Fabdec targets Scotland for growth with appointment of new sales agent

Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Fabdec is looking to Scotland for growth, following the appointment of Peter Ferguson as technical sales agent.

Peter has more than 30 years of experience within the heating and plumbing industry, and will be working across Scotland to develop the Fabdec brand with installers, distributors and merchants.

Fabdec is one of the UK’s leading heating and cooling manufacturers, providing water heating systems for commercial and domestic buildings. The company, which is based in Ellesmere, Shropshire, has identified Scotland as a key area for growth within its water heating divison.

Peter, from Stirlingshire, has worked across the UK in a variety of ownership and senior roles with companies including Infrarad and Trianco.

Peter said: “Fabdec is a strong brand but I believe there is real opportunity for growth in the Scottish heating and plumbing market, particularly for Fabdec’s wide range of unvented water cylinders. The products are first class and there is huge potential across residential, commercial and industrial sectors.”

One key product that Peter will be working with is the unique Excelsior i unvented water heating range, which Fabdec launched in 2015 and is patented with 3S Technology. The revolutionary 3S Technology is the first true self-sustaining cylinder, based on an internal expansion system that greatly reduces the need for maintenance and upkeep.

Peter said: “Switched on installers will be particularly interested in the Excelsior i due to the fact that it is a plug-and-play solution that requires little, if any, ongoing maintenance.”

Chris Powell, Fabdec managing director, said: “Peter has great expertise and a wealth of contacts in Scotland and we are excited to have him on board. We have seen increasing sales in our water heating division in England and Wales over the past 18 months, and we see Scotland as a natural next step for long-term growth.”
