On the Crest of the wave

East Yorkshire-based Crest Building Products has appointed Rodney Hogg as its new national roofing product manager.

Rodney has over 16 years’ experience working in the roofing industry and recently left his position with a major producer to take up the new role with Crest. In recent years, as well as developing roofing tile ranges, he has focussed on the emerging renewable energy markets, especially with the creation of integrated photovoltaic solutions.

Speaking about his new role, Rodney said: “I had obviously become aware of the increasing presence of Crest in the roofing marketplace and could see the terrific potential their products have. The Nelskamp roof tiles, especially the concrete range, are probably the best I have come across and, after seeing their production facilities first-hand in Germany, it’s easy to see why. Both the concrete and clay ranges are designed and engineered superbly and the materials used ensure the product has maximum durability and longevity.”

Commenting on the appointment, Arnold van Huet, managing director of Crest, added: “We have seen significant sales growth in recent years with our excellent Nelskamp range and we needed a dedicated specialist to oversee further exciting developments within our roofing portfolio. Rodney brings a wealth of experience and will enhance our team with his expertise which will bring added benefits for our customers.”
