The three new roles have created the opportunity for further restructuring at a senior/middle management level with internal promotion opportunities as well as the creation of four new roles across the UK and Ireland.
The restructuring follows a positive year for AG, with an 18% increase in sales and an ever-growing demand from the UK and Republic of Ireland for the high quality commercial products manufactured at its six sites across Northern Ireland.
Stephen Acheson, CEO, commented: “There’s a real energy in the market at the moment that is driving interest and demand in our products, which tend to be used for housing, commercial and public realm projects across the UK and Ireland. We’re seeing increased sales from across the water as well as further South which has led us to realise the necessity for senior sales roles in each of the geographies we service to drive commercials on the ground and forge strong relationships as we spread our reach further than we ever have before.
“The new senior structure is arguably the most dynamic team we’ve had, with extensive years’ experience in the sector as well as a longstanding knowledge of the business – the highs and the lows. We’re in an ideal position to reap the rewards of a booming housing market, investments in urban infrastructure and commercial developments in key locations across the UK and Ireland.
“Against political stalemate here in NI and at a national level with Brexit, we’re just getting on with business as we know it and investing in our own production facilities and our staff to make sure we maintain our market leading edge – irrespective of the broader political uncertainty.”
