profile

Stacey Temprell is British Gypsum’s Marketing Director. As part of the Saint-Gobain group, Stacey has held a number of senior marketing positions throughout a career spanning almost twenty years. Her marketing passion is driven by two factors – a deep and thorough understanding of the technical, performance-based B2B specification process of designing and constructing buildings coupled with a relentless focus on delivering what customers are calling for.

In all her marketing roles for Saint-Gobain, Stacey has always been motivated by the huge opportunity her role presents to prioritise the development of new solutions that can positively impact people’s experiences within buildings. In her position today, Stacey empowers a team of marketing, industry training and technical support professionals to deliver innovative products, drylining systems and support services for specification, installer and distribution customers.

Stacey is based at British Gypsum’s East Leake facility. Married with twin 8-year-old boys, this year she’s taking part in British Gypsum’s annual Barrow-upon-Soar to Skegness 100-mile bike ride so is spending some of her spare time in preparation cycling through her home county of Lincolnshire.

British Gypsum Comment: Q4 2020

Stacey Temprell, Marketing Director British Gypsum is BMBI’s Expert for Drylining Systems.

2020 was a rollercoaster but with clear guidance from the government, we’ve been able to keep our mining and production facilities open since the end of April, carrying out rigorous reviews of health and safety procedures to evolve and ensure compliance with the latest COVID guidelines. We’ve adapted well to the new normal, proud to be playing our part in helping the economy to recover from the impact of the pandemic, and we ended the year with a strong performance.

A Brexit deal was finally signed, but there were no last-minute negotiations for us. We’d spent three years preparing so there is minimal disruption to the supply of raw materials and drylining system accessories. We also carry additional stocks of production equipment typically imported in the event of machinery malfunctioning. We’ve taken steps to ensure our business remains robust, focussing on three key areas: product availability, customs clearance and product legislative compliance.

To overcome customs delays, we have an automatic clearance system to ensure the movement of materials and other goods is as seamless as possible. All our materials and products are compliant with current EU regulation. As UK specific guidance develops, we will adhere to all UK legal requirements.

In response to the Hackitt review, the government announced a new national construction products regulator to ensure homes are built from safe materials. The Construction Products Association (CPA) launched an industry-wide consultation into its proposals for a new Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) to establish a benchmark for how product information is presented and marketed. The consultation is open from February 1st to 31st March. Click here to find out more.

We were part of the CPA’s Marketing Integrity Group (MIG) that helped to develop the proposed code and would urge all construction product manufacturers to review and respond to this consultation. Ensuring construction product information is clear, accurate, up-to-date, accessible and unambiguous is a fundamental step forward in ensuring the safety of buildings.

As the roll out of the COVID vaccination programme gathers pace, with construction workers set to receive the vaccine by late Spring, there is cause for optimism for 2021.
