Published:  21 June, 2016

Gripsure has appointed its first national accounts manager. Kevin Moloney, who brings with him 30 years’ experience in the timber industry will focus on growing the firm’s sales to merchants. 

Based in Cheshire, Mr Moloney will increase Gripsure’s sales through national and independent timber and builders' merchants across the UK.

Mr Moloney's background spans timber sales and experience as a branch manager with Travis Perkins and Build Center. Under his management, Build Center in Wrexham was one of the first branches to stock timber decking in the early 1990s.

Mr Moloney said: “I am proud to have been an early adopter of decking, having seen its potential to take off in the UK. I am now keen to be part of the latest development – anti-slip decking. Gripsure is a fast growing company with a very focused and upbeat team of people. Having worked on both sides of the industry – in trade sales and in retail – I have been very impressed by Gripsure’s commitment to its customers. My intention is to help the company grow its sales quickly and take up every opportunity.”
