Grant UK welcomes new area sales manager for South East England.

A familiar face for many installers and engineers, Lewis has worked for Grant UK for over a decade in their technical department and in his new role, he will be providing sales and product support out in the field.  

Lewis is joining Grant UK’s external sales team, working alongside the eight other area sales managers as well as the regional sales managers, sales support engineers and renewables, spares and national sales managers.  

Covering the counties 

As the area sales manager for the South East of England, Lewis will be covering the counties of Hertfordshire, London, Surrey, Kent, West Sussex and East Sussex.  

In addition to providing sales support for installers and engineers in his area, Lewis will also be working closely with merchants and helping customers improve the efficiency and sustainability of home heating systems.  

Lewis first joined Grant UK in 2011, working in the quality department as a technical returns analyst. A few years later, he joined the pre-sales technical team and later was appointed a technical advisor, and in both these roles, Lewis provided in-depth product support for pre-installation enquiries and after-care for installed products.  

Larger renewable installation projects 

More recently, Lewis has been the project support manager looking after larger renewable installation projects, supporting customers with technical support for air source heat pumps and Grant’s other renewables ranges.  

During his eleven years working with Grant UK, Lewis has amassed extensive technical knowledge on all of Grant’s products, from their biofuel-compatible oil-fired boilers to their latest renewables offering.  

As the area sales manager for the South East of England, Lewis will be on the road visiting merchant branches, and installers and providing on-site support for all Grant products.  

Over the coming weeks and months, Lewis will be visiting his local G1 Installers as well as arranging breakfast mornings and trade events with merchants, delivering product training and helping customers develop their understanding of Grant’s sustainable heating solutions.  

Helping customers in a different capacity 

“I am very excited to start this new chapter with Grant UK, joining the Sales Team and supporting our customers in a different capacity,” comments Lewis.  

“Over the years, I have seen the renewables industry grow and followed Grant’s own offering of air source heat pumps, hybrid technologies and ancillary products significantly developing as well.  

“It is set to be an exciting time ahead for the heating sector and I am looking forward to working with installers, engineers, merchants and other customers, providing them with the tailored product support they need.”
