Chemical water treatment and filter manufacturer Fernox has made two new appointments to its experienced Sales Team. Chris Broadbent has joined the business as Area Sales Manager for Yorkshire and the North East, and Jim Canning takes on the role of Area Sales Manager for the West Midlands.
Over a 20-year period Chris has fulfilled a variety of sales and managerial positions within the plumbing and heating sector including the role of Branch Manager at Plumbing Trade Supplies (PTS) in Leeds. In 2010, Chris left the merchant sector to work for Siemens Heating Controls, where he spent the next five years developing new business opportunities across all market disciplines as an Account Manager.
In his new role at Fernox, Chris will be tasked with expanding the business in Yorkshire and the North East, for facilitating specifications and sales, as well as building strong relationships with merchants, contractors, social housing providers and specifiers alike.
“Chemical water treatment and filtration devices have a key role to play in making our homes and buildings more energy efficient, as well as extending the lifespan of vital system components,” said Chris. “Fernox is an innovative company with a comprehensive and market leading portfolio, which makes my role here a very exciting prospect.”
Also new to the Fernox team is Jim Canning, Area Sales Manager for the West Midlands. Jim brings over 10 years industry experience in key account management, having held a variety of senior roles at Wolseley, Stelrad Radiators and Grundfos. Jim will be responsible for aiding technical specifications and developing existing client relations in the region.
“I’ve always been impressed with the performance and reliability of Fernox products,” explained Jim. “Already this year, the company has launched the ground-breaking Fernox Filter Fluid+ Protector – the first chemical water treatment of its kind. I am delighted to join such an innovating company and will work closely with customers to ensure they understand the full technical capabilities of our products.”
