Glazerite has appointed Andy Hill as their new Group Technical Manager. It follows the recent promotion of former incumbent, Mitch Gooch, to the newly created role of Operations Manager at Glazerite's Specials Division.
Andy, who joined the trade fabricator on 3rd January 2023, will oversee technical capability across the fabricator's five divisions, reporting into Managing Director - North West Division, Darren Rhodes.
He says: I've watched Glazerite's growth closely over recent years, so I was delighted when the opportunity to join them came up. I have a wealth of industry knowledge and experience in technical, production, and quality and assurance, and I'm looking forward to being able to play a role in further strengthening technical capability across the Group.
Meanwhile, Mitch has moved into his new role at the Wellingborough-based Specials Division, where he will lead operations and quality while maximising efficiences at the site. The unit is dedicated to the manufacture of the Residence Collection and VEKA Imagine Vertical Slider portfolio, all of which continue to grow in popularity with homeowners.
Glazerite Group MD, Robert Brearley says: These are two great appointments for our business. The products manufactured at our Specials Division are a key part of our growth strategy, and Mitch is an experienced leader who can help us grow capacity and improve processes at the site to better support our installers.
The technical support we offer our installer partners also remains a key part of our offering. Andy's broad experience in production, installation, quality and the technical aspects of uPVC products makes him a great appointment for the Group Technical Manager role at Glazerite.
