Norman Berrill is Sealco’s new business development manager.

Sealco adds expertise in England and Wales

Published:  05 January, 2016

Independent hardware distributor Sealco has added appointed Norman Berrill as business development manager.

Mr Berrill heads up technical sales in England and Wales as the business continues to grow south of the border. Over recent years, Sealco has seen an increase in the number of customers throughout the UK looking for the level of technical expertise offered by the Scottish-based company.

With more than 30 years’ experience in the window and door hardware industry, Sealco believes that Mr Berrill is a perfect addition to the team. Starting as a toolmaker, he moved into product development and technical sales, and reached board director level with a national hardware distributor before his move to Sealco. Mr Berrill also contributed to writing European and UK hardware standards for the industry.

Mr Berrill, said: “I like the way Sealco does business. I’m attracted to the independence of the company structure, which sets them apart from others. In my book customer service always comes first, and I believe Sealco is the ideal company to support joiners and fabricators who have to offer more specialist products than ever before. It’s not enough to just have an exemplary track record for delivering on time and in full, customers also need a distributor to support them with new products, and expert advice that offers quick, easy and cost effective solutions.

“Sealco has the infrastructure to be the biggest independent hardware distributor in the UK, and my role is to support customers switching over. I can’t wait to get started, especially at such an exciting time in the run-up to the FIT Show 2016, where Sealco will be exhibiting.”
