Schiedel starts 2019 Ontop

Schiedel Chimney Systems has had an exciting start to the New Year, entering into a dual brand strategy with gas flue experts, Ontop, and making key changes to its management team to accommodate the new approach.

Phil Lowe and David Wright.

Phil Lowe, who was responsible for customer service, training and OEM sales has been promoted to sales director, while David Wright is now product and export sales manager, moving from his role as residential sales and marketing manager.

In his new position as sales director, Mr Lowe will take the lead in the development of sales in both the residential and non-residential sectors, continuing to work with existing customers and exploring new markets driven by Schiedel and Ontop’s combined offering.

Mr Wright has worked for Schiedel for 35 years and will be using his considerable experience to help rationalise the new product range, as well as introducing innovations to the UK market. With five languages under his belt, he is the ideal candidate for dealing with export sales.

Mr Lowe said: “This is a very exciting time for me and the companies involved. The range of products offered by Schiedel and Ontop allow us to deliver to a greater cross-section of the building services engineering marketplace, pooling the wealth of experience that these two organisations bring to the table.

“One of my first tasks will involve restructuring and recruiting my department in readiness for a dual brand approach. A new Ontop external sales team, supported by a technical department, will be set up. Based in Schiedel’s UK headquarters, our warehouse will also take on the distribution of Ontop products.”

Mr Wright added: “As a long serving member of the Schiedel team I have seen the company grow and evolve over the last 35 years. This latest collaboration provides a great opportunity to move into new product ranges and applications, allowing both Schiedel and OnTop to develop innovative solutions. I am looking forward to helping both companies move forward with their ambitions, both in the UK and Europe.”
