Paul’s return

by Mark Rowe

The Expanded Metal Company has made a new appointment. Paul Green – who first worked for the Hartlepool-based firm as a stock control clerk 40 years ago – has returned, in a business development role, focusing on the company’s ExMesh range of fencing and security products. Paul will be responsible for sales of ExMesh on a national and international basis. Those products are developed and made at the company’s 25,000 sqm site in Hartlepool, for use in critical national infrastructure, defence, prisons, utilities, education, healthcare and government. High security products in the range – which are certified to Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175 – include ExMesh Securilath, a security lath designed for installation between walls, ceilings and roofs; ExMesh SR2 and SR3 fencing and gates, and ExMesh Alleygator, an access security gate product.

Paul has held positions across sales, marketing, business development and management for national and global firms including Intruder Detection Services Ltd; Dirickx UK Ltd; Gunnebo UK Ltd; Citadel Security Products Ltd; and Inova Gates Ltd. Paul also worked as a Durham police officer before entering the perimeter security industry.

Paul, pictured, said: “The Expanded Metal Company is an innovator in expanded metal mesh and I am excited to return and to be part of an ambitious team. The company is renowned and recognised across the world for developing and supplying high security solutions and I am looking forward to using my industry expertise and sales experience to further drive the company’s growth in this area.”

Philip Astley, managing director at The Expanded Metal Company added: “I am thrilled that Paul has returned to his roots at The Expanded Metal Company. Paul has a wealth of experience that spans the security sector and this will prove highly valuable as we continue to develop the ExMesh™ range and support contractors and end users in protecting critical infrastructure and at-risk sites.”
