Kitchen and bathroom company JP Distribution has appointed a new Commercial Director.

Tony Barnes brings a wealth of experience to the business, spanning over 20 years in the industry. Barnes has had many years of experience leading sales and commercial activities in the Building Products sector including time in the Bathroom Division of the Spring Ram Corporation back in 1996, and has remained in the bathrooms, radiators and underfloor heating business ever since, including a nine-year stint with his own business that is still run by the family.

Managing Director Graham Bucktrout said: “We are really pleased that Tony has joined the business at this time. We have worked together successfully before and his skillset is perfectly aligned to where our business is focussed.

“That’s in delivering great customer service, building relationships and broadening into new markets. I’m confident that under Tony’s leadership, our experienced and valued team at JP will develop and grow in the current uncertain climate.”
