February 2013

Formica Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Roy Hornibrook to the role of VIVIX® Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland.

A recent introduction to the market, VIVIX® architectural panels are rapidly becoming established as a popular solution for cladding.

Roy brings to the role extensive experience gained within the distribution and fabrication sector of the exterior façade market in the UK. During his career he has followed a significant amount of cladding projects from their conception and planning stages all the way to completion.

Jason Tidyman, Regional Director UK and Central Europe, Formica Group said: “We are delighted to have Roy join the team and work with us to develop the sales of VIVIX panels and the VIVIX brand itself in the market. He has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of building façades and having worked on projects of all sizes, he understands the nuances and customers' needs from a small, one-off installation to extensive new build or refurbishment projects”.

“We are delighted to have Roy join the team and work with us to develop the sales of VIVIX® panels and the VIVIX® brand itself in the market”, said Jason Tidyman.

Roy is looking forward to growing specification and installations of VIVIX® exterior façade panels. “I have a really exciting opportunity to draw on the quality and the heritage of the Formica® brand as I take this new product to the market. VIVIX® panels offer opportunities to play with colour and shape as well as being practical, functional and contribute to the performance of a building as a whole”. VIVIX® panels were recently chosen by Astley Signs for the building frontage of the new Morrisons Kiddicare stores in Thurrock, Merry Hill and Rotherham.

VIVIX® panels allow the architect or specifier to take into consideration appearance, design and maintenance when choosing exterior cladding. With a decorative surface on both sides, VIVIX® panels are resistant to impact and abrasion, are weather resistant and can enhance the life span of a building. They also cause minimal environmental impact as determined by Formica Group's Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

Formica Group, the inventor of laminate, marks 100 years of invention, innovation and design leadership in 2013. VIVIX exterior façade panels are an embodiment of this continued leadership in the industry.
