The Encon Group has launched a new division, Encon Construction Products, to service the infrastructure sector.

The company's goal is to become the UK’s ‘distributor of choice’ for six key product categories: masonry components, concrete and reinforcement, waterproofing, construction chemicals, geotechnical, and groundworking products.

In line with the rest of the company’s product portfolio, the new division will offer tailored solutions to new and existing customers from market-leading suppliers such as Adomast, Ancon, Expamet, GCP, Maccaferri, Sika, Visqueen, and Weber.

Encon has appointed Vaughan Taylor to head up the new division as National Sales Director, while Ed Matthews takes on the role of Business Development Director. The pair will be supported by a dedicated team of specialists from across the Group.

Commenting on the launch, Taylor said: “I am very happy to be taking the lead on the new Construction Products division, which allows Encon to bring its customer-centric approach and exceptional levels of specialist expertise to infrastructure and major building projects.

“I believe that we are well-placed to grow this new division alongside the company’s existing Encon and Nevill Long brands, offering the same benefits: nationwide coverage with reliable delivery services, a huge choice of leading products – and above all, sound, reliable technical advice.”
