Boost for Howarth’s contract sales

Published:  20 May, 2014

Howarth Timber and Building Supplies has welcomed Matt Lowes to the team to drive its new contract sales function, as the firm continues to develop services for its ever-growing customer base.

Mr Lowes, who brings with him 15 years’ experience in the builders’ merchants industry, will work across Howarth’s 28 branches as a point of contact for bulk sales enquiries, targeting regional and national contractors and housebuilders.

He will assist in the development of Howarth’s brand new contract sales function, which will include reacting to customer enquiries, supporting communications between suppliers and contractors and scheduling orders to ensure timely delivery.

Mr Lowes said: “This brand new contract sales service we’re offering to our current and prospective customers showcases Howarth’s drive and ability to expand, innovate and to listen to our customers’ needs.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Howarth, which has a rich heritage stretching back 175 years, and to maintaining the firm’s growth and development across the country.”
