Polyseam recruits new product certification manger

With the 1 July deadline for mandatory CE marking of sealants approaching, the company hopes the new appointment will help Polyseam to lead the way with its comprehensive testing and certification programme.

Prior to joining the manufacturer, Heffernan spent eight years as a senior technical officer at BM Trada (formerly Chiltern International Fire).

Dave Oram, from Polyseam, said: “Neil brings with him extensive knowledge and understanding of the certification and testing procedures. We have an ever expanding range of products and we want our customers to be confident that they are buying the best product for the job and one that meets all the necessary criteria.”

One of Heffernan’s first projects will be to obtain full CE certification for the recently launched Graft™ range.

Commenting on his new role, Heffernan said: “Joining Polyseam gives me a real opportunity to apply my knowledge of testing and certification in a wider commercial market. There is a real drive for improving standards of safety and security across the industry and I’m delighted to be able to help Polyseam take the initiative and position itself as a dynamic organisation that recognises the importance of European legislation, which includes CE marking.”

In addition to working with the company’s manufacturing team in Huddersfield, Heffernan will also spend some of his time at the company’s purpose built fire test facility in Norway.
