BeA, the specialist manufacturer of fastening tools and consumables for the construction industry, has said farewell to a longstanding member of its team.
Chris Ibbotson retired from the business at the end of March after 15 years loyal service.
During his time with BeA, he worked as a member of the company’s nationwide, field-based sales force as a technical sales representative. Responsible for a territory which covered West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Lancashire, he became a well-known figure across a diverse customer base that includes builder’s merchants, volume housebuilders and large construction businesses.
Chris Ibbotson said: “I’m sad to be leaving BeA but at the same time I’m obviously looking forward to my retirement. BeA has been a good company to work for especially given its global and highly respected nature. I’ve also been fortunate enough to enjoy a role where every day has been different and where you’re always facing new challenges and learning something new. I’ll miss the people the most. I’ve had some great customers and colleagues.”
BeA MD John Mercer added: “Chris has been a valued member of the BeA team for a decade and a half. During that time, he’s made a genuine contribution to our on-going success and growth. He’ll be sorely missed and we wish him all the best for the future.”
BeA’s extensive range of high performance products includes pneumatic, electric and gas powered hand tools and a market leading array of nails, staples, screws and other fasteners.
