Mr Romanov replaces Nick Vanderhoest who has stepped down as Abus UK MD in anticipation of his pending retirement.

He joins ABUS with a wealth of previous experience in the security market including both mechanical and electronic security products for both residential and commercial markets. Over the past 20 years he has held various management positions successfully growing those businesses.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Romanov said: “It is a genuine privilege for me to be able to take up this appointment with Abus. During my career I have long seen Abus from the perspective of both a customer and competitor, and everything I have seen has always been excellent. The product range Abus offers is of exceptional quality, but for me, and I hope our customers, what is perhaps more important is the genuine Abus spirit.

“Knowing you are working for and with a company that has such high standards in everything they do, from product quality and innovation all the way to aftermarket support is a huge advantage. Abus are not just exceptional in the products and services they provide, but also how they apply their core values in their relationships with customers, suppliers and staff. Nick has passed on an excellent UK team that I know are as instilled as I am with the spirit of ABUS, and I look forward to helping all our existing and new customers exploit that spirit to the full.”

Do you expect to see an increase in demand for garden pest control products as the huge trend for houseplants continues?
