Grant UK introduces Kevin Ellis to the Sales Team

Grant UK is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Ellis who joins the Company as Divisional Sales Manager, covering the South, the Midlands and Wales.

Kevin Ellis, Grant UK’s new Divisional Sales Manager

This summer has seen Grant UK welcome a new member to their Sales Team, further increasing the level of coverage that the Sales Managers can offer throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Kevin Ellis has joined Grant UK and, as Divisional Sales Manager, will be supporting the Sales Team throughout the South from Cornwall through to Kent, as well as in the Midlands and Wales.

Kevin started his career in the heating industry as an engineer, fitting Grant oil boilers for the Ministry of Defense. During this time, Kevin also gained experience with renewable technologies working with biomass, air source heat pumps, as well as solar thermal. From here, Kevin became a merchant branch manager, predominantly focusing on the renewable sector and assisting with renewable projects from design through to product knowledge. Most recently, Kevin has been working for a manufacturer specialising in heat pumps, further developing his breadth of experience in the heating sector.

Kevin’s career in the heating and plumbing industry spans over seventeen years, during which he has worked extensively with developers, consultants, installers, and companies in both the domestic and commercial sectors. With Grant UK, Kevin will be sharing his in-depth knowledge of both renewables and oil boilers with engineers, merchants and others, specifically working with the Grant Aerona³ inverter driven air source heat pump range.

Kevin will be joining Stewart Ratcliff, Alan Brooke, Gareth Farr and John Morris on the road, visiting merchants and installers and assisting them with their off-gas heating needs. Kevin writes, “I am looking forward to bringing my extensive renewable background and knowledge to Grant UK. Having been an installer and worked in a merchant, I have experience on both sides of the counter which has enabled me to build strong relationships in the heating industry.

“I have joined Grant UK at a very exciting time following the launch of the Grant VortexAir oil boiler/ air source heat pump hybrid, technology which combines the best of both worlds. Furthermore, this September sees the Vortex oil boiler range expand with the launch of six new Boiler House models so there is lots to look forward to with Grant in both the oil and renewable arenas.”
