New Chairman and Committee Member for PMMDA following AGM

PMMDA held its’ Annual General Meeting at a breakfast event at the Telford International Centre during PDM last week.

Along with the usual business of confirming the association’s annual activities, changes to the Committee were part of the proceedings.  Having served the maximum time as PMMDA President, Tim Peet of UK Plastics Machinery stepped down from the Committee.  Existing Chairman, Nigel Flowers of Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery UK Ltd took his place as President, with current Deputy Chair Kevin Horne of Renmar Ltd stepping into Nigel’s shoes as Chairman.

Richard Hird of Premier Moulding Machinery then took on the role of Deputy Chairman, which incorporates the job of Treasurer.

With Tim’s departure from the Committee, Marcel Machado of Romi Machines UK Ltd was nominated for the vacancy on the Committee and unanimously voted in to take the position.  Nigel Baker of BMB Plastics Machinery Ltd, Colin Tirel of Arburg Limited and Andy Gibbens of Piovan UK Ltd remain as Committee members.

During the meeting, grateful thanks were given to Tim Peet who served on the Committee for many years and offered tremendous support and enthusiasm.  He was presented with a parting gift by the incoming Chairman, Kevin Horne.

Marcel was welcomed as the newest member of the Committee and it was noted that, with his enthusiasm and strong participation in past PMMDA member meetings, he will make an excellent member of the team.
