Wallsend’s Chemson chemical plant has recruited four new members of staff to help it as it looks to expand.
The Northumberland Dock Road plant, already the world’s largest manufacturer of PVC stabilisers, is boosting its manufacturing and business development capabilities.
Mark Dobson has been taken on as sales director for the UK and Scandinavia, Chris Cheeseman has been appointed technical service manager, and Carl Atkinson and Glenn Roach join the firm’s engineering team to improve its manufacturing processes.
Chemson chief strategy officer Alexander Hofer said: “We are delighted to welcome these high-calibre new team members.
“Each of them boasts an extremely strong track record.”
“Chemson’s UK manufacturing centre has long been thought of as a sleeping giant with lots of untapped potential.
“Under new, committed ownership, we now have a long-term strategy for growth in place, and these new appointments will play a vital role in this strategy as we move forward into a new phase in our evolution.”
Paul Knowles, managing director of Chemson’s Wallsend manufacturing plant, added: “As well as the skills that these new appointments bring, we are able to tap into extensive additional technical capabilities through our European network of resources.
“Going forward, we believe this unrivalled expertise will position us as the market leaders in our field.”
