Superglass unveils new sales team

Published:  10 February, 2011

LONDON: Superglass has announced a major expansion to its sales force that will enable it to focus more on driving specifications from architects and specifiers while growing its share in the specialist insulation distributor market and maintaining its substantial presence in the builders’ merchant sector.


The enhanced sales force comprises some faces new to Superglass and some longer-standing Superglass colleagues who are energized by the new direction the Stirling-based mineral wool company is taking.

The newest recruits to Superglass are Alastair Heath, Peter Skidmore and Martin Wrigley as area sales managers (Midlands and North Wales, and southern England and South Wales) and northern demand generation manager respectively.

Mr Heath joined Superglass from Saint-Gobain Isover where he had been an area manager, merchant representative and company sales analyst, but he has a total of 10 years in the construction materials industry, including some with the Wolseley Group.

Mr Skidmore has worked in the construction materials industry for more than 30 years, including a builders’ merchant, an insulation manufacturer and an insulation distributor.

Mr Wrigley has more than 20 years experience of the construction materials industry, having worked in similar roles with British Gypsum Isover and more recently, an MDF and chipboard manufacturer.
