Vanden Recycling has appointed Matt Clark as Business Development Officer to help source regular supply of plastic scrap from the grocery, fruit and vegetable and distribution sectors.
Matt joins Vanden with an extensive background in sales and marketing, having previously had a role at polymer distribution firm Polydist where he primarily worked with injection moulding businesses.
David Wilson, Managing Director of Vanden UK, said Matt’s knowledge and previous experience will help Vanden work more closely with fruit and vegetable producers and distributors:
“Matt’s role will be to source regular plastic supply from food producers and distributors, such as ‘one-way’ trays and crates used in air freight or other non-returnable packaging that must be recycled, as well as helping businesses in this sector optimise their plastic recycling processes.
“Matt has a great history in the plastics sector. At Vanden, we always look for those who have the right attitude and share our company values – combined with his sound technical knowledge; he was the ideal person for the role.
“I know Matt will bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the role, helping to secure feedstock for our UK processing site while satisfying the needs of our suppliers.”
Matt said he was eager to work with a business like Vanden and help the company succeed:
“The recycling market is only going to grow, and Vanden offered a fantastic opportunity for me to be a part of its growth. Right from the very first interview, I could tell Vanden was a very good company to be working for and is headed in the right direction. I know it will continue to grow and help businesses make the most of their plastic scrap and ensure it is dealt with correctly.”
