Hightex Group plc (AIM:HTIG), a leading designer and installer of large membrane roofs and façades worldwide, has appointed Abchurch Communications to provide ongoing financial and corporate PR advice.
Abchurch, one of the UK’s leading financial, corporate and investor communications consultancies, has taken on a remit to build up the profile of Hightex as a leading global supplier and installer of large area tensile polymer membranes.
The membranes have a variety of applications, but are typically used in roofs and façade for sporting stadiums and arenas; airport terminals; train stations; shopping malls and other buildings. Hightex has been involved in the construction of a number of landmark structures including The Wimbledon centre court retractable roof, the Burg al Arab Hotel in Dubai and the grandstand roof at Ascot Race Course. Hightex believes that its involvement in these high profile projects as well as its pioneering use of environmentally friendly materials will help propel it into the spotlight as demand for visually interesting, energy efficient buildings grows.
Leading the Abchurch account will be Henry Harrison-Topham, Managing Director and Simone Elviss, Account Manager.
