George brings 30 years’ of construction and flooring installation expertise to the Territory Manager role and will now work as part of an extensive commercial team based in Kemtile’s UK HQ in Warrington.
Kemtile, which celebrated 40 years trading history in 2019, was acquired by US-based RPM Performance Coatings Group in July 2018, joining the worldwide Stonhard division, a specialist epoxy resin flooring manufacturer with a 90-year pedigree of its own.
It represents a new era in the UK for both firms, combining in-depth expertise for specification, manufacture and installation all under one roof for the first time.
It’s full circle for George, who spent three years with Stonhard until 2013, where he added resin flooring to a vast knowledge of concrete floors and construction in general and established an enviable sales record.
Taking some time out to run his own business, developing opportunities and managing all aspects of flooring build and install across the UK, George has now returned to the company in an exciting new role in the newly-merged organisation.
He will be tasked with selling the ‘single source’ commercial flooring solution across Kemtile’s heartland food and drink marketplace and exploring opportunities in pharma, aerospace and engineering where the Stonhard UK brand is strong.
Current customers across both brands include Wright Foods, GKN Aerospace, Wrights Pies, Rhokett and KP Snacks.
He said: “Selling bespoke flooring solutions for both Kemtile and Stonhard is a really fantastic opportunity for me and a chance to complete unfinished business here! I think the sky’s the limit for these two brands. Both are second to none in experience, knowledge and commitment to delivering a high quality service. I can’t wait to get started.”
Jamie Cooke, Operations Director commented: “We are delighted to bring George back into the business. He has a first class understanding of how to source and create tailored flooring solutions for customers in a wide range of sectors and is already familiar with the Stonhard brand and our commitment to on time, on budget delivery. He is going to be a great asset to our Northern client base and will help us lead Kemtile into the next phase of growth as part of an exciting worldwide Group.”
