New Wade and Gatic MD to create centre of excellence for water management

  • 12 Nov 2018

Simon Hipgrave has joined Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AlumascWMS) as Managing Director of globally renowned drainage brands Wade and Gatic.

This comes as the business is improving its position to provide complete water management solutions for the industry; from rain to drain.

Simon’s main desire is to bring customers further into the inner workings of the company, in order to deliver the best value complete solutions driven by users – which all starts with the centre of excellence.

The physical Centre of Excellence will be at Wade’s HQ in Halstead, Essex.

Opening in 2019, the centre will provide a space for contractors, architects and specifiers to gather crucial insights and question experts on the full capabilities of the AlumascWMS product range.

Simon commented: “It’s not just a physical Centre of Excellence that we want to create, however.

“We’re looking to create extra value across all interactions with our customers.

“At Wade and Gatic we have a team that contains unapparelled knowledge and industry experience – it’s now time to bring our clients inside, and allow them to tap directly into that vault of information in order to enhance their own projects and understanding.

“We cannot wait to bring more of our existing and new customers into our R&D processes. That for us, is the next big step.

“For years, in many industries, siloed working has prevented solutions being shared across companies and into different markets, but not at AlumasWMS, not anymore.

“We will apply our full skillset to match any water management issue and I can’t wait to get started.”

Simon Hipgrave joins from Hӧrmann UK where he was MD of both the Garador and Hӧrmann UK brands.

With more than a quarter of century of industry experience, Simon has created an excellent understanding of manufacturing businesses and the UK merchant and distributor markets, which will be phenomenal assets to AlumascWMS.
