Mr Barrett entered the heating industry at age 19 and initially worked as a sales assistant before taking being made lightside manager of newly set up heating and plumbing departments at the then Graham Reeves branch in Newton Abbot, Devon.

After a decade, he moved on to Lochinvar, selling boilers and water heaters as area sales manager within the South and South West of England.

He said: “Throughout my career I have regularly come across Hamworthy boilers and water heaters and viewed them as quality products, manufactured by a professional quality company. 

“I have always enjoyed assisting engineers and designers to provide the correct technical solution by using products that deliver exactly what is needed to meet the specific needs of the project. Hamworthy’s comprehensive range of commercial heating products certainly allows me to continue to do this which is why I was delighted to join.”
