a new representative in the South West will enhance the support we offer our merchant customers through site surveys, in-branch training, marketing and much more.”

Gatic national sales manager Steve Mascall added: “It has also been a busy 12 months since the launch of our innovative channel drain Filcoten to merchants so Ryan’s appointment is timely to support our growth. Filcoten gives merchants an edge in the market. It’s the first lightweight concrete channel drainage that is setting new standards in strength, installed performance and environmental compatibility, making it a robust and durable product for domestic and commercial projects. It leads in impact stability which means fewer breakages, easier to transport, and easier to handle and stock in-branch.”
