With twenty six years experience as a specialist in flooring for the industry sector, Alan Thurston was the ideal candidate for Gerflor’s UK-wide Industry Specialist role.
Having worked for companies such as Remmers UK and Altro in technical sales positions focused on resin flooring products, Alan had became an independent flooring consultant working alongside R&D teams, architects, end clients and installers.
“As I had started out on my own, I wasn’t actively looking for a new job,” said Alan. “However, when I knew that the role was for Gerflor, it took on a whole new meaning. The appeal was to be working at the top end of the industry for a blue-chip company offering the best in resilient floorings. Almost any Gerflor product can be put into industry, whether it is a specialist flooring for a factory floor, a sports floor for a gym or a decorative vinyl system for offices. Gerflor is adept at looking at a market’s technical and legislative requirements and making a product that fits.”
In combining his expertise and in-depth market knowledge with the global vinyl flooring manufacturer’s portfolio of World-class flooring solutions, Alan will be responsible for national sales and business development in the UK’s industry sector, with emphasis on pharmaceutical and heavy industry. He will be assisting the community with its specification needs across wide ranging projects.
Gerflor specialises in product innovations for contract, sport, transport, residential and housing markets. Gerflor’s environmentally-sustainable floorings are manufactured at its ISO 14001 certified production sites.
