Fibo UK, the precision engineered wall panel manufacturer, adds to its growing team with the appointment of Jenny Gibson as Regional Account Manager (North West). Gibson comes with many years’ industry and sales experience, previously working as National sales Manager for a plumbing supplies company.
Fibo is experiencing strong demand from local authorities, contractors and builders’ merchants for its unique bathroom and kitchen wall panels. MD Scott Beattie confirms that the company’s continuing success is driving the investment in team expansion, and in customer service and support. He comments: “Last year was phenomenal for our business, which included winning a deal with Fortis – a major builders’ merchant buying group. However, it’s equally important that we can deliver the support our customers expect, so having more feet on the ground is logical and timely.”
Gibson adds: “It’s exciting to join a company that’s growing rapidly, with an outstanding product that’s a pleasure to present and sell. I spent my first week at Fibo’s head office in Norway to learn about the products and see the manufacturing process first hand – a training session I’ll never forget!
“Fibo’s wall panels include a diverse range of laminate finishes.” continues Gibson. “So no matter what your taste is there is a product to suit, from contemporary to traditional. The tile effect finish is unique to the market and it really catches people’s attention. Add to that Fibo’s Aqualock system and a 15 year guarantee and you really do wonder ‘Why Tile when you can Fibo’!
“To top it up, Fibo gives me all the support I need to showcase its range to its full potential – and the marketing materials for customers are superb. I’m delighted to be part of a business that is definitely going places and look forward to developing great and longstanding relationships with customers.”
