Ashton Announces New Sales Manager and Partnership
July 12, 2010

Ashton Industrial announced that Peter Hedges has joined the company as its new national sales manager. In his new role, Hedges will be responsible for Ashton's full range of insulating glass materials, including high performance molecular sieve and sealants, spacers and Georgian bars.

Hedges has 18 years experience in sales and marketing, stock merchanting, tempering, processing and IG manufacturing.

Also new for Ashton, the company announced it has formed a 'virtual partnership' business plan with NEDEX Group, a manufacturer of IG molecular sieves. According to the announcement, through this "partnership" arrangement, both companies will operate as one, with a single shared profit margin that benefits the end user massively over more usual supplier-agent setups.

"Prices are unbelievably competitive" says Steve Ashton, managing director. "This new ground-breaking business plan allows us to offer the keenest deals I have ever seen in my 30 years supplying IG materials."
