Leon Friend has been appointed Managing Director of the UK arm of Eduard Hueck GmbH & Co. KG.
In a new role at the company, Leon will focus on business expansion and the launch of new products to the UK market – as part of a wider initiative to establish a senior team to drive growth over the coming months.
He has been working in the industry since the early 2000s and has been employed at Hueck UK for more than six years, where he joined as Business Development Manager before rising through the ranks to become a Director.
Leon comments: “Hueck is a true innovator in aluminium systems and this is underpinned by a dedication to quality and exceeding customer expectations. Our aim is to identify new opportunities and to bring products to the UK that will not only satisfy these market conditions but meet future requirements for buildings.
“It’s an exciting time to step into the role; we have recently launched several new products to market that are game changer for the industry and (we are on track for another record year).”
Hueck is one of Europe’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of aluminium window, door and façade solutions, specialising in both standard systems as well as bespoke applications.
The company recently brought several new products brought to market include Lambda (SA) silent air, a new product to window market that can reduce noise pollution by up to 39dB, even when the window is open in the tilted position, and a new façade system, Trigon GSP.
Hueck has also added to its popular Volato and Lambda ranges with the Volato SLS 075 sliding door and Lambda WS 075 FC, an aluminium window system in a slender façade design.
