New name and new appointment for Pegler

Fergal Kirwan joins as Business Development Manager in Ireland while a new brand name is unveiled.

It’s all change at Pegler Yorkshire with a new name and a new appointment.

The leading UK manufacturer of pipes, valves and fitting is drawing on hundreds of years of expertise from within the UK and across the globe to be the UK’s only integrated piping systems provider to the plumbing and heating industry.

Pegler Yorkshire, part of the Aalberts Group, will be bringing together its technologies under the iconic brand name of Pegler.

And to support the company’s ongoing growth strategy, a new Business Development Manager has been appointed in Ireland.

Speaking about the new brand name, Phill Jackson, Marketing and Business Development Director Pegler, commented, “This is a truly exciting time for us. We are renowned for our expertise in valve and fitting technology for domestic, commercial and industrial applications and have now combined this knowledge with Dutch group member VSH to create a seamless integrated piping system solution for applications across the board.

“The Pegler brand is so iconic. In fact, it still remains 198 feet in the air displayed on the original, and now redundant, furnace chimney at our manufacturing plant in Doncaster. So we know that our customers will instantly recognise the quality, innovation and performance of their integrated piping system.”

Pegler has also welcomed Fergal Kirwan from Mountrath, Co. Laois, to the team as it continues to penetrate new markets with its innovative, solution-driven products that combine to deliver fully integrated piping systems.

“I am delighted to join a company that not only has a great history behind it but also a very exciting future,” said Fergal, who is the company’s new Business Development Manager. “I have seen some of the innovations that have been brought to the market and also how proactive the research and development aspect is. Pegler is a very proactive company and being part of such a strong brand whose ethics and industry approach I admire, is exciting.”

Fergal brings a wealth of both practical and sales experience to the role. Having gained his qualification as a plumber he worked his way through the supply chain gaining extensive knowledge of the industry from the viewpoints of installer, merchant and now supplier.

“Fergal’s experience and appreciation of the wider issues that affect the industry place him in a very strong position to support our existing customer base and engage with prospective clients too,” said George McGuire, Divisional Sales Manager, Pegler. “As Pegler continues to prosper, enhanced presence in the Republic of Ireland will ensure that our integrated heating and plumbing solutions help businesses in the country to appreciate how our products support installers, contractors and specifiers to build reliable and high performing systems.”
