Sika has appointed Simon Griffiths as Head of Sales – Modular Construction, a role that will see him build on the continued growth of the company in the modular construction sector in the UK.

Simon joined Sika in 2007, initially as a Technical Advisor for the Sika Sarnafil roofing brand, a market leader in roofing membranes. A move into sales management for the roofing business unit, which included brands such as Sika-Trocal and Sika Liquid Plastics, meant a wider exposure to Sika’s other market leading brands in a huge market sector within construction.

The new appointment will see him build on the already well-established Sika brand in the UK, with a clear focus around Sika’s offer to modular builders, and specifiers of modular build projects. Simon has many years of experience advising on suitable roofing systems within the modular market, coupled with experience of building envelope system selling. He has worked closely with main contractors and specifiers, and has a clear understanding of their needs, in order to deliver on expectations, and also has experience in delivering projects as part of Government Frameworks.

"“Sika has a wide portfolio of products ideal for the modular construction marketplace, but much more than this, we have a wealth of experience in many manufacturing applications, such as Automotive, Transportation, Marine, Appliances and Renewable Energy,” commented Simon. “We go beyond the supply of materials, and have the technical expertise to assist in the development, testing, and design, through to supporting implementation in production lines – often curating custom offerings. I’m here to help modular builders and specifiers, by being the go-to person at Sika for all their needs, and I am looking forward to ensuring our customers’ needs and expectations are properly met.”" Simon Griffiths - Head of Sales, Modular Construction
