New MD at PTS

Published:  14 April, 2015

Plumbing Trade Supplies (PTS), part of the plumbing and heating division of the Travis Perkins Group, has introduced Matthew Mycock as its new managing director.

Based at the company’s head office in Crick, Mr Mycock is leading PTS’ extensive programme of investment as it accelerates its focus on large-contract customers. Having previously worked in the retail, FMCG and service industries, he has gained a vast experience of the underpinning principles that are also important to PTS – namely, high service levels through multiple sites, complex logistics, and diverse products for different sized customers.

“I’m delighted to be joining PTS at a time of investment and change,” said Mr Mycock. “Our main focus is to action a number of ambitious plans to create an industry-leading service for the UK’s large plumbing and heating contracts.

“My previous roles also had an emphasis on meeting high expectations by delivering a complex product on time and directly to the customer. Applying this to PTS will be key in realising our aim of providing a best-in-class offering for the unique requirements of large projects.”
