Bostik, the leading manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and building chemicals has strengthened its tiling offer for merchant customers with the introduction of two new team members and an extended product range.
Matt Gill has joined the team as Area Sales Manager (ASM) for Central England, with David Powell taking on a new role of Technical Sales Manager for the tiling division. Matt’s appointment brings the team of ASMs to 12 in total, enabling Bostik to carry out more face-to-face visits, trade events and product training on a nationwide level. All ASMs will continue to report to Shaun Lee, National Sales Manager.
In his new role as Technical Sales Manager, David Powell will work closely with merchant staff and tradespeople to provide tiling training and technical support, either out in the field or at the company’s training centre in Stafford.
Extended product range
The new range of Bostik products available to merchant customers provides a solution for almost every tiling requirement, including cementitious and ready mixed adhesives, grouts, sealants and other ancillary products.
Commenting on the news, Mat Basford, Sales Director for Trade & Wholesale at Bostik said: “With the addition of two new team members and an extended tiling range, our ASM team can cover more areas of the country to support our customers’ needs with professional trade quality products.
“By utilising David’s expertise in the new role of Technical Sales Manager, we’re also able to deliver more practical training and advice. This will enable merchant customers to learn more about product performance and gives a greater understanding of the latest developments in the tiling category, equipping them with the knowledge they need to advise customers in-store.”
