Wrekin Products adds Scottish expertise

Published:  30 January, 2015

Richard Stewart is heading up the Scottish expansion for Wrekin Products in a newly created role of regional sales and operations manager.

“Wrekin Products has always supported builders’ merchants and contractors in Scotland through the Linlithgow distribution centre,” said Mr Stewart, “but with a growing product range it is important to offer expertise on the ground to advise and assist customers.”

Just a few weeks into the job it’s not surprising that Mr Stewart is already finding there’s a big demand for Wrekin Products extensive range of manhole covers and geosynthetics. With 14 years’ experience in civil engineering, Mr Stewart comes with an impressive level of knowledge and understanding of the market.

Mr Stewart said: “Linlithgow is ideally placed for servicing across Scotland. It is easily accessible from most of the country, and the Wrekin Products’ investment in holding large stocks of a wide product range means that we can offer a great service to builders’ merchants and their customers. Contractors can often place an order with their merchant and get it the same day using our drive-in-and-collect service.”
