bimstore has appointed Huw Arthur as a new Sales Manager to liaise and meet with product manufacturers to make them aware of BIM, and how it can benefit their business
Huw, aged 25 completed a BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing in 2015 at Sheffield Hallam University which included a placement for a year with Karcher UK as a Product Management and Marketing Executive. This experience led Huw to a role as a Technical Author for Riley Product Handling Ltd – a mechanical engineering business – where he produced all the technical literature and worked with large blue-chip clients to supply all spares, replacements and parts required.
Huw caught the sales-bug from his role at Karcher, and with the technical knowledge gained at Riley Product Handling, he was eager to combine the two areas, leading him to bimstore.
bimstore creates, distributes and hosts manufacturer approved BIM objects in all formats including Autodesk Revit, Archicad, Bentley and IFC. All content is created with the highest industry standards, and bimstore makes it easy to search, find and download the appropriate BIM objects for your project.
BIM objects contain information found in product data sheets, and their relevant technical details are added with details regarding dimensions and functionality so that designers can use them within a BIM project.
bimstore is proud to deliver the world’s best collection of BIM components that are completely free to specifiers and can help manufacturers to become BIM compliant. Huw will be taking that knowledge to trade shows and events to raise awareness of BIM to manufacturers, and is already in dialogue with a range of companies spanning from the ironmongery sector to those producing water tanks!
Commentating on his appointment, Huw said that;
“I’m keen to develop in my role and to help bimstore create an even bigger online BIM object library. I’m looking forward to working with manufacturers to develop their BIM strategies and content and to bring more companies onboard with bimstore.”
