PVCR, the uPVC windows and doors recycling division of REHAU UK, has appointed Giles Taylor as its new National Feedstock Buyer.
Giles’ appointment will allow PVCR to accelerate its continued growth in production, and follows significant investment in equipment which has already resulted in an impressive 40% increase in output capacity.
Previously, Giles was senior feedstock buyer for UK-based uPVC recycler, Ecoplas, and as a result, brings with him the market knowledge required to help drive the PVCR business forward in a growing market. With over 30 years’ experience in sales, account management, and purchasing, across a variety of industries, Giles is perfectly-placed to strengthen the status of PVCR in an evolving supply chain.
As part of its strategic sustainability plan, REHAU aims to double its recycling output by 2020, and its most recent investments will mean PVCR is able to supply 100% of the recycled PVC required to support its co-extrusion production at the REHAU Window Production Plant in Blaenau, North Wales.
On Giles’s appointment, Richard Hardstaff, General Manager at PVCR, said: “We are delighted to welcome Giles to the team, and expect him to play an instrumental role in growing our feedstock as we bid to boost capacity and production levels significantly in the near future.”
