ROCKWOOL reinforces commitment to safer cladding and façades with creation of new role

by Jennie Ward

Hedley Thompson has been appointed to the newly created role of Recladding and Façades Sector Manager, and says he is “looking forward to the challenge of working with housing associations, local authorities and housebuilders to help them address the many legacy issues they are facing.”

ROCKWOOL has announced the promotion of Hedley Thompson to a newly-created position within the company. 

The company, a leading manufacturer in sustainable, non-combustible stone wool insulation, says the role – Recladding and Façades Sector Manager – is the first step in the creation of a new team which will focus on working with housing associations, local authorities and housebuilders on the remedial action needed to address fire safety and other issues for the thousands of buildings in the UK which fall short of required standards.

Hedley, already a ROCKWOOL veteran of eight years, is moving to the new position from his previous role as Technical Specification – Façades. Prior to joining ROCKWOOL in 2014, Hedley held a variety of technical and operations roles within the construction sector.  

Hedley said: “In the first instance, I’m looking forward to the challenge of working with housing associations, local authorities and housebuilders to help them address the many legacy issues they are facing. Government and industry are both clearly calling for action, and ROCKWOOL can provide effective solutions with a range of non-combustible insulation and technical support.”

Mark Bungay, Commercial Director at ROCKWOOL, added: “There is an acute need for progress within the industry to focus on the many buildings within the UK that need remedial works, and to do so quickly. Hedley’s demonstrable experience – both at ROCKWOOL, and within the wider sector – sees him ideally placed to engage with authorities and businesses to help support them and drive change within the industry.”
