Mitchell Gee, a director of one of the UK’s leading suppliers of external wall insulations and rendering solutions, has been appointed Chairman of the Insulated Render and Cladding Association (INCA).

As a director of SPSenvirowall for the past 14 years, Mitchell is a recognised industry leader and was elected as INCA Chairman by INCA members at the Annual General Meeting earlier this year.

Mr Gee said: “I am thrilled to be elected as Chairman by my peers at INCA. I look forward to working closely with the INCA Board to continue to represent the EWI industry and to further promote EWI to homeowners, social landlords, architects and main contractors.

“External wall insulation is on the edge of a revolution and has already become the ‘go to’ cladding for cost-effective decorative finishes – but for the retrofit market we have only just scratched the surface of the millions of solid wall properties that require insulation.

“We predict that the demand for our products and skills will be unprecedented but we need to be ready to deliver high quality systems and apply them to the highest standards, and delivering quality is at the heart of everything INCA does.

“We can completely transform the appearance of a house or whole housing estate and improve lives of the communities that live in them. I do not know of another home improvement product that can offer so much.”

INCA provides technical support and best practice advice to members, government and other key stakeholders and publishes comprehensive guidance to keep members up to date with changes in legislation, policy and working practises.

Katie Nurcombe, trade association director at INCA, said: “We welcome Mitchell’s appointment as INCA Chairman. He is a well-respected leader in our industry and we look forward to the future with Mitchell at the helm.”
