Supportive Directors on Board to Help Mentor you to Sales Greatness!

We always find it hard when talking about ourselves! Does every business start with humble beginnings, or was it just Metex?

In 2014 in our makeshift offices, two separate garages, 300 miles apart, freezing cold while trying to type, two directors began designing, fabricating and painting parts by hand, securing orders that kept the midnight oil burning…

Now, with manufacturing facilities in the UK and internationally we provide innovative construction sector related products that we distribute across the construction industry.

Working within construction tools, pest control, drainage and wall fixings sub sectors. With several award-winning products available through well-known distribution and retail brands. Metex have recently reached agreement with two respected global manufacturers to exclusively distribute their ranges in the UK.

We know our fixings category is especially strong and techically excellent, which is making us a first choice for DIY and Hardware outlets including some well known highstreet names. Our market share is growing; and the reason we want a trainee to work on it with us! We’re looking to grow our own sales team with a driven & self-motivated trainee to focus and deliver ‘new sales’ of our wall fixings category. We are offering a fulltime salary with a strong OTE.

As well as selling our established in house Corefix brand, you’ll be selling a new and quality range of fixings from Cobra in North America to a wide range of UK retailers. We’ll need you to quickly develop and grow sales and manage accounts from the local hardware store to national DIY chains.


Metex focuses on three main areas of the construction industry:

  • Screeds and Concrete
  • Fixings Hardware (this is where you’ll start!)
  • Plumbing and Drainage

Our goal is simple; to create, design and manufacture innovative products for the construction industry, and any sub sectors where we feel a real opportunity exists. Our ethos is to make products that make a real difference to those that use them. We work hard to find solutions that make a job simpler, take less time, and ultimately create cost saving solutions for the tradesperson on site using our products.
