Racking supplier Filplastic Ltd has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of Simon Cobb.
Cobb has many years’ experience in the builders’ merchant industry with Grafton Group and Travis Perkins, and joined the East Yorkshire company as national project manager this month.
Based in Milton Keynes, Cobb will oversee Filplastic’s larger national projects from proposal stage through to design, fit out and completion, ensuring jobs run smoothly and to time.
As an experienced designer, Cobb will also provide input on creating modern, functional layouts for builders’ merchants and associated sectors.
He said he was delighted to be joining Filplastic at this point in his career, after spending many years working in the corporate sector.
“A lot of my career has been spent at large companies, so it is fantastic to join a smaller business like Filplastic where you can really make a difference.
“Filplastic has got a fantastic reputation in the builders’ merchant sector for their design and fit out work and the vast range of racking and storage products they supply.
“My role will see us build on that. The builders’ merchant sector is modernising and looking at more efficient layouts for their yards, warehouses and trade counters to create an improved customer experience. That is where we come in, starting from the ground up we can help them achieve those aims.”
