3A Composites reinforce market presence in the UK
3A Composites is reinforcing its market presence in the architectural market in the UK with two new sales managers. This expansion reflects the strong belief of 3A Composites in the growth of the architectural market in the UK.
While ALUCOBOND® has been the UK market leader in ACM (Aluminum Composite Material) for the past decades; the new sales force will enable the company to even better serve the market needs through an intensified regional presence.
Both new sales representatives have acquired a broad experience in their former professional activities in UK cladding and façade systems industry.
We are delighted to have these two experts on board and welcome them to the organization. Their expertise will enable them to provide professional advice to architects, designers, and our partners in the building market. The combination of our own sales force and the existing partnership with Richard Austin Alloys and Thyssen Krupp Materials UK will substantially enhance our market position” said Sabine Amrein, Director Marketing and Sales Architecture Europe.

ALUCOBOND® panels are also available in large sheet sizes and with a highly flame-resistant or non-combustible core.
