Metal fabrications manufacturer Trimform appoints vastly experienced technical sales professional

Metal fabrications specialist Trimform has appointed vastly experienced senior technical sales professional Chris Haycock as area sales manager covering the central south-east of England and East Anglia.

Based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, Trimform manufactures a complete range of flashings, gutters and rainwater systems, in various materials and colours, for the construction industry nationwide. It also produces bespoke steel and aluminium fabrications and a range of profiled metal sheets, in an assortment of finishes, colours and profiles.

In his new role, Chris will perform tasks including identifying prospects and developing sales strategies before approaching potential customers, clinching sales and helping buyers and specifiers through the purchasing process. He will report to Trimform general manager Rob Morris.

Chris, who has been in technical sales throughout his 35-year career, has joined Trimform after a year with London-based Rox Interiors, provider of services to the construction industry ranging from fit-outs to high end residential works.

His earlier career included eight years as a managing director of a company in Bury St Edmunds and five as sales director with Croydon-based decorative structural architectural glass specialists Fusion Glass Designs.

Commenting on his new role, Chris said:

“I’m really excited about working for Trimform because of its significant growth potential as part of SIG plc, supplier of specialist materials to the construction and related sectors, which it joined earlier this year.

“Being part of this large group now enables the company to offer products such as insulated panels in a wide assortment of thicknesses, a complete variety of purlins, rails and channel sections, plus pressed shapes beyond industry standard lengths, of up to 10 metres. The relationship therefore enables Trimform to offer a much wider package of solutions to the construction sector and I’m really looking forward to taking this proposition to the marketplace.”

Welcoming Chris Haycock to the company, Joanne Grainger, divisional director, SIG Building Solutions, said he was a hugely experienced senior technical sales professional who had exactly the mix of background and ability the company had been seeking.

She added:

“Chris will help even more customers benefit from the value, quality, performance and service levels Trimform prides itself on delivering and we’re convinced he’ll prove a significant asset to the business.”

Trimform has the ability to service small orders, in addition to providing large quantities. It also retains its own fleet of vehicles, recognising the importance of delivery times and the ability to transport directly to construction sites.
