Setcrete have added Matt Smith and Robert Sheppard to the payroll.

Leading floor levelling compound manufacturer Setcrete has appointed two new area sales representatives to provide sales support to builders and the company’s expanding network of builders’ merchant customers.

Matt Smith will operate in the north of England and Scotland, while Robert Sheppard will cover South Wales and the south-west of England.

The appointments follow sustained growth in sales of Setcrete’s range of high-performance floor levelling compounds and repair mortars and an increase in the number of merchants stocking Setcrete products.

Smith joins from a leading building materials supplier, where he was responsible for the account management of a portfolio of merchant customers, as well as direct sales to key accounts within the group.

Sheppard was formerly Area Sales Manager for a recognised manufacturer, having previously been an Area Sales and General Manager for different companies.

Sheppard said: “Having worked in construction sales for my whole career, the opportunity to work with Setcrete and its industry-leading products held huge appeal for me.”

Smith added: “Setcrete’s approach to business combines industry-leading product development with traditional family values, so you can’t help but be enthused about the products and have the confidence of knowing there’s a supportive team behind you.”

Setcrete Brand Manager, Peter Wilson, said: “Matt and Robert are great additions to our team and will help us to maintain the high level of service our customers associate with Setcrete, including product support, merchandising and hosting merchant branch demonstration days, while helping us to further grow our merchant network across the UK.”
