DURA Products has appointed Andy Robinson to the newly created role of business development manager.

His key focus will be to promote the firm’s range of recycled plastic kerbs and drainage systems. The goal is to increasingly reach local authorities, merchants, designers and housebuilders amongst other sectors.

Andy Robinson has spent the last decade working for a variety of cement manufacturers, including Ecocem, a low-carbon cement producer based in Dublin, and concrete block manufacturer, Cheshire Concrete Products. He has also worked with Hanson Cement, part of the Heidelberg group, promoting its reduced carbon cement to merchants and groundwork contractors.

Steve Bennett, MD of Dura Products, said, “We are thrilled to have Andy joining our team. His wealth of experience across the manufacturing industry and knowledge of sustainable practices in the sector will help to up-level our offering and provide invaluable consultancy to our customers.

“The industry is currently striving to be as sustainable as possible and at Dura Products, we are the go-to experts for sustainable kerbs and drainage products. Andy will be instrumental in helping to drive brand awareness for the business and increase market share through a variety of channels.”

Andy Robinson added, “I’m excited to be joining such a forward-thinking, progressive business which is firmly focused on protecting our planet. I’m confident that my skills and experience in sustainable manufacturing will be a perfect match for the operations at Dura Products, and I’m looking forward to making a difference.”
