Insulation expert joins Encon

Published:  25 November, 2014

Insulation entrepreneur Mary Carthy has joined Encon Insulation.

Just two months after appointing Steve Moorhouse as the new Yorkshire and North West business development manager, the company has recruited Ms Carthy as industrial manager for the West Midlands, working out of Encon's Birmingham branch.

Ms Carthy brings a total of 27 years’ expertise in the insulation sector to her Encon role, starting with Kitsons Insulation as a stock controller before becoming office manager. She was then approached to start an independent business in Birmingham, MC Insulations, and built that up over the next 12 years to merge with four other independents to become GRM.

"I have joined Encon for what I hope will be the last journey in my insulation career,” she said. “I am sure with the experience I have gained, and the continuing loyalty of my customers, we can help to make Encon Birmingham an even more serious contender in the industrial marketplace."
