New sales director

Emplas has appointed Jody Vincent as sales director, recognising the significant contribution he has made to the fabricator’s growth.

Former national sales manager Jody joined Emplas in 2010 in a business development role, having previously put time in on the factory floor at trade fabricator Omega in Peterborough.

An established face within the Emplas team since, he has worked with its customers throughout the UK for the last decade, stepping in his new role to head up the Emplas sales team at the end of September.

“Things have changed so much in the last 10 years, and particularly in the last eight months, in Emplas and in fabrication and the window industry in general,” Jody said.

“As a business we’ve met those challenges and adapted to change head on but without losing sight of who we are as a business and the values on which we were founded by Kevin [Johnson, chairman], more than 40 years ago.

“The past few months have demonstrated the importance of that. Relationships with suppliers, as well as the critical partnerships we have with our customers, have been invaluable.”
