Ben Sly, Sales and Marketing Manager, Pop Up Products Ltd.
Standing for Election to the EHA EHA Supply Chain Board 2021
I started my journey in the Hire Industry in 2009, and even earlier than that when I worked for a Local Timer Merchant in Blackpool.
I think I can say I have a complete understanding of the construction industry we supply and support currently in 2021. I gained this by starting working for my local Hire company Smiths Equipment Hire. To then take the step up in 2012 to work for Youngman Group (WernerCo), the UK's leading aluminium tower manufacturer. After nearly six years, I was presented with an opportunity at my current employer, POP UP Products (NSG). Their innovation of the MI Tower Range changed the aluminium tower market.
Sitting on the supplier board, I can give an insight into all aspects of the processes needed from an End-user to a supplier, along with fresh eyes, by being someone new to the HAE. I believe that I have a good network of customers that I can engage with to get feedback and understand their needs to support the HAE members.
