New addition to ForgeFix team

Published:  05 February, 2013

ForgeFix has made a new addition to its sales team. Dean Topping joins the distributor of fixings, fastenings and associated products with immediate effect as area sales manager for the South.

Mr Topping brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience of the industry, having previously worked for manufacturer of abrasive products, Dronco, as well as two other well-known fixings and fastening companies, APT and Unifix. This strong background in the trade sector will prove invaluable in his new role and will enable him to add significant value and insight to ForgeFix’s growing customer base.

Speaking of Mr Topping's appointment, Mike Smith, sales and marketing director at ForgeFix, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Dean to ForgeFix. His background, his understanding of the fixings and fastenings sector and his evident enthusiasm for the role made him the perfect choice for the position. We’re confident he will prove a valued asset to the team.”

Mr Topping himself added: “I’m always keen to take on a new challenge and I’m really looking forward to building on ForgeFix’s presence in the South – which is an area I feel has real potential for growth. I was also attracted to ForgeFix as a business because of its great support network and its genuine commitment to innovation. With the added backing of Toolbank, I fully believe that the business will continue to go from strength to strength.”
