Former Rak Ceramics UK chairman passes away

Rob Jull

Rak Ceramics has announced the passing of Rob Jull, the former chairman and MD of the brand in the UK.

Jull was a familiar name in the KBB industry for 40 years. During that significant period he ran his own retail outlet, before becoming an agent for a number leading sanitaryware brands and creating a network of nationwide distributors.

He was approached by the CEO of RAK Ceramics UAE to represent and promote the brand in the UK and is said to have worked “tirelessly designing new products and innovations that would appeal to the UK and European markets”.

Under Jull’s leadership Rak Ceramics is said to have become the largest supplier of fireclay sinks and, according to the company, the majority of the sanitaryware ranges that he designed are not only still available but play a part in the Rak Ceramics UK story of today.

Alvin Biggs, MD of Rak Ceramics UK said: “Rob was a hugely inspirational figure who was influential in the bathroom industry, with Rak Ceramics and beyond. He certainly left his mark on the brand, and on the KBB sector as a whole. He will be sorely missed,” said.

Jull leaves behind his wife, Veronica, three sons and five grandchildren.
