Knauf Marmorit UK shows impressive 20% annual growth

Knauf Marmorit UK, one of the leaders in external wall insulation systems, renders and finishes, continues to expand showing an impressive 20% year on year growth over the last five years and is confidently predicting an even higher growth rate for this year.

Instrumental in the company expansion has been Mark Meagrow, appointed as the new managing director last year and under his direction Knauf Marmorit has just moved to new larger office premises in Bristol, not far from its separate distribution hub.  Mark brings a wealth of experience to Knauf Marmorit having previously worked with Dorma UK and waterproofing manufacturers Icopal.

New appointments have been made to the management team, amongst which Steve Webber becomes the company’s product manager.  After three years as area sales manager, Steve’s new role is in sales support, marketing and product development for the company.  With many years’ experience with Forticrete and Redland Roof Tiles, Steve intrinsically understands the needs of the specifiers and the construction industry.  He is also on the marketing and training committees of INCA, the Insulated Render & Cladding Association. 

Mark Meagrow is delighted with the company’s progress to date, as he explains, “With the immense backing of a group like Knauf in Germany, we are well placed to refine our product offering to be ahead of the market, competitive and adaptable to customer needs”.  He adds, “Our focus is always on customer service and this is reflected in our newly structured management team”. 

Knauf Marmorit UK manufactures external insulation with its Knauf Warm Wall systems and also offers renders, base coats, finishes, render only and scratch render for a variety of building types.  The company also offers framed system solutions, façade paints, primers and insulation products.  Knauf Warm Wall insulation systems provide a simple and easy way to thermally upgrade buildings and this together with a range of render finishes and colours allows aesthetics to be achieved at the same time. 

Knauf Marmorit UK has recently been involved in some significant UK projects including marble render for Vision 21 in Ilford, Essex and scratch render for Port Marine Development in Portishead, Bristol.
