Change at the helm

ODL Europe has announced a new managing director following the recent departure of Mark Towers who has left the business to pursue other business interests.

The new managing director, Nathan Barr, will be known to many fabricators and installers as the former head of sales at Veka.

Nathan, who holds a degree in engineering and holds membership of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply, started his career as an apprentice toolmaker at the age of 16, so has always had a keen eye for manufacturing and quality, which he has continued to develop within the roles over his 20+ year career in the industry.

“Seeing the extensive offering that ODL Europe has to offer, including its enclosed blinds product range and composite doors, I feel that now is the right time to blow our trumpet and make the industry at large more aware of our extensive product range,” Nathan said.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark Towers for his excellent contribution to ODL Europe over the years and how he has built the business up to its current successful position in the marketplace, which I feel has provided a very strong starting point for me to build upon.”
