Adrian’s Background 


Not many people can say that they started to develop an interest in ironmongery from the age of six, but that was when I first found myself learning about my father’s building supplies and ironmongery company. This paved the way for me to gain a keen interest in ironmongery and I naturally ended up working in the industry.


Before working with ironmongery, I developed my skills and experience in a number of roles. When I left college, I started an apprenticeship with a local building firm where I learnt about a range of trades from welding and metal fabrication, to carpentry, electrical systems and vehicle trimming. It gave me a great skillset and understanding of working in the trade.


In 2008, I joined parcel delivery company TNT, which was initially intended as a stop gap, but after realising how much I enjoyed working and interacting closely with customers, I knew that customer service was a key strength of mine.


So, when in 2010 my dad asked me to join his company, I couldn’t refuse the chance to work with ironmongery, in a customer service role. I joined as a Sales Representative and spent two years advising and supporting ironmongery trade customers.


The company was sold in 2011, when my dad retired, so I moved to an ironmongery company in Bridgwater Somerset as a Sales Representative. It was a varied role, and I became involved with most aspects of the company from product buying, supplier sourcing, technical specification, product training, to marketing and deliveries.    


My Role at BJ Waller


Joining BJ Waller was a very easy decision, it’s the kind of place you want to work at. I know the team well having worked with them in the past and I know that everyone here has in-depth knowledge and a real enthusiasm for their role.


My position as Technical Sales Representative involves promoting BJ Waller as a company to new and existing customers throughout the South West.  My aim is to help customers and their businesses stand out from the competition by advising on the most up-to-date products to find the best fit for their projects.


The working environment here at BJ Waller is really positive and I can see why the company continues to grow. I can only see BJ Waller heading towards exciting things in the future, something I’m proud to be a part of.

Why Hinges Must Be Right On Fire Doors

Fire safety is on everyone’s lips. The message that buildings must be fitted out with reliable and effective fire doors, and have designated fire escape routes that are clearly signposted, is louder than it has been for a long time.
