Rehau has appointed Robert Benn as Commercial Sales Manager for Window Solutions, North.

Benn comes to the polymer solutions provider after more than five years as an Estimating Manager with Kingfisher Windows. His new responsibilities involve assisting installers on both residential and commercial projects in the north of the UK.

Benn commented: “My last role gave me first-hand experience working with suppliers such as Rehau, which I’m keen to take forward and use in this new position.

“I’m excited to build relationships with installers, architects and specifiers alike, and understand their specific requirements to help them overcome any challenges.”

Speaking on Benn’s appointment, Barry Gilligan, Sales Director for Windows Solutions at Rehau, added: “Robert’s vast knowledge of the entire construction process – gained from working with window fabricators and installers – equip him with unique skills which I am looking forward to seeing him apply in his role.

“ I am highly confident he will excel at Rehau, given his insight into areas of the construction process which often lead to issues on-site and completing jobs.”

Benn’s appointment is one of a number planned for Rehau’s Windows Solutions division, as the company strengthens its UK-wide support, and as the fenestration industry continues its recovery from the pandemic and navigates soaring demand levels.

Benn concluded: “The industry has changed significantly since I started out, and challenges associated with supply and demand make it even more important for windows professionals to invest in high-quality systems.

“Having built up extensive knowledge of PVC window solutions to date, I’m eager to apply my knowledge when working with Rehau’s wide and varied customer base.

“It is an honour to join the largest and most sought-after profile company in the industry, not least because their strong environmental and employee values reflect my own principles.”
