It really is a family affair at Kemtile, as the leading hygienic flooring company strengthens its team with the appointment of not one but two Sleights.

Dave was the first of the Sleight family to be recruited as Contracts Manager earlier this year. And now son Mike has joined Kemtile as estimator surveyor.

Dave brings with him 33 years’ experience to the company, gained with some of the biggest brands from the UK’s food and drink, construction, pharmaceutical, commercial, retail and aerospace sectors.

And now Mike, a Keele University graduate with four years industrial and commercial flooring industry experience under his belt, is supporting and advising Kemtile customers throughout the quotation process for their flooring projects.

Dave says of the family additions to the team: “For over three decades, I have managed the end-to-end installation of a wide range of epoxy, polyurethane, MMA and tiled flooring systems across many different industries. It goes without saying that I’m now delighted to have now brought my knowledge and experience to Kemtile. I’m guessing some of this must have rubbed off on Mike over the years as he entered into the same sector when he left university.

“With a real focus on project planning and cost-management, I feel that I can add real value to Kemtile’s customers old and new – delivering top quality industrial flooring and drainage solutions to meet the most exact requirement and highest expectations for long term results.

“I’m very much looking forward to furthering my career here at Kemtile, whist playing a key role in the continued success and growth of the business.”

Kemtile Director Stephen Westley said of the double appointment: “We were delighted to have attracted someone of David’s calibre to the company and straight away our customers were reaping the benefits of his vast experience and expertise. When we found out that his son Mike had embarked upon a similar career path and had so many valuable skills to offer the company too, we were keen to recruit him.

“We’re celebrating our 40-year anniversary this year and it’s an exciting time in terms of our own growth and development so it’s great to have this father and son team on board. Welcome to the company, David and Mike.”
