Jablite's new sales manager

Published:  08 September, 2009

BELVEDERE: Mike Tattam has been appointed as UK sales manager for Jablite, the market-leading brand of expanded polystyrene (EPS) solutions for the construction industry.

Mr Tattam has worked in the construction sector for over 20 years and brings with him a wealth of experience.

His role at Jablite involves managing the external sales teams across the building and civil engineering sectors, as well as customer services.

“There are huge growth opportunities for Jablite as more customers realise the benefits of using EPS,” says Mr Tattam. “I’m looking forward to developing the business in all sectors of the market and helping strengthen Jablite as the leading brand of insulation in the UK.”

A key focus for Mr Tattam will be raising awareness of the performance and sustainability benefits of the Jablite range of EPS insulation in the trade and DIY sectors.

Mr Tattam explains: “Sustainability is an important consideration in new build and refurbishment and my role will be to communicate the environmental benefits of EPS to the market. When the Building Research Establishment (BRE) awarded EPS an A+ rating in its Green Guide to Specification, it confirmed what we always knew – that Jablite is a high performing insulation material with the very best sustainability credentials.”

He continues: “We are about to launch several exciting new Jablite products that will help us grow our market share even further. I’m delighted to join the company at such an exciting time and look forward to working with both existing and new customers.”

Mr Tattam’s remit will also include demonstrating Jablite’s innovative EPS solutions for civil engineering and foundation projects. Jablite manufactures a range of products specifically for this sector, taking advantage of the material’s inherent properties of strength, durability and its light weight nature. These properties provide numerous benefits to civil engineers and contractors alike.

Richard Lee, sales director at Jablite, explains: “Mike’s industry knowledge will be key in demonstrating the benefits EPS offers to the construction and specification markets. Jablite provides a compelling proposition for the insulation market and Mike’s role will be pivotal in building our relationships with new and existing customers.”
