PVC-U window and door recycling specialist, VEKA Recycling, has strengthened its team with 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 also joins the company 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.

Rai Szymanski

Elsewhere, Rai Szymanski has been 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. Rai, who confidently operates the VEKA Recycling crane and Telehandler, is responsible for accepting all incoming material for onward processing through the site, as well as the smooth loading of all vehicles departing the site with its recycled pellet on board. Rai said: “It is great to be recognised for my hard work and I am looking forward to building my team so that the site runs smoothly at all times.”

VEKA Recycling’s Managing Director, Simon Scholes, added: “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.”
