Keylite Roof Windows (Keylite) has appointed James Malkin as Sales Director to help continue boost sales and growth.

With 25 years’ experience in the building sector on his CV, Malkin has worked for Aliaxis for more than 20 years – representing six brands across the UK.

Malkin commented: “In my day-to-day role as Sales Director for GB and Ireland at Keylite, I’ll be responsible for leading the sales team, supporting sales growth and account development within the distribution and housebuilder markets.

“I’m coming from a six-month stint as Trading Director for a John Nicholls Group merchant-based business in the Midlands and South Coast; but before that I was at Aliaxis for 20 plus years, leading the sales team as National Accounts Director.

“I feel that my 25 years’ experience in the manufacturing sector of building materials supply will help me with this role, alongside my extensive sales knowledge within the sector and strong relationships formed with many business partners.


“I have strong relationships within many sectors and the experience to deliver successful results. I make sure that customers are at the forefront and support the team to develop their skills to deliver growth.

“The Keylite Sales Director role sounded a really exciting proposition, and I’m aware that the wider Keystone Group has a great reputation within the building material supply and manufacturing sector.

“The commitment of Keylite to innovate and challenge the status quo really attracted me to the business. The entire team has a ‘can do’ attitude and the importance of current and future customers shines through at all levels.

“I hope to be successful and deliver the business’ growth aspirations, while working with an amazing team. It will be great to improve my knowledge and operate in a winning environment.”

Jim Blanthorne, Managing Director of Keylite, added: “We’re delighted to welcome James to Keylite. James brings a wealth of industry experience and we are confident that his knowledge and approach will enhance the Keylite team and further strengthen our service to customers.”
