Hat-trick of new appointments for Peri to meet Scottish construction growth

PERI Ltd, supplier of falsework and scaffolding, has strengthened its northern sales team as activity and demand increases following growing industry confidence.

With infrastructure investment in Scotland remaining at an all-time high, according to the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), PERI Ltd has adapted to the needs of the industry by appointing three new sales engineers for its northern sales team. Expanding its reach to cover the North of England to the far north of Scotland, PERI’s team offers a wealth of knowledge and expertise, with the new appointments boasting design and engineering backgrounds.

Heading up the team is regional director, Paul Browne. Currently the national president of The Concrete Society, Browne is overseeing the new additions to the sales team and will be utilising their extensive experience to help PERI increase its presence on large-scale building projects. He explained how the sales team will be working and why there was a need to expand the team in the north.

“Over the past 12 months we have seen a rapid increase in ambitious and large-scale projects and have been involved with some of Scotland’s biggest infrastructure programmes such as the new £1.4 billion Queensferry Crossing.

“With this increase in demand, we needed to expand the team to accommodate our growing portfolio of projects. This has resulted in us appointing three new sales engineers from within the PERI family; Ronan Bailey, Paul McGlynn and Scott McIntyre. All three bring extensive experience to the new sales engineer role, with knowledge in design, technical solutions and engineering, which will enhance the customer experience.”

Ronan Bailey joins as senior sales engineer for the North of England & South of Scotland directly from PERI Canada. With his background in sales and design engineering in Ontario and previously as a Formwork Designer in Ireland, Bailey's experience is perfect for Scotland’s exciting construction future.

Paul McGlynn becomes sales engineer for the East of Scotland. He has worked as a designer for PERI for over ten years until his promotion to business development engineer last year. Since then McGlynn has built his understanding of customers’ needs in Scotland and is ideally suited to take this next step as a Sales Engineer.

Scott McIntyre moves from Technical to become Sales Engineer for the West of Scotland. He has worked with PERI for two years as a formwork and scaffolding designer, complementing his previous six years’ experience in the formwork and scaffolding sector.

McGlynn added: “As well as strengthening our sales team, PERI is also expanding its Glasgow depot in order to accommodate a larger stock holding. An additional 1.5 acres of land is being surfaced to increase the yard area by more than 50 per cent as part of a £400,000 investment, providing customers with more stock in a quicker timeframe. PERI is already renowned for its flexibility, and this investment will ensure even greater support for projects of all sizes.”
