Wood recycler Jamie Plevin has been elected to join the Board of the Wood Recyclers’ Association (WRA).
Jamie, who is the Managing Director of R Plevin & Sons Ltd, said he is delighted to be joining the WRA. He was elected at the WRA’s Annual General Meeting which took place in Coventry yesterday (Wednesday). He replaces wood recycler David Laing who stood down from the position at the end of last year to spend more time with his family.
Jamie said: “I’m really pleased to have been elected to the Board. Plevin have been members of the WRA for a long time and when the opportunity arose to put myself forward I jumped at the chance.
“I think the challenges that are currently facing the wood recycling industry have never been greater and I am really looking forward to becoming an active board member.”
Andy Hill, Chair of the WRA, said: “We’re really pleased to have Jamie on the Board. He will bring a wealth of sector experience and knowledge to the table which will be invaluable in helping us to continue to grow as an association.”
Plevin is a family run business with four sites in Mossley, Greater Manchester, Elkesley, Nottinghamshire, Hazlehead, South Yorkshire and Boston, Lincolnshire. The company processes over 400,000 tonnes per year of various grades of virgin and waste wood materials.
Jamie has worked in the business for 30 years during which time it has expanded through organic growth and numerous acquisitions to become a market leader within the wood recycling and animal bedding industry.
Jamie is married with two children and enjoys playing and watching football, mountain biking and skiing in his spare time.
