Climate Center expands estimating team

RW07-13.08.2014-17UK: Pipe Center and Climate Center have expanded their central estimating team to provide both a faster turnaround on project quotations and to support continued growth.

The new appointments treble the size of the Leamington-Spa-based team, which, as well as being responsible for responding to requests for detailed project quotes and technical information, will provide a single point of contact for customers on major contracts.

The four new staff will come under the guidance of technical estimating manager Wayne Calland-Hewitt and technical support manager Martyn Simpson, who together boast over 25 years experience.

“Together with high quality, reliable technical support, speed of response to project quotation requests is a key service issue in our industry,” said Pipe Center and Climate Center’s new trading director Chris Banner. “We are investing in a bigger team to ensure customers receive quick and accurate turnaround in response to enquiries, enabling them to move quickly and secure contracts.

“While the service will accelerate our response times nationally, we are particularly keen to support our expanding business in London and the South East, where we see major opportunities to develop our activities with both existing and new customers,” he added.

Alongside the expansion in the estimating team, the company has established a new London office to co-ordinate and support projects in the capital. Headed by Soulla Paphitis, the London project office has dedicated staff, with additional technical sales people in the field.
