Baxi has appointed Tony Falconar to the role of National Sales Manager to spearhead the growth of its Baxi Packaged Solutions business and ensure a compelling customer proposition for contractors, specifiers and end-users.
The business, previously known as Packaged Plant Solutions, is a specialist in designing and building prefabricated modular heating systems, working with customers from concept to completion. From its base in Preston, Baxi Packaged Solutions manufactures a full range of prefabricated and pre-assembled applications, from large containerised plant rooms to single boiler systems to utility cupboards, for use in everything from schools to multi-occupancy developments.
Tony Falconar joins the business at a time when there is renewed interest in offsite solutions from customers.
He said: "Organisations are looking to decarbonise and will find a prefabricated solution attractive because of its lower environmental impact and the fact it can easily be slotted in to replace their existing heating system".
"Contractors also like offsite solutions because they can focus on their development knowing that the heating solution is being manufactured elsewhere and delivered to them as a plug-and-play solution".
Tony comes to Baxi Packaged Solutions after spending much of his career in the packaged heating solutions market as a design and sales engineer and he will be developing offsite solutions for a range of private and public sector customers.
He will be working closely with the wider Baxi Commercial Solutions' sales and specifications team as this important solution is taken to more customers alongside Baxi's other low-carbon solutions including its commercial heat pump.
Baxi acquired Packaged Plant Solutions in 2017 and the brand is transitioning to being called Baxi Packaged Solutions this year.
