Mike Lucken has been appointed as regional technical sales manager for the south east Conex Bänninger. He has over 22 years’ experience in the ACR market, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business. Earlier he worked in various engineering and management roles for Wolseley UK, HRP and Kooltech.

Bill Barlow, Conex Bänninger’s business unit director, said: “We launched our award winning >B< MaxiPro press-fit solution to the market last year to further establish our presence in the ACR industry. The good news is that this innovative solution is going from strength to strength based on its ability to significantly reduce installation time, costs and health and safety risks on-site when compared to traditional brazing. With Mike on board in the south east, our aim is to penetrate the market further and increase brand exposure on our complete ACR range.”
