TFS bolsters merchant support with team expansion

20 September 2023

Wood-based panel products processor, Trade Fabrication Systems (TFS) has appointed Greg Beers as business development executive. This newly created role is the latest in a long line of investments TFS has made in developing its value-add solutions and services for merchants.

Following the launch of its ‘one-stop-shop’ machining services which include CNC routing, T&G, edge and banding, TFS offers merchants a complete offsite solution to finish any timber substrate.

Door machining and coating services have proven particularly popular, with national and independent merchants capitalising on the benefit of expanding product choice – without increasing stock inventory. Mr Beers has been brought on board to provide dedicated support to these customers, while helping new branches better understand the commercial advantages of offsite processing.

“We’ve made significant investment in our machining and finishing capabilities over the past few years,” said Howard Morris, managing director. “As merchants increasingly tap into the benefits of these services, we recognised the need to invest in specialist customer support – which is where Greg comes in. His in depth understanding of the merchant sector will enable us to keep innovating and help enhance our merchant offering even further.”

Mr Beer has a long track record of working in branch, sales account management and serving merchants as a supplier, giving him a unique appreciation of merchant needs. During his 17-year career his sector specific experience has been acquired through roles with leading brands that include B&Q, Jewson and SIG.
