SCOTFRAME has appointed Andy Lewis to the newly created role of business development manager for central England.
The Inverurie-headquartered business said the move was made in response to growing demand for timber frame homes across the country.
Andy has worked in the timber frame sector for 15 years and will be tasked with supporting Scotframe’s private self-build customers, as well as SME housebuilders, to plan and manage the construction of their homes.
Based in Shropshire, Andy will help drive Scotframe’s plans to target a larger share of the English self-build housing market.
He said, “I’m delighted to be part of a successful company that has ambitious growth plans. Scotframe has an excellent reputation, with a wide product offering to the market. I look forward to supporting customers across central England and Wales, including east and west Midlands and east Anglia. I am passionate about the use of timber frame in construction so it’s heartening to see more builders and self-builders using this sustainable method of construction.”
Malcolm Thomson, sales director at Scotframe added, “We’re pleased to welcome Andy to Scotframe. His experience in the timber frame sector means he will be a valuable addition to our team. Currently Scotland leads the way in timber frame construction, with 83% of new build homes in Scotland using timber frame, compared to just 23% in England. However, the market share for timber construction in England is steadily rising and Andy will play a vital role in driving our growth plans and developing Scotframe’s offering in England’s heartland.”
