Two new Vertik-Al recruits

Powder coating specialist Vertik-Al has appointed two new specialists to its business improvement and maintenance teams as part of its continuous investment and improvement strategy. Darryl Thompson has joined the planned and preventative maintenance team as electrical engineering manager, and Kevin Driscoll has been tasked with leading the company’s business improvement team, focussed on building stronger partner alliances.

With quality and efficiency central to the Vertik-Al proposition, Darryl Thompson is responsible for the electrical needs across the Birmingham site. Darryl brings over 30 years of mechanical and electrical engineering expertise and experience to the role.

Kevin Driscoll has 25 years’ experience in the aluminium fenestration industry. Customers will benefit from Kevin’s knowledge, industry insight and client-centric approach.

“We’re excited to bolster our team with a wide range of expertise,” said John Park-Davies, managing director of Vertik-Al. “Regular improvement plays a vital strategic role in developing the entire business and supporting our customer base.”

With Angus Mackie moving into the Allumette Group managing director role, Park-Davies stepped up to Vertik-Al MD in 2020, taking the business into a new era of leadership. Building on its 55 years lineage, Vertik-Al has built a reputation for delivering consistent high-quality finishes, fast, through a programme of strategic investment and technological advancement.

“We’re experiencing tremendous momentum as more and more businesses and specifiers turn to powder coating as their finish of choice, which is why we have focussed on strengthening our team with talented individuals who will support us in achieving excellence,” said Park-Davies.
