Bord na Móna UK has appointed Claire Ball as Business Development Manager to cover the South West area. Commenting on her new role, Claire said, “I’m delighted to be working with Bord na Móna UK. The garden industry is a great sector to be in anyway and to join the company as it expands its presence in the UK is very exciting.”
Bord na Móna UK’s commercial manager, Tommy Gill said of Claire’s appointment, “Bord na Móna UK has secured a significant market share in growing media with the peat free brand Vital Earth, and the peat reduced brand Growise, since it entered the UK market. Both are in high demand due to the poor peat harvest, the industry move to peat free and the exceptional quality of the products. With the award winning Firemagic range of solid fuel and ignition just hitting the market as well with strong demand for good value home heating solutions, it’s a very busy time. We are therefore particularly pleased to welcome Claire to the team, which gives us full national area coverage for the garden centre trade and allows us to continue growth in the UK”.
In Ireland, Bord na Móna is a leading producer of eco-fuels, growing media and environmental products as well as offering waste collection, resource recovery and renewable energy expertise.
