New Chief Executive at Pyroguard

Neil Tilsley Appointed


Fire resistant glazing manufacturer Pyroguard announces exciting changes at the company with the recent appointment of Neil Tilsley as Chief Executive, who joined the company on 1st January 2016, and a major investment programme into its manufacturing facilities in the UK and France.

Neil brings a wealth of experience in the manufacturing and construction engineering sectors and has previously held commercial and general management roles with organisations including Abloy UK, NG Bailey and most recently Polypipe Ventilation, where he oversaw a period of significant growth including three strategic acquisitions.

Neil’s appointment coincides with the completion of a >£1m investment programme into its manufacturing facilities in Haydock, UK and Seingbouse, France. This investment has included new resin mixing equipment and a semi-automated racking system at the UK site and delivers further improvements to the company’s cuttable fire glass products in terms of improved processability, tighter thickness tolerances and improved optical performance.

Commenting on his appointment and the investment activity, Neil said, “Pyroguard is a leading brand in the fire rated glazing sector, with a team with a wealth of technical knowledge and a first rate customer service. I look forward to leading the company through a period of further investment for growth, building upon our market-leading product portfolio and excellent customer relationships to increase our share of the global fire resistant glass market.”
