BeA makes key Scottish appointment in off-site sales team

BeA Fastening Systems, the manufacturer of manual, semi-automatic and fully automated fastening solutions for construction and industry, has strengthened its off-site construction sales team with a new and strategically important appointment.

Neil Hoskins has joined the business as a timber frame specialist for the firm, which meets the needs of customers using timber frame, light gauge steel frame and engineered wood. He will be responsible for BeA’s off-site sales activity in Scotland – helping the business to build on its success in offering high quality products backed by equally high levels of service and technical support.

A well-known figure throughout the timber frame industry, both in Scotland and across the wider UK, Neil Hoskins joins BeA having spent fifteen years at ITW Construction Products. He joined ITW in 2003 as a key account manager before progressing to national sales manager – a post he held for four years. During his career Neil has also worked in timber sales and in sales for one of Scotland’s best-known fixing and fastener distributors.

He said: “I’m delighted to be joining BeA and especially as I’ve been aware of the company’s growing success and offer for some time. The­­ business is already the preferred fastening partner for many of timber frame’s biggest and best-known names across mainland Europe and I’m looking forward to emulating that here in the UK, paying particular attention to my native Scotland.”

Paul Shepherd, national sales manager at BeA, added: “Neil has an enviable track record in the timber frame industry and levels of sector specific fastening expertise that are second to none. We are delighted to welcome him to the team and know he will prove a real asset. He will be instrumental in driving our success amongst a valued and important group of customers.”
