Meet the team

Phil Little

I have worked at Plastribution since 2015, joining the business from industry as an active customer. Having worked in various technical and commercial roles within the business, I now lead our frontline technical team.

As Technical & Business Development Manager, I am responsible for how we best serve our customers and suppliers with their technical requirements. This begins with any project a customer may want support with, no matter how big or small. As a multi-faceted team with a varied skillset, we believe we are able to help get a project off the ground when others cannot. Working closely with our supplier base, we help bring new polymer innovations to market in a variety of processing methods. Within the team, we have expertise ranging from polymer chemistry, through to toolmaking and product design.

I also lead our customer training program, with the aim of sharing information with our customers to best support them in their roles.
