Jason Hemingway has been promoted to the role of National Sales Director for Major Projects and Infrastructure.

He will lead a new team at construction products distributor SIG to focus specifically on the early stages of major projects and infrastructure. Reflecting this early stage intervention, the team includes industry specialists in the fields of geotextiles, concrete repair, waterproofing and specialist fixings, and rationalises the experience gained in working on mega projects, such as Hinckley Power station and HS2.

With over a decade’s experience at SIG, Hemingway highlights the unique SIG offer: “Every project starts below ground level and this new offer assembles an unrivalled range of expertise and specialist products for the first stages of any construction.

“This newly strengthened specialism will capitalise on the strength of the SIG group. Price is always important on huge construction projects but so is the ability to invest in the specific accreditations, governance and protocols required by publicly funded or high-security sites.

“The sheer scale of SIG plc gives us the ability to make this investment while working on projects that may not get on site for years, which is an important part of the offer.”

SIG points to its team of sector specialists in ground engineering, waterproofing and concrete repair, and to the vast range of product solutions available to them – including a number of exclusive supply agreements from specialist manufacturers. The offer is around design expertise to maximise the performance and efficiency of the design solution right at the outset.

The Major Projects and Infrastructure offer combines the strengths of SIG Construction Accessories and Miers Construction Products together with Complete Construction Products, specialising in admixtures and ancillaries, Kestral Construction Products specialising in concrete repair and formwork, MCP Fixings specialising in fasteners, and F30 Building Products providing strong regional support.
