South Wales-based water management solutions provider, Asset International Ltd (Asset), has appointed Vikki Smith as financial director, as it highlights its plans to consolidate and build on record sales figures.
The appointment follows a successful year for the company, which manufactures the Weholite range of HDPE structured wall pipe and has recorded bumper profits with sales rising month on month.

Asset International Ltd (Asset), has announced record sales of its Weholite products, breaking their monthly sales record for the third consecutive month, despite official figures that manufacturing output in the UK is in decline.
Asset, which is part of the UK-based infrastructure, building and construction products group, Hill & Smith Holdings, achieved £1.65 million in sales during July, the highest ever for the company despite the UK’s manufacturing sector shrinking at its fastest rate for more than three years in July, according to official figures.
