Pegler Yorkshire has appointed two new market managers to its internal marketing team.

Janette Henwood and Amy Sedgwick have been appointed to manage, market and drive forward the Tectite and XPress brands, respectively.

“I have worked in the construction sector for many years and was aware of the formidable reputation that Pegler Yorkshire had for its products, service and innovation,” said Ms Henwood. “When the opportunity came to join them, I didn't hesitate and I am looking forward to positioning the Tectite brand as the number-one push-fit choice for installers and specifiers across the UK and Europe."

Meanwhile, Ms Sedgwick commenced employment with Pegler Yorkshire Group as a graduate trainee and has moved to her new role from an international commercial position. She said: "Securing the role of market manager for the XPress and Henco brands is a real pleasure and I am delighted to have been given this latest opportunity in my career with Pegler Yorkshire. I shall look forward to promoting the awareness of press-fit technology and driving market share in the global marketplace."

Phill Jackson, marketing and business development director, will head the team Ms Henwood and Ms Sedgwick have joined.

"A new year is always a particularly exciting time as we begin to implement our strategies for growth, innovation and success,” he concluded. “It is particularly pleasing to be able to welcome Amy and Janette and work with them to drive their brands forward. 2015 is certainly going to be an exciting time for Pegler Yorkshire and we are all thrilled to be part of it."
