Polypipe's David Hall has been elected as Vice President of the BPF
David Hall, the Chief Executive of the Polypipe Group Plc has been elected as Vice-President of the British Plastics Federation, the trade body for the UK's £19 billion turnover plastics industry.
An honours graduate in mechanical engineering, he brings with him almost twenty years' experience at board level in the construction products sector of the plastics industry and has previously served as a former President of the BPF's Plastics Pipes Group.
''I am delighted to be given this opportunity to carry out the role of BPF's Vice President and to share in the overall leadership of the Federation,” commented Hall. “Manufacturing is critical to the UK economy and I am keen to put my experience, gleaned within construction products manufacturing, to broader use in the wider plastics industry.''
With Polypipe' s leading position as a manufacturer of plastic pipe systems, operating primarily in the UK construction market, but with an operational presence in France, and a developing export business in the Middle East and elsewhere, the BPF says it can draw on a rich store of experience to help inform its programme.
BPF President, Mike Boswell, added: ''Everybody within the BPF is thrilled to have a businessman of David's stature on board. He is a true champion of British industry and I am very much looking forward to working with him, especially since support for the construction sector has been one of my key Presidential themes.''
