Actis’ newly appointed sales manager Jerrell Paton has announced that offering training sessions to merchants and distributors across the East of England is a top priority of his.

Jerrell, with seven years’ experience in sales and customer service and previous work in the power industry, aims to strengthen existing relationships with merchants and distributors and forge new ones throughout the East of England.

Running training sessions and trade days for their sales teams and providing educational materials to highlight the benefits of the products to their customers will form a key part of his role.

He commented: “I enjoy building a rapport with people and I am looking forward to extending my reach to merchants who haven’t yet had the benefit of finding out how Actis’ products can help their customers.

“Colleagues in other parts of the UK tell me merchants who’ve taken part in our training sessions have found them very helpful.

“Perhaps the main thing which surprises merchants and distributors is the fact that as well as being thermally efficient – which should go without saying – the products are so quick, easy and clean to use. These seem to be the aspects which really catch their imagination and are big bonuses for their customers.

“Builders who haven’t had the advantage of knowing about the products may otherwise carry on using solid insulation with all the dust and aggravation that entails.”

Jerrell added that the wider Actis team have been very supportive and helpful since he joined the company.
