Manufacturer Goes from Strength to Strength

Burton-based roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles has kicked off 2020 by boosting its team as part of strategic succession planning to support business growth.

In the past six months, the company has welcomed eight new starters which includes four brand new roles (including two key senior appointments).

Employing 100 people at two sites on Nicolson Way and Wetmore Lane in Burton, Russell Roof Tiles manufactures nearly one million roofing products per week.

The manufacturer has also continued its dedication to nurturing graduate talent. Five of the employees are recent graduates and will be able to take advantage of a significant training programme.

The newly-filled roles will be crucial in supporting the business to meet the highest levels of customer service. An IT Manager has been appointed for the first time to further develop business growth, while a brand-new Management Accountant role has been created, enabling the Finance Director to focus on other pivotal areas of the business.

A new Business Support Administrator has also been vital in helping the Business Support Manager to alleviate vital areas of the business, including sustainable initiatives and computer system development. The Administrator is one of six new employees to join the administration, logistics and customer service team in Burton, as part of ongoing plans to maintain and increase the level of service Russell Roof Tiles is providing customers.

Andrew Hayward, Managing Director at Russell Roof Tiles said:

“Russell Roof Tiles has enjoyed a tremendous 12 months of success and 2020 is expected to be no different. As a result, we have recruited a number of talented individuals to ensure we are meeting the highest levels of customer service, while also planning for future growth.

“Each of our new starters will be able to take advantage of a dedicated development programme which will help them prosper within their career at Russell Roof Tiles. Some of our new recruits have already benefitted from hands-on training and courses, allowing them to play a fundamental role in supporting customer demand and driving the business forward to deliver excellent roofing solutions. I am delighted to kick-start the year with a strengthened talented team.”
