Who are the Marshall-Tufflex Specification Managers?

Barry’s five-year electrical apprenticeship kick-started a career in the M&E contracting industry that spanned 35 years.

During this time, Barry worked on a wide and varied range of projects including rail, prisons, government buildings and education facilities. He was also Resident Engineer at Stansted Airport for six years.

How can our specification team help you?
With all three Specification Managers in place, we are equipped to support designers, contractors and wholesalers up and down the country, working across a wide range of projects – including commercial, healthcare, education and residential premises, as well as rail and aviation to mention a few.
We understand that every project is different, which is why we work closely with you to inform the specification and align it to the needs of each individual application – from the tender stages of a project right through to project completion.
Sustainability is big on the agenda at design, prequalification, and tender stages and our team are able to work closely with customers to help improve the carbon impact of their projects, with the use of cable management products manufactured from recycled PVC-U.
We have been incorporating recycled content into our products for over 25 years and in 2020, we recorded an impressive 74% recycled content across our range. As well as encouraging other manufacturers of PVC-U cable management products to take a leaf out of our book and increase their use of recycled material, we are also calling on specifiers and contractors to make sure that, as standard, all PVC-U trunking solutions installed include a minimum of 50% recycled material.
