Methven, the global designer and manufacturer of premium showers and tapware, has strengthened its sales and marketing function with the launch of its new brochure and the appointment of three area sales managers.
The new ‘One Book’ features showers, taps and accessories from both Methven and Deva — the first time that products from both brands have been published together.
Designed to give trade customers all the information they require on products from both brands, the 189 page brochure, which features more than 300 products, represents a significant investment for the business.
Following the launch earlier this year of Aurajet showering technology within the Aio range and a host of other new products, the Methven sales team is now primed with more sales tools than ever before to take to the UK market.
The sales team itself has recently seen three new appointments, increasing Methven’s support to customers across the UK. Aaron Hughes will oversee Methven’s sales operations in central and eastern regions; Rachael Gray will look after the South East; and Jordan McLeod will be taking care of Scotland.
Aaron joins the team from national retailer Sainsbury’s, while Rachael has more than 20 years’ experience in the manufacturing and construction industry in New Zealand and Australia. With McLeod coming to the company from McDonald Engineers, the new recruits bring with them decades of sales experience.
The team will be tasked with developing new sales routes for Methven in their specific regions, whilst further strengthening relationships with its existing customerbase.
Martin Walker, CEO at Methven UK, said: “The launch of ‘One Book’ is a big step forward for Methven. We want to make our customers’ lives as easy as possible, so putting all of our product information into one easy-to-navigate publication seemed the natural thing to do. What’s more, I think it clearly demonstrates our credentials in terms of showering design and technology and is a fantastic way of communicating what a wide range of quality products we offer.
“With the recent launch of the company’s Aurajet showering technology as well as a host of other new products, the new appointments join Methven at a very important and exciting time.”
