An OSWESTRY business has promoted three long-standing members of staff to new senior roles.

Aico, in Maesbury Road, has promoted Steve Trafford to sales director, after 20 years’ service, joining the company in October 2000.

In April 2019, Steve was promoted to national sales manager and admitted the next step has left him delighted.

“Becoming a director at Aico is both a very proud moment and a privilege,” he said.

“Having passed the milestone of 20 years at Aico in October, I have witnessed the consistency in the quality of the products over a very long period which is extremely important.

“What is equally important is our outstanding approach to our clients in the UK in terms of support, service, education and ethics.

“This is all down to the outstanding team we have at Aico in every single department.”

Daniel Little steps into the role of national sales manager; he joined Aico in November 2013 and has mosty recently been Northern Specification Manager.

The final promotion has seen Tina Mistry take up a new role within the company as relationship manager.

This year Tina has been a driving force in developing strategic relationships to facilitate change within the social housing sector and has now taken up this new role.

Tina said: “This promotion to create strategic collaborative partnerships across all nations is a further testament to our true commitment to genuinely want to give back to the sector and the communities that we support.

Neal Hooper, managing director of Aico said: “All three colleagues have given great service, loyalty, and commitment in keeping with our recently laid down values, for a number of years now. They thoroughly deserve their opportunities and recognition.”
