Reliance - a growing force

Published:  30 July, 2013

Reliance Water Controls has been expanding its commercial force during recent months, with the addition of 12 new team members.

Reliance, a household name in the UK market for temperature and flow control, has strengthened its sales, R&D and management teams.

“To achieve our ambitious growth plans in the UK, we needed to strengthen several departments in our European headquarters in Evesham”, said Mike Saunders, European managing director. “Reliance is a very strong brand and is known for its innovative solutions in temperature and flow control, as well as being the market leader in pushfit technology under the ‘Sharkbite’ brand. With the UK launch in summer 2013 in mind, we have made further investments in research and development and in other support functions to maintain our competitive advantage.”

“Building an industry leading sales team was the mission”, added Koert Munnik, commercial director. “All our sales team members are extremely ambitious sales professionals with extensive knowledge of the marketplace who all want to be part of the exciting growth plans we have mapped out for Reliance”.
