Park to manage Blaxill's Sudbury branch

Published:  11 January, 2012

SUDBURY: James Park has been appointed manager of the Sudbury branch of East Anglian building supplies company Kent Blaxill. Mr Park, 36, was previously paint counter supervisor at the Kent Blaxill Colchester headquarters, and before that was a manager with another paint merchant.

He said: "The Sudbury branch focuses predominantly on paint sales but also has a strong glass department and a growing landscaping department.

"We will be looking to develop heavyside sales from the branch, with the assistance of Andy McMahon who has recently taken on the building ledger for the area".

The five-person branch has been particularly strong in designer paints, which has been run by Dawn Harrington, who has recently been promoted to branch supervisor.
