Trio of new appointments

Veka Recycling has made three significant appointments at its Wellingborough plant, which is now fully operational.

With a background managing areas including logistics, procurement, customer service and sales, Gavin Reay was recently appointed as business development manager. Gavin’s plans for the role include the development Veka Recycling’s client base to obtain a higher yield of post-consumer frames and off-cuts, ultimately producing a larger volume of recycled pellet.

With key responsibilities initially including the creation of standardised work processes to reduce errors, Magdalena Miler joins as quality engineer. Magdalena brings experience in areas such as quality visual inspection, customer liaison, product and process auditing, continuous improvement, and training, all obtained in her previous roles working for a large automotive company.

Elsewhere, Rai Szymanski was promoted to yard supervisor after working for Veka Recycling for three years. Described as the company’s ‘resident expert’ in loading and unloading vehicles, Rai’s enthusiasm to progress has culminated in his first management job.

Veka Recycling’s managing director Simon Scholes said: “With our brand new, state-of-the-art plant now fully up and running, the arrival of Gavin and Magdalena – and Rai’s well-deserved promotion – further reinforces our future development plans. All three have been specially selected for their talents in their respective fields, and their appointments are significant in helping us continuously improve our recycling operations going forward.”
