Philip joined BTS in 2009 following 23 years with a leading supplier in the Cladding Fabrications sector with 12 years experience on the shop floor to become a qualified tradesman. For the remaining 11 years of his tenure he worked his way up to be Commercial Manager looking after 35 million pounds of Sales. In 2006 whilst at night school Philip graduated in a CMS course in management studies.
Philip’s experience and industry knowledge with the back up of a great team helped turn around and grow the fledgling BTS business into what it is now. Philip and his close team worked very long hours in the early days to help fund a revolution of investment that continues to this day. The recent strategy is to automate the production processes and invest heavily in design, software and a unique ERP system wrote by us for us. This strategy culminated in a £600,000 investment in new offices that showcased our Vantage Rainscreen systems that Philip closely managed. Phil’s mission is for BTS Facades & Fabrications to be one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of rainscreen systems and metal fabrications. Phil’s favourite part of the job is watching and nurturing staff to excel and come through the ranks. Phil encourages all the management to be leaders working by example to empower staff. Phil enjoys a pint of Guinness, football, skiing, travel, family life and ballroom dancing.
