Philip Prigg has been appointed new Product Sales Manager, responsible for High Security Locking, by Pickersgill-Kaye to oversee the Leeds lock manufacturer’s continuing expansion into both home and overseas markets.
Mr Prigg has worked for ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions and Pickersgill-Kaye’s parent company, for over eight years in areas of manufacturing, installation and product sales. During that time he became very familiar with the company’s renowned high security multipoint locks and the heavy duty perimeter gate lock range.
He said: “I’m thrilled to be working for Pickersgill-Kaye and promoting their products – I’ve always had a great relationship with them. I think that they make the most superior high security locks for many sectors, including protecting critical national infrastructure sites, the Government and Ministry of Defence.
“I’m confident that with the group’s support, coupled with a long standing reputation for performance, strength, security and durability, I have an excellent platform to take Pickersgill-Kaye’s locks to the forefront of the high security market.”
Pickersgill-Kaye’s Director – Business Development, Harry Griffiths, said: “Philip is a valuable addition to our team. His extensive experience with ASSA ABLOY makes him a natural fit for our high security locks as we look to expand both our product range and break into new markets.”
