Hoppe (UK) has appointed Darren Shufflebotham as its business development manager for the north of England.

Darren has more than 35 years’ experience working within construction, including 13 years within the door and window industry. He has previously worked for Mila Hardware, and joins Hoppe (UK) from Winlock Security where he was an area sales manager for the north.

Darren said: “Throughout my architectural ironmongery career I’ve worked directly with fabricators, so I’m familiar with the barriers they face, the complex issues they need to navigate, and the types of products needed to address these areas.

“I’ve known about the Hoppe brand ever since I joined the industry, and I’m looking forward to being part of such a well-respected name and helping to introduce more fabricators to its high-quality products that will help to make their processes much more efficient.”
