Following the increasing success of the Reflok aluminium piping system, a new company, Reflok (Europe) Limited has been formed.
The new company will start trading in May this year and its launch is part of a global strategy to promote the Reflok brand.
Howard Noble has been appointed as managing director of Reflok (Europe) Ltd, which is wholly owned by Reflok North America. He said: “The combination of both businesses into one global brand results in a stronger brand offering and allows the UK operation to meet the ever increasing sales with global buying power”
Following the creation of a single worldwide Reflok business, John Shipman Contracting Ltd, whose business included the design and manufacture of copper Refnets and Reflok products will close.
Jon Shipman, co-founder and director of the parent company, said: “This will enable the management team to concentrate 100% on the Reflok business which is the future. Our copper business suffered as a direct result of both the amount of effort we have put into the development of the Reflok brand and a declining order book for traditional copper Refnets.”
Reflok (Europe) Limited will operate from South Cerney in Gloucestershire and can be contacted using the existing telephone numbers.
