Ecological Building Systems has increased its team with the appointment of Neil Turner as technical sales manager in a move that it says ensures it has the resources to drive and manage further growth.
A BBA-competent U-value assessor and who has been involved in developing CEN (Comité Européen de Normalisation) European standards, Mr Turner brings more than 14 years’ experience in the building products sector to Ecological Building Systems.
He joins the company from a manufacturer where he worked with architects, contractors and timber frame specialists on the specification of sustainable insulation products and has been involved in projects using Ecological Building Systems products for many years, giving him an excellent knowledge of the company’s portfolio.
Mr Turner will now use his experience, understanding of the sustainable construction market and industry contacts to drive uptake of Ecological Building Products’ wide ranging portfolio, which includes Pro Clima air and wind-tightness solutions, Gutex insulation, Calistherm climate board and Diasen thermal plasters. He will also work with stockists and distributors to continue to expand Ecological Building Systems’ supply network across the UK.
Penny Randell, UK director of Ecological Building Systems commented: “Attracting Neil to join us is a major coup for the company because he is so passionate about sustainable and Passivhaus construction, is very familiar with ‘diffusion open’ buildings and has significant experience across our product range.
“His wealth of technical expertise and experience of a diverse range of construction methodologies will make him a valuable resource for our customers and will help us to continue to grow the business and extend the reach of our products.”
