Fairview Architectural (Fairview), the leading provider of non-combustible premium cladding products in the US and Canada, announces today the appointment of Jim Pontefract to the Business Development team and Cooper Fossey to Customer Service, as the Company brings in additional resources to cope with growing demand for its range of metal façade cladding solutions.
Pontefract has extensive experience in business development within the construction industry and will be responsible for looking after customers in the North-East as well as growing Fairview’s current network of fabricators, installers, and trained Arrowhead Panel System users in this area. Cooper Fossey who interned with Fairview last Summer joins the team full-time as a member of the Customer Service team and responsible for ensuring that inbound inquiries are handled quickly and efficiently and in line with the Company’s customer-focused approach.
Because of the influence of the Building Code changes coming into force in New York later this year, Fairview has seen an increase in demand for its non-combustible façade cladding solutions:
- Vitraplate, a prefinished 3mm(1/8”) solid aluminum plate product that is available in a wide range of standard and custom colors and patterned finishes; and
- Vitrabond G2, an engineered plate panel that combines all the benefits of traditional aluminum composite material with a profiled aluminum structure core technology.
Commenting on the appointments, General Manager, Jerry Fossey said: “This is an exciting time for Fairview. We founded the Company in 2012 and since then have been steadily building a loyal base of fabricators and installers around the country and Canada. We look forward to helping customers servicing the New York market with their non-combustible cladding needs and other regions as the need for non-combustible cladding products spreads, while also supplying our popular Vitrabond ACM and Edgeline flashing materials”.
These internal appointments come just weeks after Fairview announced that it has engaged KLAD to be their manufacturer’s representative in Canada and A.L. Harding who will represent the products in West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. They join M3-Sixty which has been Fairview’s manufacturer’s representative in the Minneapolis regional and surrounding states since 2014.
