Altecnic strengthens its trade support team


Heating and plumbing supplies specialist Altecnic is strengthening its market-leading position by restructuring its trade sales team and recruiting two new area sales managers. The two new additions to Altecnic's 16-strong team add to the diverse and vast experience of the Trade Sales Team gained in a variety of roles in the plumbing and heating industry, as well as maximising the coverage of the UK.

Dave Bond joins as area sales manager for London and the South and Robert Bellingham will cover Scotland and the North East. Both have many years' experience within the plumbing and heating industry, including running merchant branches.

Dave, who was previously at Reliance Water Controls, will support the team in offering domestic and commercial products to merchants and contractors in the south of the country. Robert, who recently ran the Hamilton branch of Scottish independent plumbing supplies merchant, Richmonds, is looking to develop Altecnic's presence in Scotland and the north of England.

Steve Boyd, who heads up Altecnic's national trade sales team, says, "We have a very exciting 2019 ahead of us, with plenty of change as we continue to grow and build our presence in the market. I'm delighted to welcome Dave and Robert to the trade sales team. These guys have been Altecnic's customers for many years and not only know the products inside out, but also know the merchants and installers and appreciate their unique needs and the issues they face."

Under Steve's management, Altecnic's trade sales team will focus on relationship selling by allowing more time to build strong relationships regionally with both contractors and merchants.

Steve adds, "We're committed to quality in all areas and are working to set the benchmark for pre- and post-sales support. The strength of our team will continue to drive Altecnic forward."

Altecnic is committed to providing high quality heating and plumbing components for both the commercial and domestic sectors. The company has recently achieved a number of firsts in terms of product and training developments. Its range of Intaball gas lever ball valves was the first to be certified to EN 331:2015 (Class C), while its technical and specification teams have recently been awarded CIBSE accreditation as heat consultants and the company hasdeveloped a series of CIBSE-approved CPDs.In addition, Altecnic has just received a coveted award from NSF International, with its thermostatic mixing valves (TMVs) being the first to be accredited to the new TMV2 quality scheme.
