Actis strengthens technical team as customer base expands

Architectural designer Harsha Mistry has joined Actis as technical manager.

Insulation specialist Actis has appointed an architectural designer as technical manager to enable its wider technical and specification team to offer support to the business’ growing customer base across the UK.

Harsha Mistry steps into the newly created role to work alongside longstanding UK and Ireland technical director, architect Thomas Wiedmer.

She has previously been involved in a variety of hospitality, residential and commercial projects in the UK and India, working closely on-site with builders and craftsmen.

The appointment comes as Actis’ customer base expands thanks to the launch of its Eolis HC, a two-in-one reflective insulation with an integrated vapour barrier, earlier this year.

Mark Cooper, sales director of Actis UK and Ireland, said: “Harsha’s appointment means we can expand our technical resource as we enjoy continued growth. With the net zero target drawing ever closer, more and more specifiers are appreciating that our range of insulation solutions offer a quick, clean and easy way to create a thermally efficient building.

“Harsha and Thomas’ technical backgrounds mean they understand the very complex issues faced by architects and specifiers. They have both worked at the coalface in the construction industry, so speak the same language as those aiming to build the energy efficient homes of the future as well as improve the thermal performance of existing properties through retrofitting.”

Harsha added: “I’m passionate about helping the construction industry work towards net zero. It’s great to join a company which shares my goals and values and is playing such a major role in helping the profession achieve this.”
