KORAMIC APPOINTS ROOFING TILE SPECIALIST
Wienerberger is strengthening its management team with the appointment of Sarah Jackson as business development manager for its Koramic clay roof tiles.
With over nine years' experience in the clay manufacturing industry, including seven years as a product manager, Sarah will be responsible for developing the company's existing Koramic clay roofing products and identifying further opportunities in the UK market.
Speaking about her new role, Sarah said: "I am looking forward to the new challenge. Wienerberger has already established itself as the world's leading producer of Terca clay facing bricks. Although Koramic roof tiles have a strong market presence across Europe, there is a wealth of opportunity to increase our market share in the UK.
"By investigating different tile profiles and textures, we will enhance our existing product range to meet our customers' changing requirements in the future. Working closely with UK developers and specifiers, we will establish a variety of new designs, colours and shapes that can meet every building requirement.
"I'm really looking forward to working with a growing team and to strengthening the position of the Koramic brand in the UK."
With a 120-year pedigree, Koramic is the brand name for Wienerberger's range of clay roof tiles. Available through specialist distribution centres, roofing merchants and selected builders' merchants across the UK, all tiles in the range come with a 30-year guarantee as standard.
