THE managing director of Louth-based technical plastics compounder, Luxus, will speak as part of a prestigious panel at a national manufacturing event today.
Peter Atterby will be promoting the benefits environmentally positive polymers can deliver, alongside director of Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), Peter Maddax, at the Swalec Stadiunm in Cardiff.
Mr Atterby, pictured, who has overseen tremendous growth in the Fairfield Industrial Estate business, working with sector leading clients to deliver innovation, said: “Luxus is delighted to be invited to speak at this event, the Welsh auto component industry has enjoyed sustained growth in recent years. It will provide a great opportunity therefore, for Luxus and fellow industry experts to dispel the myth regarding the perceived quality of recycled content polymers compared to prime alternatives.
“We will focus on the critical role environmentally positive polymers now play in supporting global auto interior component design, to deliver greater fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions while also satisfying automakers’ need to reduce the carbon footprint of vehicles.”
In March this year Luxus acquired South Wales based additive and masterbatch specialist, Colour Tone. The company is known for its pioneering work with WRAP to address the problem of black food packaging waste, which cannot be sorted by infra-red detection technology.
