Metal roof attachment technology company, S-5!, has appointed Blair Irvine to the role of ANZ business and engineering manager.
S-5! Is currently expanding its operations throughout Australian, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
S-5! CEO and Founder, Rob Haddock, said the expansion is being driven by regional market growth in solar and HVAC.
“We have identified a need in the market for prudent solar and HVAC attachment solutions and the opportunity to scale within the Asia-Pacific region,” he said.
Irvine will be responsible for providing on-site technical support and developing industry relationships with EPCs and distributors to increase market awareness.
With 15 years of industry experience, Irvine has a deep understanding of all aspects of the industry and is very familiar with the S-5! product line through his previous work experience.
He brings an array of hands-on construction skills and technical consulting in a business development capacity, predominantly for large scale commercial/industrial building projects, providing solutions and growth for companies and clients.
Originally from New Zealand, Irvine attended Aoraki Polytechnic, completing certificate courses and training in various aspects of construction. He lived in Melbourne for 10+ years to further develop his career before relocating back to New Zealand.
A proven technology, S-5! has a global portfolio of more than 3.5 Gigawatts of rooftop solar arrays on some of the world’s most notable buildings, including five Costco stores in Australia.
This is in addition to more than 15,000 residential solar installations in over 50 countries from Australia to Zimbabwe.
S-5! also introduced its GripperFix mounting solution to the region, used to attach roof-mounted utilities, such as split system condensing units, duct supports, communication equipment and service walkways, ensuring a secure and dependable attachment solution that preserves the integrity of the roof and avoids destructive algae, corrosion and rust.
“As S-5! continues to grow and expand, we remain future-forward thinking focused on constant development and growth,” Haddock said.
“We are very excited to welcome Blair to the S-5! family. The depth of knowledge and experience he brings to our company and our clients is key to our continued success and growth in the Asia-Pacific region.”
