Acheson & Glover appoints new manager for Merchants
Published:  16 March, 2011

BIRMINGHAM: Phil Crichton joins Acheson & Glover (A&G) as specification and technical manager for mainland Britain.

A&G is a leading supplier of premium quality hard landscaping in Northern Ireland and is now expanding in Great Britain. The aim of Mr Crichton’s new role is to raise awareness of A&G’s brand and products among architects, specifiers and builders’ merchants, and generate specified sales for merchants.

A chartered landscape architect with more than 20 years experience in consultancy in the building market, Mr Crichton brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to his new role. His appointment is particularly important to reinforce A&G’s commitment to helping merchants sell more hard landscaping and he has already provided detailed designs for two merchants to build a permanent display area so that trade customers and end consumers can easily visualise the application of A&G’s products.

Mr Crichton is keen to get this message across: “Getting to know A&G’s products highlighted the unique variety of finishes and textures they have to offer merchants. But we know merchants always have a choice, so A&G also offers reliable and flexible service and help with selling. We only sell hard landscaping and Civils through merchants so every time our products are specified it means more trade for them.”
