Online and mail order retailer Ironmongery Direct has appointed two new managers to its product management team.

Commenting on his new role Saxby said: "One of the things that attracted me to Ironmongery Direct was the continued growth of the business, achieved over a short period of time. Having a background in distribution I'm looking forward to the challenge of sourcing new products and suppliers in new markets, which offers a great deal of flexibility and creativity in the role."
