New product manager joins Arrone

Hoppe has appointed Jonathan Walker as Arrone product manager.

Jon has over 25 years’ experience in the door and window hardware industry, specialising in new product development and market research. He has previously worked for Paddock Fabrications and Yale, and joins Hoppe (UK) from Avantis International where he was group sales and marketing director.

Jon said: “In the short time I’ve been with Hoppe, I’ve seen the wealth of experience and the volume of knowledge that the technical teams have; they are a real authority on what they do. I’m looking forward to tapping into this, and talking to customers to find out exactly what they want and need from ironmongery products to ensure that we tick all right boxes.

“My aim is to give our customers confidence that they can choose any product from the Arrone range and that it will always be of the highest-quality and tested beyond industry standards.”
