British battery collection and recycling company G&P Batteries has appointed Greg Clementson as managing director.
Former commercial director Clementson takes over the role from Michael Green, who is to take up a role as Special Projects Director.
In a statement, the company said the move follows a review by parent company Ecobat, the largest lead smelting company in the world, to focus more on G&P’s waste battery business moving forward.
“Greg will concentrate on continuing the work to develop G & P into a world-class facility and as the recognised expert for the collection and consolidation of waste batteries in the UK,” it said.
“This frees up Michael to concentrate on the developing markets and processes, including the ground-breaking challenge of recycling of hybrid automotive batteries, which is set to be a major issue in the future.”
“The world of waste batteries is facing some challenging times ahead and these changes are intended to confirm G & P’s position as the leading UK waste battery specialist,” said Greg Clementson. “I’m delighted to be taking over the mantle of managing director, a role that Michael has embraced passionately over the last 18 years.”
There are two further additions to G&P’s senior team. David Brookes has joined as site operations manager after 25 years managing tyre production with Goodyear/Dunlop, while Adam Williams has taken up the role of head of finance.
