Kommerling UK looks to the Middle East & Africa for future growth with appointment of Business Development Manager

Preston based Kommerling UK has announced the appointment of Marcus Hunter to the new role of Business Development Manager. With a strong presence already in the UK and wider European market for adhesive, bonding and sealant products, Kommerling is now keen to develop opportunities in the Middle East and Africa. Marcus brings with him extensive knowledge of the rubber and polyurethane industries, combined with experience of growing and managing export sales and distributor networks in these target regions.

“I am delighted to be able to join the Kommerling team here in Preston, where I gained much of my knowledge of this industry. Being able to combine this with my commercial experience and drive the company’s ambitious growth plans is really exciting,” said Marcus. The company’s specialist Kommerling CILBOND range is widely recognised as being a market leader for the bonding of rubber and polyurethane to metals and plastics and is used in the automotive, mining and oil, and gas industries.

Lee Foulkes, General Manager for Kommerling UK, added; “Marcus is a valuable addition to our senior team. We already have distributors across the globe but have yet to really penetrate the markets in the Middle East and Africa so this is a real opportunity for us.”

Prior to joining Kommerling, Marcus spent two years as Export Sales Manager at Electrolube, a manufacturer of electro-chemicals. Before that he spent over 20 years with CIL, working in variety of marketing, technical support and commercial roles that gave him a comprehensive understanding of both the markets and products.
