Sika UK has grown steadily over the past few years, despite operating in challenging market conditions and have appointed Simon Griffiths as Head of Sales – Modular Construction, a role that will see him build on the continued growth of the company in the modular construction sector in the UK.
The new appointment will see Simon build on the already well-established Sika brand in the UK, with a clear focus around Sika’s offer to modular builders, and specifiers of modular build projects. Simon has many years of experience advising on suitable roofing systems within the modular market, coupled with experience of building envelope system selling. He has worked closely with main contractors and specifiers, and has a clear understanding of their needs, in order to deliver on expectations, and also has experience in delivering projects as part of Government Frameworks.
Simon joined Sika in 2007, initially as a Technical Advisor for the Sika Sarnafil roofing brand, a market leader in roofing membranes. A move into sales management for the roofing business unit, which included brands such as Sika-Trocal and Sika Liquid Plastics, meant a wider exposure to Sika’s other market leading brands in a huge market sector within construction.
“Sika has a wide portfolio of products ideal for the modular construction marketplace, but much more than this, we have a wealth of experience in many manufacturing applications, such as Automotive, Transportation, Marine, Appliances and Renewable Energy,” says Simon. “We go beyond the supply of materials and have the technical expertise to assist in the development, testing, and design, through to supporting implementation in production lines – often curating custom offerings. I’m here to help modular builders and specifiers, by being the go-to person at Sika for all their needs, and I am looking forward to ensuring our customers’ needs and expectations are properly met.”
The past year has seen events that have re-shaped the world we live in. The world around us has seen generational shifts, with rapid transformations in IT and advances in technology. Modern methods of construction (MMC) continues to move towards the heart of our construction industry in the UK. We understand that, for the offsite constructor, finding ways to increase pre-manufactured value (PMV) for the client, but keeping the manufacturing process as efficient as possible, can be challenging. We believe that it is the responsibility of key suppliers to assist this process, in whichever way possible. At Sika, we have the technology to support all areas of manufacture.
