Altecnic has appointed Gary Swann as the new Sales Manager for Northern Ireland.

Part of the Caleffi group, Altecnic has an enviable track record for bringing approved and accredited products to market, particularly in critical areas of safety such as thermostatic mixing valves. The market for Caleffi products combined with Altecnic's market leading service has led to rapid growth across the UK. To cater for the increasing customer-base specifically in Northern Ireland, Gary Swann will cover the region from his base in Carrickfergus.

"I have been involved in the plumbing and heating industry for almost 20 years in various roles," says Gary, "recently joining Altecnic from another company in the HVAC industry where I was a Technical Sales Representative."

Gary has enjoyed a long and successful career having been promoted through various levels of HVAC product sales, including bathrooms, renewables and specialising in the electrical and plumbing trade. With such a broad background it is unsurprising that Gary has developed a wealth of knowledge and experience working on large volume projects as well as delivering presentations to architects, specifiers and installers.

For the last decade, Gary has also been involved in the natural gas industry in Northern Ireland, most recently as a Sales Manager. Not only has this involved a high level of customer service but being responsible for new build, social housing and owner occupier connections has also led to a broad-based understanding of domestic heating system installations and understanding customer needs.

Mark Mogey, OEM National Sales Manager at Altecnic, said: "Gary is a great addition to the team having developed key contacts with various stakeholder groups including the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, plumbing and heating installers, OEMs and merchants. All of these customers and more will benefit from Gary's experience combined with Caleffi's excellent products and Altecnic's legendary service."
