With 45% of construction companies anticipating a rise in output during the year ahead, according to an IHS Markit survey, Klober’s timely appointment of Chris Nicholls as Commercial Director will help the leading roofing and ventilation component manufacturer to meet contractor demand for advice and project support in 2021 and beyond.
Pressure to build new homes at a higher volume and speed, alongside the growing home refurbishment market, including loft conversions, side and rear extensions, means that the appointment of Chris Nicholls comes at a time where roofing guidance and project support is
