ACO strengthens its team in the North

Published:  08 September, 2009

SHEFFORD: Water management and drainage specialist, ACO Technologies, has announced the appointment of Ian White as its new field sales manager for the north-west.

Bringing a wealth of construction sales experience to the role, Mr White will be dedicated to visiting stockists and contractors, developing new contacts and generate long-term sales from those areas of the industry that offer significant growth potential.

“Specifiers are increasing looking to use products that that are tailored to specific applications. They provide the best value and performance and, with the development of new recycled materials, have minimal environmental impact,” says Mr White. “This move towards greater specialisation has sustained sales of ACO’s new generation of drainage and water management products and will, as the market recovers, see the fastest growth. My job will be to work closely with stockist and contractors to ensure they are in the best possible position to capitalise on these emerging opportunities.”

Mr White has over ten years’ sales experience in both the merchant and contracting sectors. He joins ACO from Wavin UK where, as divisional construction manager, he oversaw the negotiation and management of sales and supply contracts for all above ground contractors across the central and north-west regions.

Before embarking on his construction industry career, Mr White served as a Lance Corporal in the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment. During his five years with the Regiment he saw active duty in Bosnia and Northern Ireland.
