Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has strengthened its service offering with three new appointments across its specification and sales teams.
Andy Johnston joins Charcon as its new Specification Manager. An experienced key accounts manager, Andy brings with him a wealth of experience from the architect and designer sectors. Reporting to the National Specification Manager, Clinton Young, Andy will be responsible for managing existing clients and developing new relationships with architects, specifiers and local authorities in the Midlands and East regions.
Commenting on his new appointment, Andrew says: “Commercial landscaping is a fascinating industry and one which I am proud to now be a part of. Interpreting and understanding our clients’ design intent is at the core of my approach to ensure delivery of tailored and successful projects, time after time.
“It was an easy decision to join the team and the extended Aggregate Industries family. I view Charcon as a progressive and innovative company, with much to offer the landscaping sector. My personal mission is to inform the existing and up and coming architects of the future, who will be shaping our landscapes for decades to come, on the full array of what Charcon has to offer.”
In addition to Andy’s appointment and in response to growing business opportunities in the North and South Central areas, Charcon has also bolstered its sales team by recruiting two Territory Sales Managers.

With over 10 years’ experience working in various roles, Luke has developed an extensive knowledge of the market, as well as excellent commercial relationships with key contacts, and is looking forward to the fresh challenge of working for a manufacturer. Michael Drew will be responsible for the South Central region.
