Frese has appointed Steve Peet as regional sales manager for London and the South East.

Mr Peet said: "London and the South East offer huge potential for energy-saving products that Frese manufactures and supplies. The scale of construction activity in this region is significantly higher within the residential and commercial sectors.

“Frese PICVs and HIUs provide transformative science and technology solutions, and working in tandem with renewable heating and cooling solutions can help achieve the UK government's 80% cut in carbon emissions by 2050. My role will be to work with contractors and mechanical services consultants to demonstrate those benefits and continue Frese’s growth in this thriving region.”

With over 30 years' experience within the building services industry, Mr Peet has worked for Staefa Control, Strebel Heating Technology and Baxi Commercial, where he worked on renewable energy and biomass projects.

“Steve knows the industry inside and out and he is a great addition to our team in such a key area,” said Frese UK managing director Stephen Hart. “Construction in the South East is heating up. Our products are going to be critical to delivering the type of energy efficiencies and performance required to ensure cost effectiveness for contractors and building users now and in the future.”
