Coming and going

It’s all about people this week, with big changes including a couple of the best known names in the industry. Wolfgang Gorner, so much a part of Rehau for so many years, is joining Epwin as the first – though probably not the last – top level appointment by its new MD Clare O’Hara. Read story

Whether you are into movers, shakers, lock snappers or tax dodgers, we hope you find something to interest you in this week’s issue.
