Promat has announced the appointment of Dan Gregory as its business development manager for technical insulation.

Mr Gregory brings with him experience of commercial and technical roles in both the insulation sector and the oil industry, and believes this will be a key strength in his new role.

“I’ll be working with our distributors and focussing on certain niche products such as Promat Promafour,” said Mr Gregory. “This is one of our more specialist products which has recently been launched in the UK market, and I’ll be providing both technical and commercial support to our specialist distributors, and also helping to increase awareness of this type of product among their end-user customers.

“Since Promat Promafour was launched in the UK a year ago, the response has been tremendous and a little overwhelming. Awareness of it as a safe, economical and reliable chimney breast system for inset type fireplaces is growing rapidly. My challenge is therefore to introduce the system to the market as efficiently as possible.”

“Adding Dan to our UK team is an important step forward for us,” said Peter Keenan, sales director, building. “Our product range in the UK is far wider than many people realise, and we’re always looking to add new elements to it.

“To do that successfully we must give our customers all the support they need to benefit from these opportunities, and with people such as Dan on the team we’re perfectly placed to do exactly that.”
