Wirquin has appointed a new Area Sales Manager for the South of England, Wales and the Channel Islands.

Grant Howarth joins the sanitary equipment specialist with experience in the industry since he was a teenager, when he would help his father to install kitchens and bathrooms in Jersey.

He began his selling career at Buildbase in Aylesbury aged 16, and ended up in charge of designing showrooms and selling bathrooms.

His new role will involve supporting buying group members in his area.

Howarth said: “I am delighted to be working with Wirquin.

“It has an amazing range of products and with so much innovation, specifying their products is an easy choice for customers.”
