Trade expansion

Alumen has appointed David Allen as trade sales manager.

Following its recent expansion to a new 15,000ft2 facility in Kettering, Alumen has made the appointment to support its growth plans.

Alumen’s managing director Alan Robinson said: “Trade supply is an important market for us. As part of our commitment to our trade customers, we’ve brought in David as their key point of contact, managing existing customers and building new relationships, and making sure they’re all well looked after.

“David has more than 20 years of experience, both in the fenestration industry and with trade account management, so he’s the ideal appointment for us. Customers have always been central to what David does, and that fits perfectly with the way that we work at Alumen. I’m looking forward to David developing our relationship with our trade customers, and helping take the business forward.”

David said: “High-end aluminium is a real growth area, and by partnering with Alumen our customers can access high value, high profit projects. I’ve already seen that our extensive product suite, which includes products from Schueco, Cortizo and Smart, is second to none, and we’re introducing new developments all the time.”
