We are pleased to announce the promotion of Rob Walker to Manufacturing Director. Rob arrived at the company in 2014 as the Engineering Manager, bringing with him 17 years experience in the plastics industry.
Rob began his career in the plastics industry fresh out of school. He worked for a small moulding company where he spent 13 years learning everything there was to know about the production of plastic housewares. Now in his 37th year Rob has seen huge changes to the industry especially with breakthroughs in plastics manufacturing technology.
“As Engineering Manager I have been responsible for the huge change in infrastructure at What More UK, overseeing the upgrade in manufacturing equipment and processes. This included improved specification of new machines, moulds and associated equipment, which in turn has allowed What More to be more efficient to meet unprecedented demand in the plastics housewares sector”
As Manufacturing Director Rob will now oversee the impressive collection of new machinery that has massively increased production times, and look to the future with further investments to What More UK.
