Veka Recycling has announced Stuart Stockley as its new managing director.

He joins the PVC post-consumer frame recycler with a history of heading manufacturing and merchanting operations for brands including Klöber Group, insulation distributors CCF and most notably Travis Perkins, where he was the head of sustainable products.

Stuart says his commitment to the broader issues of sustainability and how these may be applied commercially were key drivers for his interest in the role.

“Veka Recycling Ltd is the leading UK-based specialist PVC-U recycler and I was particularly attracted to the proposition of the commercial and social potential of collecting and returning this material for re-use over many cycles,” he said, “We have an impressive facility here in Wellingborough and I am really looking forward to collaborating with our customers, colleagues and supply partners to help drive the business forward.”

Veka Recycling’s Wellingborough plant is the most advanced of its kind in Europe. It was completed at the end of 2020 and can process PVC-U into high-quality recycled PVC-U pellet for use in the production of new window and door profiles, in addition to established high volume users including products for the electrical and HVAC industries.

It is the third to be built by Veka Group, along with those in France and Germany.
