Falmec expands UK sales team due to increase in appliance business

Premium kitchen appliance specialist, Falmec, has announced the addition of David Fell to its UK sales team.

Mr Fell joins Falmec UK next month as Regional Business Manager for the North of England to drive sales of Falmec’s specialist extraction and induction appliances in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Merseyside.

The company has reported that revenues are up by 112 per cent – almost doubling the impressive record achieved following its launch as Falmec’s UK subsidiary at the beginning of 2020. The addition of Mr Fell reflects a significant increase in sales and enquiries for the brand since the height of the pandemic, it said.

Mr Fell is very well-known by premium kitchen retailers in the North of the country because for the last 23 years he has been covering a similar area for Blanco UK. As a result, he has already had significant experience in selling cooker hoods, alongside the brand’s hallmark sink and tap ranges.

Mr Fell said: “I am grateful to Ron Blount, Sean Drumm and all at Falmec UK for providing me with this much-needed new challenge in my career. It gives me great pleasure to be representing such an iconic Italian brand and I am looking forward to introducing its extensive range of premium extraction and induction products to my dealer network in the North.”

Ron Blount, who heads up the UK sales team, added: “Having worked with David for many years at Blanco, I have no doubts that he will be an excellent addition to the Falmec team.  David’s track record speaks for itself in terms of experience and longevity, so we are delighted that he has agreed to come on board to further strengthen our presence in the North of England.”
