Ian Salvin has joined The Expanded Metal Company as Security Fencing Estimator. Ian, pictured, has joined the Hartlepool-based company in a new role which besides estimating, takes in sales and technical support.

The Company’s ExMesh range offers fencing and security products to protect property and infrastructure. Ian, from Hartlepool, was 13 years at Peart Fencing as Senior Estimator. He has also worked as a fencing installer.

ExMesh products are developed and made at the firm’s 25,000 sqm site. The Expanded Metal Company, which was founded by John French Golding, the inventor and patentee of expanded metal, in 1889, was the first UK fencing manufacturer to be awarded ‘Secured by Design’ status.

The ExMesh range includes LPS 1175 SR2 and SR3 rated fencing systems, anti-climb measures, cages, ExMesh Fastrack, a fence developed for the railways, ExMesh Electra, designed for the electric and telecoms industries, and ExMesh Securilath, a security lath designed for installation between walls, ceilings and roofs.

Ian Salvin said: “I’m proud to be joining the company as it has a long-standing heritage in Hartlepool and an international reputation for security product innovation. I’m looking forward to working with the highly experienced team here at The Expanded Metal Company and to be helping them to deliver consistently strong levels of customer service.”

Philip Astley, Managing Director, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Ian to the company. Our customers will greatly benefit from the comprehensive security industry insight, product knowledge and experience he brings to our ExMesh team. Ian’s new role has been designed to bolster existing capabilities and his first-hand knowledge of the challenges encountered by contractors and installers will be a key asset in our service delivery.”
