Mike Dunn

Structural waterproofing specialist, Mike Dunn, has joined the Triton team to support specifiers in the South West and Wales, and to develop Triton’s business in that area.

Mike has spent the last 11 years as an installing contractor as well as many years before that working with the design and specification of waterproofing and other remedial systems. Coupled with his CSSW qualification, his in depth knowledge and experience means he will be able to provide effective and practical solutions to architects and surveyors, as well as training and technical back up to contractors during installation.

Mike believes his practical experience will be particularly invaluable in his new role. “My knowledge of the on-site challenges faced by installers will help shape our design philosophy,” he said.   Triton Sales Director, Neil Taylor added “Mike worked with Triton many years ago and we are delighted to welcome him back to the team. His knowledge from both supplier and contractor perspectives will be a great asset to Triton.”
