Independent Connections Provider Matrix Networks, has expanded its sales team to take advantage of the continued growth opportunity in the industrial and commercial utility infrastructure sector.

Nayan Mehta is now Sales Manager at Matrix Networks

Two new external appointments have been made as well as an internal promotion to strengthen the ICP’s national business development reach, under the leadership of Sales Director Paul Beck.

Stepping in to the role of Sales Manager, Nayan Mehta has been part of the Matrix Networks team for four years as a Key Account Manager. Over that time, Nayan has secured significant new business contracts which have helped the Company retain its position as a leading and respected utility infrastructure provider.

Commenting on his appointment, Nayan said: “Matrix Networks is a growing business operating in a construction industry which is experiencing one of the most rapid periods of growth of any UK sector following the Covid-19 lockdown in March. Every new development needs utility infrastructure, which means opportunities are opening up for our business every day. Having worked at Matrix for a number of years I’ve got to know the business, our industry and have built good relationships across our client base and am excited about the period of growth ahead of us.”

Nayan will coordinate Matrix Networks’ business development efforts focussing on the sectors in which the Company has built a solid relationship. These include Data Centres, Logistics Parks, Commercial and Industrial Parks and Units,  Apartments and Public Sector Developments amongst others – though, the opportunity to present themselves as the provider of choice across a wider range of sectors and where the potential for network adoption exists, will become a key area of focus.

Sales Director Paul Beck, added: “Matrix Networks is evolving from the business it was 14 years ago when it was founded. If we’re to continue with our evolution and engage with the growth which the construction sector is experiencing, we need to strengthen our team. In his new role, Nayan will helping to drive our business development opportunity, engaging with all departments to help ensure our future growth is fully coordinated and our customers remain at the forefront of everything we do.”

Nayan will initially manage a team of three Business Development Managers – Stu Giles, Alex Wilson and newly-appointed  Laura Watchorn, with further recruitment planned in 2021. Matrix Networks was founded in 2006 with the vision of providing an independent solution for infrastructure installations. The Company services UK developers, main contractors, and consultants. and is accredited under CHAS and Altius, as well as Lloyd’s Register WIRS, GIRS and NERS schemes.

Independent Connections Provider Matrix Networks Group, has been awarded Gold level membership of the nationally-recognised Constructionline platform, providing confirmation that they meet industry standards across the board.

Constructionline works with construction buyers and suppliers to help speed up search, validation and purchasing decisions, opening up opportunities for members to access a wide range of procurement contracts and projects – and for buyers to access a validated pool of high quality suppliers.

Matrix Networks’ new certification therefore places them on a strong footing for securing further high profile multi-utility infrastructure contracts where the immediate validation of credentials are required, saving time and expense at the tendering stage.

Constructionline offers four levels of Membership. Matrix opted for Gold as it was the most appropriate for the size and nature of its business, and by requiring a more detailed prequalification questionnaire as well as a SSIP assessment, it would provide the evidence demanded by some of the UK’s most high profile contractors.

To qualify for Constructionline Gold Membership, Matrix Networks completed:

  • An enhanced prequalification questionnaire which went beyond the standard PAS91
  • A Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSI) assessment, providing evidence of competence in health and safety management
  • The Common Assessment Standard – a standard set of questions developed by industry to help save time and money at the prequalification stage.

Paul Beck, Matrix Networks Sales Director, said: “We’re finding more and more contractors are asking their supply chain partners to be listed on Constructionline, because it ensures they’re dealing with businesses which meet the required industry standards without having to duplicate and evaluate further prequalification assessments.

“We’re extremely pleased to have achieved Gold level membership as this is proof of our capabilities and standards as a business – and something for which we’ll work to maintain year on year. We’re obviously new to Constructionline, but are already starting to realise the benefits of being a registered member.”
