New technical support appointments

Garnalex has appointed two area technical managers: Dave Brown and James Barker.

Working with the technical sales team, Dave and James will provide fabricators with specific technical assistance and advice on setting up as Sheerline fabricators.

Dave joins as southern technical manager, bringing extensive technical knowledge gained in various roles at Aluk and Schueco.

Northern technical manager James Barker’s previous work at Avantek gives him an in-depth understanding of tooling, machinery and setting up new fabricators.

Garnalex CEO Roger Hartshorn said: “We’ve designed many innovations in to our Sheerline systems, making them easier and faster to fabricate, and less wasteful of materials than other run-of-the-mill systems. So, we’ve invested in experienced hands-on technical managers to work closely with the technical sales team to provide market-leading technical support for our customers. Both Dave and James have a wealth of knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the team.

“While social distancing and safety measures are still in place, much of this training and support can be carried out remotely, at a time and place to suit the customer, thanks to our comprehensive suite of videos ( and technical guides. Nevertheless, the technical and sales teams are also available for site visits and our custom-built training centre is ready to welcome customers when circumstances allow.”
