To help with its continued expansion, Liverpool-based Palace Chemicals is to ‘take to the road’ with the appointment of Gary Knowles in a new role as Technical Sales Manager.
Palace Chemicals has provided a high level of technical support to its customers throughout its 40-year history as a leading manufacturer of tile adhesives and building products in the UK – and as a man who brings with him vast knowledge of the industry, Knowles is a very natural fit.
Having previously started his own tiling business, 52-year-old Knowles from Ashford, Surrey, has more than 25 years of experience. He is an expert in Bisazza mosaic tiles, having been trained in Italy, and has experience as a Product Support Technician and Site Support Manager with responsibility for product support teams and specification writing with Building Adhesives Limited and Tremco Illbruck.
Due to the popularity of Palace’s Flooring Range and increased demand for both Palace and Laticrete Tiling Ranges, Knowles’s new role will be to add to the success of the current Technical Team by offering focused site support nationally, as well as engaging with contract and retail customers in and around the West London area.
“I am very excited to take up this new role with Palace Chemicals, as part of its ongoing 2020 growth strategy,” says Knowles. “ I’m really looking forward to hitting the road with my experience and helping our customer base.”
“Working with both the Palace and Laticrete brands, servicing existing and new customers, I will be working closely with fixers and tiling contractors to provide the site support, training and M40 specifications needed, as well as undertaking trade and training events for our distributors and partners.”
Charles Clapham, Palace Chemicals Managing Director, said: “We’re proud to welcome Gary on board. I’m sure our customers will appreciate his drive and professionalism as Palace continues to build on over 40 years of success.”
