The Encon Group has expanded its portfolio with a new division, Encon Construction Products, which the company has established to service the growing UK infrastructure sector.
In launching the new division, the company is aiming to become the UK’s ‘distributor of choice’ for six key product categories, including masonry components, concrete and reinforcement, waterproofing, construction chemicals, geotechnical, and groundworking products.
In line with the rest of the company’s product portfolio, the division will offer tailored solutions to new and existing customers from market-leading suppliers such as Adomast, Ancon, Expamet, GCP, Maccaferri, Sika, Visqueen, and Weber.
Encon has appointed Vaughan Taylor to head up the new division as National Sales Director, while Ed Matthews takes on the role of Business Development Director both bringing a wealth of experience to the role. The pair will be supported by a dedicated team of specialists from across the Group, with the Construction Products offering services through the Dundee, Glasgow, Leeds, North West, Cardiff, East London, West London, Bristol, and Plymouth branches, giving customers access to a knowledgeable team of people able to supply anywhere in the UK.
Commenting on the launch, Vaughan said: “I am very happy to be taking the lead on the new Construction Products division, which allows the company to bring its customer-centric approach and exceptional levels of specialist expertise to infrastructure and major building projects.
“I believe that we are well-placed to grow this new division alongside the company’s existing Encon and Nevill Long brands, offering the same benefits: nationwide coverage with reliable delivery services, a huge choice of leading products – and above all, sound, reliable technical advice.”
