Following a record year, SD Sealants, the UK’s leading sealant and cosmetic repair company, is expanding its offering in London with new Area Manager, David Desportes, at the helm.

The company, which provides sealant application and cosmetic repairs for house builders and commercial businesses, has seen rapid growth in the past year, having opened new offices and created 20 new jobs, and will now be turning its attention to London for 2018.

Former senior finisher David Desportes will be heading up the expansion, having spent a number of years in London, working on well-known developments such as Sky Gardens and the Shard.

Nick Jones, Managing Director at SD Sealants, said on the appointment: “David’s experience in the construction sector is impressive. We are going through a period of major growth at the moment, recruiting more staff and expanding across the UK. So he has joined at an important time for the company and having someone of David’s calibre join us is fantastic. I’m confident that his experience will be invaluable as we look to grow our services in London.”

The new division is recruiting for a number of cosmetic repairs technicians in London, and will be focusing primarily on the hotel and catering sectors.

As well as expanding its offering, SD Sealants will also be taking part in this year’s Wales Week in London, an event that showcases the talent and expertise businesses in Wales bring to the UK capital, held in March.

On his new role, David said: “Bringing an already well-established and organised company into London is a fantastic opportunity and I am thrilled to be joining SD Sealants at this exciting time in the company’s history.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked alongside some of the biggest contractors in the building and renovation business, and I’m really looking forward to a new chapter where there is so much potential for success.”

Launched in 1973, SD Sealants and Cosmetic Repairs originated as a family run business in Somerset that specialised in the supply and application of sealant.

Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the UK’s largest sealant and cosmetic repair companies, with nine offices across England, Scotland and Wales.
