Restructure completed at Capital Drywall

Published:  21 April, 2016

Capital Drywall, an independent drylining and insulation specialist based in London, has completed a major business restructure while also making significant investment in its truck fleet.

The new structure will enable the company to re-focus on its core specialism - major schemes and development projects in London and the Home Counties.

Paul Read has been appointed sales director for the business. Over the past six and a half years, he has been instrumental in driving growth and success for both Capital Drywall and IBC Buying Group, and has been responsible for laying a strong foundation for both businesses. Mr Read's efforts will now centre on driving existing and new revenues at Capital Drywall, together with ensuring that the business continues to deliver a wider portfolio of products and strong customer service.

Kevin Eastham has taken up the role of contract sales manager, focused on driving contractor revenues alongside Mr Read. Mr Eastham worked with contractors for a number of years at Siniat.

As senior internal sales, Sunil Patel will remain responsible for internal contractor sales, ensuring Capital Drywall successfully develops its customer focus in 2016.

Shanta Patel has also taken up a new role, becoming sales and admin executive for the company's merchant business. Shanta comes with a wealth of customer service and administration experience and is now tasked with streamlining the administration and transactional processes within Capital.

Capital has also taken delivery of three new vehicles, featuring a new Arctic, a new 26 Ton Moffatt and a new Tipper van. The new trucks mark a significant increase in efficiency and capacity reflecting the growth of market share already being achieved among contractors and developers in London. The vehicle program is part of a continual review of the business to ensure Capital Drywall are at the forefront of customer service and innovation excellence.

"2016 will be a big year for Capital, where we are tasked with ambitious growth," said Finbarr Doyle, managing director. “With Paul's sales leadership, and the newly restructured team, together with the fleet investment, Capital is now poised to gain significant market share in the contractor market."

Mr Read added: "This is a big step forward for the business. The new structure, focus and fleet investments are hugely exciting and enable Capital to better service our increasing share of the contractor market in London and the Home Counties. It further cements our mission to be the preferred choice."
