Peter Wells joins Kemtile as new Estimator/Surveyor
Peter Wells has joined leading hygienic flooring contractors Kemtile as estimator and surveyor, based at the company's head office in Warrington.
He brings 15 years' experience of the tiling sector to the role and takes the estimating team at the food and drink market flooring specialists to three and the overall head count at the firm to almost 50.
The hire reflects Kemtile's approach to recruitment which seeks to add experienced professionals in all aspects of flooring contracting as permanent employees.
Peter will be involved in pricing enquiries and any surveying aspects of jobs.
Peter was previously with the Tiling Company (Northern) Limited, working in various estimating and buying roles.
He says the position at Kemtile appealed because it was clear clients, trade bodies and major construction players held the company in high regard. "Kemtile has built a great reputation, especially in the food and drink sector —for high standards of delivery on projects and excellent management from start to finish and I wanted to be a part of it.
"There is a genuine enthusiasm for the work they carry out too, which comes from the top, and they have a proactive approach to problem solving on-site which sets them apart," he said.
Stephen Westley, Managing Director of Kemtile, said Peter brought an excellent understanding of the sector to the firm. "He is a great hire for us, as he complements existing staff and can bring skills and experience to the crucially important estimating stage in a job."
On adding to an already impressive workforce Stephen again: "It's all about teamwork with us, which enables us to react quickly to our customer's needs. When we get the chance to strengthen with someone's of Peter's experience we will do it."
Peter moved from the North East to take up the position so when not working he and his partner Lyndsay like to spend time exploring the North West and their new surroundings. As a huge Newcastle United fan he also tries to get to as many games as possible and is keen to get back into amateur football coaching once settled.
"I have been made very welcome," he said.
