The sales and operational activities of render and external wall insulation (EWI) systems manufacturer Knauf Marmorit (UK) GmbH in the United Kingdom and Ireland have been integrated into the business of its sister company Knauf UK.
The move has been instigated to give the established Marmorit brand increased resources to support its ambitious growth plans.
The business is now trading under the Knauf UK banner, with the Marmorit brand integrated into the company’s Business Development division alongside a number of complementary products, including Knauf façade systems.
The Marmorit order taking, logistics planning and credit control operations have moved from the company’s administration office in Avonmouth to Knauf UK’s headquarters in Sittingbourne, Kent. Marmorit brand products continue to be distributed from the company’s Avonmouth warehouse.
Commenting on the move, Knauf UK business development director Mark Meagrow said:
“This is an exciting development for the Knauf Marmorit brand. Our range of render systems has strong synergies with a number of the existing Knauf UK product lines and this strategic alliance will serve to provide new opportunities both for our company and our established customer base.”
“Not only will the additional resources available within Knauf UK enable us to provide an improved customer service but the facilities available within the new Sittingbourne training, visitor and administrative centre will enhance our ability to support our approved installers and end-users to a standard commensurate with our standing in the industry.”
