Stuart Stockley Takes the Reins at VEKA Recycling

With a background in business leadership within the building and construction products sector, Stuart Stockley has been appointed as the managing director of leading post-consumer frame recycler VEKA Recycling Ltd.

Stuart has a long history of heading manufacturing and merchanting operations for sector-leading brands, including wall and roofing components manufacturer Klöber Group, insulation distributors CCF and, notably, as the head of sustainable products for the UK’s largest builders’ merchant, Travis Perkins.

With particular skills in manufacturing and distribution, business and brand development, Stuart has a personal and business commitment to sustainability and how these may be applied commercially. Stuart said these were key drivers for his interest in the role: “VEKA Recycling Ltd is the leading UK-based specialist PVC-U recycler, and I was particularly attracted to the proposition of the commercial and social potential of collecting and returning this material for re-use over many cycles. We have an impressive facility here in Wellingborough, and I look forward to collaborating with our customers, colleagues and supply partners to help drive the business forward.

VEKA Recycling’s Wellingborough plant is the most advanced in Europe. It was completed at the end of 2020 and can process PVC-U into a high-quality recycled PVC-U pellet. This material is now used in producing new window and door profiles, in addition to established high-volume users, including products for the electrical and HVAC industries.

The site was located within central England to reduce the carbon footprint of the recycling process by containing the material recycled and then re-manufactured within the geographical borders of the UK. It is the third to be built by VEKA Group, the others being located in France and Germany.
