The Encon Group, an independent distributor of building solutions, has strengthened its passive fire protection team with the appointment of Chelsea Campbell as new Regional Fire Protection Manager for London and the South East.

Chelsea joins with over 10 years’ experience in the construction industry, having previously worked with major brands in account management. She also brings considerable experience in fire protection, working closely with customers, installers and various other stakeholders to develop the primacy of fire protection within construction.

Chelsea plans to use her knowledge and experience to support Encon’s branches and specialist fire protection teams in the region, helping to strengthen awareness and competence in an important area for our industry.

Chelsea comments: “I want to create significant impact and drive culture change within the market, putting fire protection top of mind. It’s important that customers have the knowledge and courage to ask the right questions around fire protection and building industry professionals feel like they can answer these important questions, or at least know who to call to find out. With Encon’s investment in fire protection specialists, there is a process in place.”

Neville White, Business Development Director – Fire Protection adds: “I am really pleased that Chelsea has joined Encon as our new Regional Fire Protection Manager. She brings a wealth of expertise and continues to develop our many aspects of fire protection within buildings. Her skillset in system management will also be a big advantage to us and help grow our fire protection business.”

Encon stocks an extensive choice of passive fire protection products and systems from trusted brands. Its national branch network supports customers across the UK with the solutions and technical support they need for their next project. Earlier this year, the company’s Fareham branch was the latest to become a Fire Protection Centre, adding to its growing network of specialist fire protection branches.
