ANDY SWIFT NEW HEAD OF UK OPERATIONS
Andy Swift has been appointed as head of UK and Republic of Ireland operations for window and door sealants and air tightness specialist, ISO-Chemie.
Heading up a national team, Andy Swift, who brings more than 20 years’ experience in the window and conservatory manufacturing industries to the role, will continue to oversee strong growth and expansion.
Since joining ISO-Chemie in 2014 as national sales manager, he has been at the forefront of building the brand in the UK fenestration sector, raising awareness of thermal leakage around windows. In particular, he has been involved in promoting the energy efficiency and installation benefits of sealant tapes among sector decision makers and installers.
Targeting architects at the design stage and installers during the fitment of windows and doors, he will together with technical advisers Nick Thompson and Marc Barton, continue to focus on highlighting to the construction sector the benefits of using specialist technology to secure air-tight solutions.
The company’s range of advanced fire-rated structural products such as ISO-TOP WINFRAMER "TYPE 1" E30, which can protect the entire window area from fire for up to 30 minutes, will also be a key focus in the light of forthcoming changes to building regulations.
Andy Swift said: “The future looks bright despite some challenges and changes in the market. With the current energy saving movement raising voices in governments across the globe, I am relishing the chance to further use our products and knowledge to create more energy efficient buildings.”
ISO-Chemie is one of Europe’s main producers of impregnated foam sealants, specialising in the manufacture of foam products from polyethylene (EPE), polypropylene (EPP) and polyurethane (PUR) using the latest production techniques. With hundreds of pallets in UK stock for next day delivery, the company can service the whole industry.
