Manufacturer of fittings and valves, Conex Bänninger, is pursuing further growth by appointing two highly experienced Regional Technical Sales Managers in the South East.

Together boasting over 50 years of experience, John Curley and Stephen Norgate are primarily looking to get Conex Bänninger products in the hands of merchants, consultants and specifiers, important areas of focus for the brand.

As Conex Bänninger make this push towards specification, supplying large commercial projects like hospitals, schools and office blocks, John and Stephen will bring a wealth of expertise and contacts to the company.

John said: “My new position with the IBP Group is a great fit, the quality of Conex Bänninger products is second to none and the wide range of products provides a great opportunity for me to build the brand across a variety of sectors.”

Stephen Norgate joins Conex Bänninger, having previously held similar positions working at other manufacturers or distributors.

Stephen said: “In my region within five years I would like Conex Bänninger to be the number one choice for merchants, contractors and specifiers alike. As part of our work towards achieving this goal we’re dealing closely with big national distributors, local independent merchants and specification firms. I’m very much looking forward to this, along with the challenges it will bring.”

Dan Wild, Business Unit Director UK & Ireland said: “It’s great to have John and Stephen on board, with such a wealth of experience and knowledge of the business sector, we can continue to achieve sustained growth.”
