West Yorkshire-based kitchen and bathroom distributor JP Distribution has named Tony Barnes as its new commercial director.

Barnes has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, having previously worked in the bathroom division of the Spring Ram Corporation as well as spending nine years running his own business.

“We are really pleased that Tony has joined the business at this time,” said JP Distribution managing director Graham Bucktrout. “We have worked together successfully before and his skillset is perfectly aligned to where our business is focussed.

“That’s in delivering great customer service, building relationships and broadening into new markets. I’m confident that under Tony’s leadership, our experienced and valued team at JP will develop and grow in the current uncertain climate.”
