Gavin Watson joins ELCO

Published:  20 August, 2014

ELCO UK, formerly MHS Boilers, has appointed Gavin Watson as its new sales director. He will be responsible for the nationwide sales team and further development of the commercial range of heating, hot water and renewable products.

Having worked in the heating and plumbing sector for over 20 years, Mr Watson has extensive knowledge of the industry and a proven track record in field-based sales and specification. Most recently, he held the position of sales director at a commercial heating manufacturer, during which time the company achieved substantial growth and market penetration.

Mr Watson said: “The UK commercial heating market has gone through a bit of a rough ride in recent years, but the last six months have indicated a distinct upturn in fortunes, with construction reaching encouraging levels of output. The ELCO range of products is superb, offering not only high-quality one-off units, but entire systems – from boilers to hot water production, heat interface units or CHP.

“So, I’m really looking forward to utilising my years of experience and contacts throughout the industry to boost sales and ELCO’s brand recognition in the UK.”

Ian Bradley, managing director at ELCO UK, said: “Gavin is going to be a great asset to the company and I’m certain his vast experience within the industry, combined with a wealth of new ideas, will prove to be a huge advantage to our ambitious plans for the future.”
