Hager Announces Appointment of Specification Team
- Published: Wednesday, 05 August 2015 18:10
Leading UK electrical manufacturer, Hager has appointed nine seasoned specification professionals responsible for working with architects and consultants on major projects around the country.
This strategic move will enable Hager to support customers in providing a solution-based offering that is tailored to their requirements and backed up by the company’s wealth of technical expertise.
The Commercial Specification and Key Accounts team will be led by Commercial Project Sales Managers and long-standing employees Chris Castle for the South, and Richard Gowan for the North. Phil Lillico and Steve Mansell, who are also existing members of the team, will be joined by new starters Steve Rouse, Steve Thomas, Colin Hughes, Jason Pritchard and Lewis Gibbs. They bring many years of experience in similar roles covering a wide range of sectors such as energy management, education, healthcare, rail, residential, commercial and industrial.
The team will work closely with Hager’s extensive technical department, situated at the head office in Telford, to provide an expert consultative approach. It is here that Hager boasts an ASTA recognised laboratory and a dedicated team that are responsible for the proper conduct of verification testing.
Hager’s product range specific to this area includes pre-fabricated wiring systems, electrical distribution units and building automation systems.
Nick Taylor, Sales Director at Hager UK, said: “This new team will be working to make the lives of consultants and specifiers as easy as possible. By working with them at as early stage as possible in a project, we will be able to ensure that the products selected will provide the most effective solution. This will reduce the amount of potential amendments to the specification at a later stage in the project, thus potentially saving time and money as well as offering continuity and dedicated support to customers. It provides an opportunity to gain an understanding of what is required and enables us to prepare a suitable and appropriate solution for the benefit of the client.
“Since investing into the new specification team we have already found that many customers in this arena were unaware of the breadth of Hager’s product offering and have already seen an influx of customer drawings for the specification stage.”
