Dura Products has announced it has appointed Andy Robinson as its business development manager, which is a newly-created role.
Robinson will focus on promoting Dura products’ range of recycled plastic kerbs and drainage systems, with the goal will be to increasingly reach local authorities, merchants, designers and housebuilders.
Andy Robinson, business development manager at Dura Products said: “I’m excited to be joining such a forward-thinking, progressive business which is firmly focused on protecting our planet. I’m confident that my skills and experience in sustainable manufacturing will be a perfect match for the operations at Dura Products, and I’m looking forward to making a difference.”
Prior to joining Dura Products, Robinson spent the last decade working for a variety of cement manufacturers, including Ecocem, a low-carbon cement producer based in Dublin, and concrete block manufacturer, Cheshire Concrete Products. Robinson has also worked with Hanson Cement, part of the Heidelberg group, promoting their reduced carbon cement to merchants and groundwork contractors.
Steve Bennett, managing director of Dura Products added: “We are thrilled to have Andy joining our team! His wealth of experience across the manufacturing industry and knowledge of sustainable practices in the sector will help to uplevel our offering and provide invaluable consultancy to our customers.
“The industry is currently striving to be as sustainable as possible and at Dura Products, we are the go-to experts for sustainable kerbs and drainage products. Andy will be instrumental in helping to drive brand awareness for the business and increase market share through a variety of channels.”
