We’re excited to welcome Tom Devine as Atkar’s new General Manager. Tom joins us from ASSA ABLOY (Lockwood), who were ranked by Forbes as being in the top 100 most innovative companies globally from 2013-2015.  Drawing on his extensive experience leading significant growth and improvement programs, Tom will provide strategic direction and innovation to the entire Atkar team.

Citing Atkar’s long and proud history and standing as a pioneering force in the building product sector as a key motivation behind his transition, Tom looks forward to expanding on the business’s existing strengths and nurturing our longstanding supplier and customer relationships.

Since joining Atkar late last year, he has begun to build on key initiatives to boost resources in research and development to assist in bringing new and exciting products to market quicker as well as focussing on improving marketing and streamlined delivery outcomes with the Pronto Program. We can also expect to see some exciting new initiatives across e-commerce, sales processes and customer relationships. These improvements will provide new opportunities for our valued customers and drive the continued growth of the business.

A strong culture for success along with clear communication has underpinned Tom’s approach, and it is a strategy that the Atkar team are excited to rollout with his guidance.

We warmly welcome Tom to Atkar and are confident in sharing his vision for the future.
