Kijlstra appoints new sales engineer for the south east.
Precast concrete drainage manufacturer Kijlstra has further expanded its sales team with the appointment of a sales engineer with 30 years’ experience in construction.
Barry Routledge joins the company, which has its headquarters and factory in Somerset, to look after customers, particularly water authorities, and projects in the south-east region.
A keen motorcyclist, Barry joins Kijlstra from an international textiles technology group where he spent the past seven years selling geotechnical products into projects and merchants throughout the UK.
He has also previously worked for some of the UK’s leading drainage and concrete companies after starting his career in the plant hire market where he worked his way up from fitter through depot manager to area manager.
Commenting on his new appointment, Barry said: “I am delighted to be joining Kijlstra and welcome the opportunity to bring my experience within the drainage and concrete industries to build on the benefits of using Kijlstra’s precast concrete systems.”
