Continuing with their aim of expanding what they offer, and providing the best possible experience for their joinery customers, Mighton have made two new appointments. Graham Avery has been appointed Technical Coatings Manager and Dale Cook Sales Manager.
The appointment of Graham is aimed at consolidating the reputation of the Dutch Drywood paints with whom Mighton have recently become partners. As he points out paint in the joinery sector is a technical purchase, usually after months of trials, and getting closer to customers of external and internal coatings, and offering superior technical support and after-sales service is his way of going about it. He is excited by the Dutch company’s long-standing heritage and reputation as leaders in the field and by the installation at Mighton of the latest computer controlled colour matching equipment.
Graham says “I have worked in the coatings industry for over 30 years, starting out as an Account Manager before progressing to National Accounts Manager and finally National Sales Manager. Along the way, I have worked with Sikkens, Teknos, Crown and Dulux accruing a wealth of technical knowledge and expertise. Whether its factory applied coatings into the Joinery Timber Windows & Doors Sector, coatings for the Conservatory Manufacturer or specialised finishes for the Timber Cladding industry. I am used to helping the customer select the right product and optimise their application methods, supporting them throughout the process and beyond. In my opinion, the products from Drywood coatings are technically excellent and distributorship through Mighton Products makes good sense as they are well respected within their industry for their quality and service. I look forward to working with both”.
Dale’s role is to promote the Mighton hardware range and to help develop new products for the company’s joinery customers. His past experience in the brushpile and weatherseal sectors will help enourmously.
Dale comments “I started my working life at Feneseal (Laird Security)back in 1992, working in the production department manufacturing TPE & PVC gaskets before moving into production management and then Plant Management for Linear (so I know my brushpile!). I started my own extrusion business in 2003 which I built and sold before joining Euroseal’s Technical department, helping to grow their product portfolio. I have also worked for Schlegel (known for the Aquamac product range amongst other thing). Whilst at Schlegel, I helped develop new seal and pile products for the joinery industry. I have chosen to join the team at Mighton because they have all the tools a salesman needs. Support, stock and competitive prices. Mighton have always worked with the customer to develop new products and are at the forefront of their industry. That’s where I want to be”
