Matt Rhodes' promotion will see him work directly with some of the UK’s biggest housebuilders.
Expansion prompts Actis appointments
Published: 21 January, 2015
Actis insulation has created a new role for a national specification manager following its expansion into the volume housebuilding market.
Matt Rhodes, who was previously sales manager for the north west, will now work directly with some of the UK’s biggest housebuilders as they begin to specify the NHBC accepted Actis Hybrid range which recently achieved LABC Registered Details.
The promotion follows the company’s first ever contract with a major national housebuilder at the end of 2014.
“We were asked to supply Hybris and H Control Hybrid to insulate the roofs of 150 houses on a development in the north east,” explained Mr Rhodes. “The fact that the Hybrid range has been NHBC approved was obviously vital in enabling us to obtain the contract – and of course now we have LABC Registered Details we feel plenty more doors will be opened to us from among the big players in the housebuilding industry.”
In addition to Mr Rhodes’ promotion, Actis has also appointed a new north east sales manager. John Balance’s role will consist of working with leading merchants, insulation distributors, and builders and architects to continue Actis' significant growth in the region over the last 12 months.
