Polyseam, developer and manufacturer of an extensive range of sealants and adhesives for the building and construction industries, has appointed Richard Hogan as sales executive for the south of the country.

In this newly created role, Mr Hogan will be responsible for developing sales of the company's established own label products alongside ASF, a fire protection product and the recently launched IPT sealant range.

Neil Smith, sales and business development manager at Polyseam, said: "This is an exciting time at Polyseam as we build on proven expertise and start to develop new products to take advantage of the opportunities that undoubtedly exist in the UK market. With the majority of our products being developed and manufactured in the UK we are able to offer extensive technical support and guidance to our customers on the best use of these products."

"Polyseam is one of those rare companies; a successful UK manufacturer. The product range is constantly evolving and the latest addition, IPT, will help builders overcome many of the problems that can be incurred from using the incorrect sealant," commented Mr Hogan. 

Prior to joining Polyseam, Mr Hogan had accumulated over 20 years experience in the sealant and adhesive industry, the last six spent with leading sealant and adhesive producer Kommerling UK, so he has a good understanding of the market and some of the issues affecting the effective use of these products across the construction and civil engineering market place.
