Michael Ashley has joined Jablite as a specification manager to build relationships with architects, local authorities, engineers and other specifiers of insulation products.

Sales and marketing director David Teasdale explained: “Jablite has developed a range of unique insulation products that we want to inform architects and other specifiers about, and Michael has the experience to take on the task.”

Since graduating in 2000 as an automotive engineer, Mr Ashley has gained expertise at ACO and IKO, and for eight years was project consultant advising on specification at Marhsalls.

“Jablite is a company that is changing rapidly; it is developing new products and has a culture that encourages input and ideas through all levels of the business,” said Mr Ashley.

“That makes the challenge of pepping up the specification sales side of the business a very enjoyable task. My aim at the moment is to get in touch with architects to find out how Jablite can help provide a design solution for the building they want to create.

“I want to discuss specific projects with specifiers, and I am keen to get out and do some Continuing Professional Development (CPD) presentations about our innovative insulation products that might be new to many architects.”

He concluded: “I will be demonstrating exactly how Jablite can help architects design the building they want using our insulation.”
