Alex McLeod joins Crendon Timber Engineering with experience in the building products business, having been managing director of St Gobain Isover and CEO of Superglass.
Crendon recently opened its sixth and seventh roof truss manufacturing plants in Exeter and Bridgend as part of a nationwide expansion.
“The market for engineered timber roof trusses has grown by 12% in the past year,” Mr McLeod said. “Crendon’s sales have expanded well over and above market performance. With the agility to respond both locally and nationally to our housebuilding customers, we are looking to develop our reputation further as the developer’s first choice for timber engineered solutions.”
