Paul has many years’ experience of working in the home improvement and roofing sectors. He joined roofing in September 2000 as Area Sales Manager for Marley Waterproofing. In his new role he was responsible for roof surveys and generating flat roofing specifications for bituminous membranes and insulation. This later expanded to include specification of liquid applied waterproofing and single ply membrane, before his promotion to Key Account Management.
In 2006 Marley Waterproofing was acquired by the IKO Group. This led to Paul’s role developing into Commercial Management of the Roofing Distribution team, incorporating sales into national and independent roofing distributers. With the builders’ merchant sector progressing strongly in roofing, and following an internal change at Board level, Paul was offered the opportunity to head up the newly created Distribution Division, which includes sales to merchants, roofing distributers, and retail.
The brands in IKO Group have been global leaders in waterproofing and roofing products for over 100 years. The UK division was established 10 years ago after the successful acquisition and integration of the leading roofing and waterproofing brands, Ruberoid, Permanite, Marley Waterproofing, SpectraROOF and Hyload.
The company is growing in a number of very different markets including asphalt road surfacing; mastic asphalt paving; highways bridge expansion joints; car park systems; flood defence systems; PIR insulation; damp proofing and tanking membranes; single ply membranes; flashing, roof shingles and liquid protection – to name just a few.
IKO has three manufacturing plants in the UK, based in Wigan (Bituminous), Chesterfield (Polymeric Single Ply and Structural Waterproofing) and Grangemill (Hot Melt and Mastic Asphalt).
IKO has achieved the following standards for all three of its UK plants: ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and BES 6001 for responsible sourcing of construction products.
