Leicester-based UFW has appointed building services specialist Tim Harvey. He joins as East Midlands sales manager as the company looks to expand across the region.
A qualified engineer with more than 40 years industry experience, Tim has worked for companies including Picaw Ltd in Milton Keynes, Envtec Services in Leicester and Courtaulds Engineering in Coventry.
“This is a great opportunity as UFW Ltd is a fast growing company with ambitions to match my own,” said Harvey.
“Large parts of the East Midlands region are off the gas network, which means property owners are reliant on oil – green energy systems such as heat pumps are therefore a great way to massively reduce fuel bills.
“Renewable energy is also still a mystery to many people, so my role is as much about education and training as it is in sales. I am also keen to speak with any heating or plumbing tradespeople who would like to find out the range of benefits of being an installer partner with UFW Ltd.”
UFW Ltd managing director Nigel Parkes added: “Tim has a wealth of experience in the building services and engineering sector and having worked in the region for many years has built up a strong list of contacts. We are delighted to have someone of his calibre leading our external sales operations in the East Midlands.”
