Andrew Waterfield

Product Supervisor – Styrenics and Specialities

Andrew has a BSc (Hons) in Polymer Technology, and over 20 years’ experience in the polymer industry.

As the Product Supervisor for the Styrenics and Specialities departments, I act as liaison between external suppliers, and Plastribution sales teams.
My role includes Purchasing, Stock management, Price negotiation and quoting, Market trend analysis and Material sourcing.

Material availability is key, and is carefully monitored and controlled, but this needs to be balanced with price. Using experience, and careful analysis of market data and trends we aim to purchase at to best price, while also predicting possible price movement. We can share this information with customers, assisting with their purchasing decisions.
