New technical manager

Vertik-Al has appointed Tristan Pope as technical manager.

To meet the changing demands of the business, the role will focus primarily on environmental strategy, monitoring and management; quality benchmarking; the implementation of sustainable pre-treatment processes; waste reduction; minimising the company’s carbon footprint; and implementing lean manufacturing principles.

The board of directors said the appointment will help develop Vertik-Al as a sustainable, modern business, one that is both efficient and competitive, with a high-quality product and low environmental impact.

As a qualified biochemist, Tristan will challenge existing processes and bring focus and commitment to the role.

Tristan will report to production director, Andy Best.

“Tristan will also work closely with our supply chain to support them in attaining the standards we ourselves are striving towards,” Andy said.
