TKC boosts sales force in response to growing retailer demand



In a move that it says reflects continued demand for its Jigsaw brand of complete kitchens, TKC has made two new appointments, taking the brand’s national sales force to seven in response to fast-growing retailer demand.

Simon Jones, left, and Richard Glaysher, right, have been appointed as specialist regional sales managers for the Midlands and South East respectively, expanding UK coverage for the Jigsaw business, which has continued to see a steady increase in sales. 

Jones has a background in sales spanning 14 years having held roles in companies including JJO Plc and FW Hipkin. Glaysher has spent 21 years in the industry, including most recently over three years at Symphony. 

TKC launched its Jigsaw brand for complete kitchens in early 2018. The company says that the brand has quickly taken market share and has asserted itself as a key player in the complete kitchens market based on a huge in stock offer, shortened lead times and exacting quality.

Andy Marshall, sales director at TKC, said: “Since its launch the Jigsaw brand has gone from strength to strength and sales are forecasted to double this year. Retailers continue to be impressed by the quality of the product, its outstanding off the shelf availability and competitive pricing, coupled with attractive discount structure that generates increased margin opportunities for customers. Our lead times are some of the best in the industry, which allows our customers to sell and install more kitchens.

“Simon and Richard’s appointments will further strengthen the Jigsaw team in response to demand and growth of the brand as we continue to grow its presence in the market. They’ve both hit the ground running and I’m sure they’ll be great assets to our business.”
