The Encon Group, an independent distributor of building solutions, appoints Iain Holmes as its new Regional Fire Protection Manager for the North and Midlands.

Iain will work closely with Encon’s Newcastle, Leeds, North West, Nottingham and Birmingham branches to support customers in the area of passive fire protection. These include specialist fire protection contractors, drylining contractors, builders’ merchants, housebuilders and main building contractors.

Iain joins with an abundance of industry experience, working in construction for over 30 years predominately in manufacturing and in areas such as thermal insulation and light gauge steel. He thrives in both technical and commercial aspects and will be putting his expertise into practice to support customer projects.

Iain comments: “I’m very pleased to start my new role with Encon in a vital area for our industry. It has never been more important for customers to receive the right support when it comes to fire protection, particularly in light of recent regulatory changes.

 “As an independent distributor, I’ve always perceived Encon as a personable business where customers are more than just a number. I’m looking forward to getting to know customers in the region and using my knowledge to provide the guidance they need.”

 Neville White, Business Development Director – Fire Protection adds: “It’s great to have Iain on board for our Northern and Midlands regions. His sales and industry experience will be a real asset as we continue to strengthen and grow our Fire Protection business across all target markets.”
