Firestone RubberCover roofing products importer and distributor, Permaroof has appointed Terry O’Hare as regional sales manager, covering the south of England to help cement and further develop the firm’s presence in the region through strong relationships with both merchant stockists and installers.
Permaroof, which has its head office in Alfreton, Derbyshire, has grown rapidly since it started trading as a family business in 1999. Over the past five years, the firm has tripled its turnover organically and, at the start of this year, made its first acquisition, adding the UK’s leading skylight and rooflight supplier, The Skylight Company, to its ranks.
O Hare has 25 years’ experience in the industry, including 10 years at SIG Building Plastics/General All-Purpose Plastics (GAP) for 10 years. He says: “This is an exciting time to be joining Permaroof. The company has big plans for the future and I’m looking forward to being part of those ambitions.
Permaroof, which currently employs more than 32 people across the country, is also looking to fill an additional four sales roles for the south east, as well as internal sales positions, by the end of October.
