Growing wood recycling firm strengthens top team

1 February 2013

A wood recycling company has kicked off a major recruitment drive by strengthening its senior management team.

Plevin, which is applying for planning permission to build a wood-fuelled biomass CHP (combined heat and power) plant at is Nottingham site, has made a series of key appointments across its transport, training and HR departments.

More new arrivals are expected in the coming months as the family-owned company continues to grow despite the ongoing economic malaise.

Plevin’s new transport manager, Chris Orrell, brings 17 years experience in managing logistics operations.

The 42-year-old is aiming to build on the success of Plevin’s transport department to continually improve the service it provides to customers.

He said “I am delighted to be working at Plevin. The team is very focused on its work and I can see a bright future for the company.”

Newly-appointed HR manager Melanie Rigby, 40, will aim to reinforce a culture of continuous improvement at Plevin. “It is a pleasure to work for Plevin” said Melanie “It is great to see such progressive thinking within a business that is creating job opportunities for the communities in which it works.”

Andy Maxwell, who was part of a team that won a Corporate Safety Award in 2010 and was shortlisted for a Motor Transport Award in 2011, will bring nearly 30 years experience in the transport, logistics and supply chain industry to his new role as training officer.

Former rugby league player Des Corfield, 43, is looking forward to bringing out the best in his staff in his new role as site manager at Plevin’s head office in Mossley.

Managing director Jamie Plevin said “We are delighted to welcome four new staff to strengthen our team. These are exciting times for Plevin, and with our new team members in place we can build further on the success we have enjoyed of late.”
