Specialist fabricator Mercury Glazing has announced a further new appointment to support its ambitious growth strategy. Kevin Edmond has joined the Gloucester-based fabricator in the position of Order Processor.
Steve Cross, Director at Mercury, said: “We are delighted to welcome Kevin to Mercury. Kevin’s appointment further strengthens our internal sales processing team. He is well respected in the industry, and his extensive knowledge and experience will be of benefit to our growing customer base.”
As Steve points out, Kevin is well-known in the industry having spent nine years working for the Customade Group and building a close relationship with many installers and builders throughout the UK.
In his role, Kevin will be responsible for managing the internal ordering function for the business, including order input, customer services, liaising with the shop floor and following the customer journey through to dispatch. Commenting on his new role, Kevin said: “Mercury are a close-knit business which is very refreshing. Everyone from the Directors, the internal sales teams, factory staff, dispatch teams and drivers all work together and are all focussed on the goal of building this business. I have joined Mercury at a very exciting time in the business’ history and I’m delighted to be part of the team.”
Kevin’s appointment is the third in as many months as Mercury look to gain further market share for their extensive range of quality PVC-U and aluminium products. Their growth strategy has seen the business double its turnover during 2020 and they have no intention of slowing down. Steve said: “While 2020 has not been without its challenges, we intended to push for growth as demand for our product range has increased year on year. We have already commissioned a new aluminium factory and made a considerable six-figure investment in additional automation machinery to allow us to scale up quickly. We have also attracted various high-profile appointments and our future is currently looking very bright. Kevin will be another great asset to the business and has already fitted in well with our 50-strong team.”
Mercury was founded in 2002 and manufactures a comprehensive range of high-quality window and doors products suitable for trade, retail, newbuild and commercial projects. Their specialist range includes PVC-U vertical sliders, a full range of aluminium products, casement windows, PVC-U flush sash windows and a full range of residential, bi-folding, and designer aluminium doors.
Kevin took up his position in September, 2020.
