SEAN LOURENS

Managing Director

My position as managing director of the company includes strategy implementation, new business development, new product development, motivating and managing the NLA team, managing cash flow, profitability and growth. I am extremely proud of the successful history of our company and the excellent reputation that we continue to maintain, one of integrity and professionalism. Our vision to exceed customer expectations through exceptional service and sincere relationships, has become a culture within our business.

NLA has moved from being an importer of timber, boards and related products to being an international procurement specialist, capable of sourcing and importing almost any product from around the world. I realise that I can only be truly successful and content if I put God at the centre of everything that I do and I strongly believe that you can always see a persons true character by the way they treat those less fortunate than themselves.

I love what I do and I am passionate about NLA and about developing our premium LOTEX brand.

JOHN TEIXEIRA

Sales Director

Within one year of starting at NLA, I knew that importing and selling was what I wanted to do. I enjoy people and over the years, have developed strong relationships with many clients and suppliers alike. I have travelled extensively abroad, gaining a wealth of experience and establishing many solid contacts all over the world.

I am very proud of the fact that NLA has grown from being an importer and distributor of timber and board products, into an international procurement business, able to source many diverse products from North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

NLA is a dynamic and interesting enterprise where one is always learning new things and every day is an adventure.

I am particularly excited about our new premium brand of quality garage doors , automation and decking products called LOTEX, which is going to become a household name for many other quality products.

My philosophy in life is to keep learning, growing and moving forward, by having a healthy and balanced lifestyle, always putting God first.
