New target sector

Euramax has appointed Kevan Flanagan as its new key account manager for the DIY and merchant sector.

Flanagan joins the team with an established history in construction and the Army Reserve to lead Euramax as it continues its expansion into these sectors.

Flanagan has nearly 20 years’ experience in the UK construction industry, working in sales, account management and marketing for manufacturing companies.

Barnsley-based Euramax manufactures and supplies PVCU windows, doors and composite doors for the modular, new-build, holiday home and home improvement markets. The company also supplies windows and doors into a number of DIY merchants in the UK and is looking to build upon this following Flanagan’s appointment.

Kevan Flanagan said: “The DIY market has grown rapidly in the last few years. With £55 billion predicted to be spent on DIY projects in the UK this year, it’s vital that we use this growth to build upon the foundation that Euramax already has.

“My years spent working with some of the UK’s largest merchants has positioned me with a great insight and set of strategic, analytical and interpersonal skills, which will be necessary to develop and secure more customers within the industry.”
