Polypipe Building Services appoints new UK sales and marketing director

Polypipe Building Services has announced the appointment of their new UK sales and marketing director, Tom Murray.

Murray said: “I am well used to helping customers successfully work with changing environmental regulations and shifting project demands, not least from my time in the gas sector where the energy transition has created major change.

“What I learned from this is that people are taking a much broader view of the value products can offer them, with factors like full lifecycle embodied carbon being a key consideration in whether can item is going to perform as required.”

The appointment follows the recent product news at the company as they launch their products that make drainage and water supply installations more efficient and sustainable. This includes an update to its popular Terrain PVC pipe product to now be manufactured with up to 65% recycled materials.

“In turn this means factors such as Environmental Product Declarations have a crucial part to play in this and will soon become mandatory, and Polypipe Building Services is already on that journey and has completed most of these. These are essential for any business that wants a seat at the table in the future and who wants their product to be specified,” said Murray.

“I’ve worked in the building services industry for many years so I’m excited to join a business and the broader Genuit Group that is so focused and committed to sustainability from a product development, prefabricated offsite services and operational point of view.”
