Strategic partnership continues to prosper with LG Hausys

James Latham’s strategic partnership with global manufacturing giant LG Hausys continues to go from strength to strength.

After being appointed as their only strategic partner in Europe in 2012, Latham’s has just signed a 5-year deal making it the exclusive distributor of HI-MACS® solid surface in the UK and Ireland.

At LG’s Annual Conference held in Malta earlier this month, which was attended by its network of European-wide distributors, James Latham received a prestigious Achievement Award for the second time, recognising its sales performance in 2012 and the way in which the UK distributor has adapted its business to encompass and embrace LG Hausys operational strategy.

In addition, as part of its commitment to LG Hausys, James Latham has bolstered its HI-MACS® team with the appointment of four new members. Dave Roberts who joined from LG Hausys and Steve Ball, who spent 11 years with McD Marketing (distributors for DuPont Corian) have both become HI-MACS® Specification Managers working in the UK and Ireland with Architects, Designers, OEM’s and commercial end-users to generate work for Latham’s Fabricators.

Plus, Fraser McLauchlan has been appointed as Product Manager for Ireland, where he will service existing customer accounts as well as developing new accounts both in the north and south of the country.

Finally, Kirsten Barman has joined as Sales and Marketing Assistant. Kirsten is responsible for sending out HI-MACS® sample and literature requests as well as leads, database management and some marketing activities.

The strategic partnership with HI-MACS® is being overseen by Latham’s Director, Andrew Wright; HI-MACS® National Product Manager, Steve Robinson and Group Product Manager, Jason Ream.
