Certikin Lifts The Cover On Its New Team
To cope with demand, Certikin has doubled the size of its automatic cover department to offer an enhanced service with greater product support, a faster technical response and more efficient quote and order turnaround.

Certikin’s Automatic Covers department has proved a very busy sector of the business with sales accelerating significantly year-on-year. As a result, the company has recently appointed two new technical sales advisors, Daniel Green and Ryan Collins, to assist Mark Adams with the market-leading slatted Roldeck and Coverstar safety covers. At the helm is the very experienced Sales Manager Jo Catterall. Following a brief departure from Automatic Covers to focus on H & V, Jo is now skillfully dividing her time between the two departments.

Mark Adams has many years experience with automatic covers, including their installation and there is nothing that he doesn’t know about them! His role is to offer customers a high level of technical support, assessing projects for suitability to accept a Coverstar or Roldeck, and processing quotes and orders with precision and speed.

Daniel Green joined the team in May after working for the Lotus Formula I team. Whilst he is a newcomer to the pool industry, his technical mind, can-do attitude and customer-focused attitude make him ideal for the job. Like Mark and Ryan, Daniel will be assessing projects for their suitability, plus processing quotes and orders, as well as offering technical support.
Daniel says: “One of my roles at Lotus was store man, looking after parts due to be put on the F1 car for whichever race required it. I worked closely with the race team which made the role a very time sensitive job; every part was urgent, so I not only had to keep everyone happy (very much like working at Certikin) but have everything done by a certain time as the car cannot wait for you.”

Ryan Collins joined Certikin as a warehouse operative in 2007. In 2008 he helped move the Coverstar operation down from Certikin North in Leeds to Certikin’s HQ in Witney. Since then he has become fully conversant with the workings of the product having been responsible for running the day-to-day planning and action of the production/delivery schedule and stock/transport enquiries; taking deliveries, and organising bulk orders from the USA.

Ryan says: “I believe my back-ground experience with Coverstar, and pre-existing knowledge of stock codes and warehouse production has given me a huge head start in my new role as Technical Sales Advisor. I'm really looking forward to becoming a valued member of the sales team.”
