Vanden Recycling names new business development manager

Paul Scott

PAUL Scott has been appointed business development manager at Vanden Recycling with a remit to target the thermoforming and vacuum forming sectors.

He has been in the plastic manufacturing and packaging sector for more than 35 years, with Vanden revealing he was part of the team at Marks and Spencer that established the feasibility of using recycled plastic (rPET) in food packaging.

Paul said, “I am a huge exponent of recovering and recycling plastic waste and I have always been. Plastics are wrongly getting a lot of bad press because the world in general doesn’t know how to handle them for future uses. Being part of Vanden, a business that has set out not only to instigate this process but also to advise, educate and assist companies to do the right thing, ticks all the boxes for me.”

David Wilson, MD of Vanden UK added, “He’s got depth of knowledge, experience and a great track record in exactly the sectors we want to penetrate. While he’s been used to selling raw material into the thermoforming and vacuum forming sectors, that’s exactly what we are looking for because he has great insight into the scrap they produce and the needs of those sectors.”
