HIGH POINT – U.K.-based bathroom furniture and fixtures resource Imperial Bathrooms has named Matthew Handley supply chain manager.

He comes to the company from Elta Fans Ltd., where he worked for more than 16 years most recently as production manager.

In his new position, Handley will be responsible for overseeing global and regional supply chain activities as well as planning logistics, evaluating purchasing strategies and helping to oversee order fulfillment and distribution.

“I feel honored to become part of such a vibrant and dynamic business at what is currently, a hugely difficult time for so many in our sector,” Handley said.

“Matthew has taken on this role at an exciting time for Imperial Bathrooms, as we forge ahead with strengthening our offering and realizing our collective goals for growth and expansion,” added Graham Bucktrout, managing director. “In his previous role, Matt has demonstrated a highly developed strategic ability, as well an aptitude for analytical and practical thinking, which I have no doubt will prove invaluable to our supply chain.”

James Stevens, creative director, said that Handley comes to the company during a challenging time, given that COVID-19 continues to place “unprecedented demand on the economy and supply chains.”

“However that presents us with many opportunities to build relationships quickly and work closely with our valued customers, which as an outgoing ‘people person’ will come naturally to Matthew,” Stevens noted. “He has already shown himself to be a quick learner and great communicator; it goes without saying that we are delighted to have him on board.”
