Plasterboard producer Siniat, has appointed Neil Ash as its new managing director from 1 January 2014.
Currently sales & commercial director for the UK and Ireland, Ash takes over from Jean-Michel Desmoutier who moves into a new pan-European role within the Etex Group.

Commenting on his new role, Ash said, “It’s an exciting time for Siniat and I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to lead such a dynamic company. We’re ambitious for ourselves and our customers and have plans for major new investments – including at our Bristol plant – together with extensions to our product lines in new markets.
