It’s an exciting time of growth and development here at Coastal as our reputation for combining great customer service with market leading hardware solutions drives new sales and new customers across the UK.
Not only is this reflected in the creation of a brand new warehouse facility at our head offices, which will be opened shortly, but has also seen the Coastal team grow again.
We have made three new appointments to key areas of the business with Neil Jones appointed as Marketing Manager, Kevin Richards in the Customer Services Team and Mike Ives heading up our 'Goods In'.
All three bring a wealth of experience and expertise in their roles and will undoubtedly make a big contribution to Coastal as we enter the next phase of our development.

Neil joins Coastal as Marketing Manager having previously worked with a range of UK organisations, helping develop global markets in sectors including training, logistics, education and industrial liquids handling.

In addition to growing the Coastal name across the UK, Neil will also be looking at developing markets for the blu™ range of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel hardware both in the UK and internationally.
“Coastal is firmly established as a trusted brand within the UK door and window hardware sector and I’m really looking forward to helping grow our market share further through the development of innovative solutions and a firm focus on customer support,” said Neil. “Coupled with the quality of the blu™ brand this is a really exciting opportunity with a progressive family business,” he added.
