Building Product Design appoints new managing director

  • 4 Oct 2023

Leading UK manufacturer Building Product Design Ltd has promoted Ben Gerry to the role of managing director following his successful tenure leading the company’s commercial operations.

With over 15 years manufacturing and construction industry experience, Ben joined Building Product Design in November 2020 as commercial director. He has gone on to play a key role in the development of the company’s subsidiary brands which include Glidevale Protect, Passivent and Kingfisher Louvres as well as Building Product Design’s bespoke manufacturing solutions.

In his new role of managing director, Ben will also draw upon his earlier experiences of working both in and outside of the construction industry, including his leadership of SMEs and service focused businesses, to further strengthen Building Product Design’s product portfolio and customer service proposition.

Building Product Design is one of the UK’s longstanding leading forces in the development of building ventilation solutions and specialist building products. The company’s commitment to building healthy solutions is supported by its ongoing investment in reducing the environmental impact of its products and manufacturing operations across its subsidiary brands.

Group Sustainability Board

Key to this has been the creation of a dedicated Group Sustainability Board which, in his new role as managing director, Ben will be instrumental in developing further.

Current initiatives include the creation of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for key products and a focus on achieving accreditation to the ISO 50001 energy management standard across both of Building Product Design’s UK based manufacturing facilities. 

Ben comments: “I am excited to lead Building Product Design and our fantastic brands forwards. After spending nearly three years as commercial director, I know that the passionate people here and the expertise they bring are a real asset to the company’s ongoing success and I am looking forward to continuing to work with our talented teams to build on this strong foundation.

“As well as supporting the subsidiary businesses under the Building Product Design brand, I will also be working closely with our parent company Wienerberger to bring a wider range of building materials solutions to the market.”
