James Latham and HI-MACS are enjoying a year of strong performance and high growth, with two months of record sales, a growing team and sights firmly set on new markets for the future.
With June and September averaging an increase in sales of over 22% compared to the same period in 2009, the UK’s largest timber and panel products distributor is on course to hit the tough targets set for this year with HI-MACS becoming increasingly favoured by architects in search of design oriented, highly durable material.
In order to meet rising demand, James Latham’s HI-MACS manager Steve Robinson has taken on a new sales manager in Steve Nock.
Steve Robinson said: “We already have a highly experienced team and with our new appointment we are now able to cover the entire UK for the first time. Steve has ten years’ experience on the fabrication side of the business which will give us a different perspective and allow us to offer even better solutions to our customers.”
With the residential sector a key target for James Latham, the new appointment is timed perfectly to coincide with a brand new sample box and brochure designed specifically to allow consumers to experience the quality of HI-MACS.
Steve said: “Overall, sales have grown almost 20% this year, and with the new literature, samples and personnel, I believe we are perfectly positioned to capitalise on the increasing demand for our products.”
