Katherine White

Commercial Director – Thermoplastics

Katherine has a BSc in Polymer Science and over 15 years experience working with Plastribution.

I liaise with our Polyolefins suppliers to try to ensure the best outcomes for our customers in terms of availability and pricing. I then communicate this information to our sales teams to ensure they can provide meaningful advice to our customers. My main daily responsibilities are supplier liaison, stock management, forecasting and pricing of Polyolefin products.

Availability of Polyolefin products has become an increasingly important issue in the past few years. We have been trying to work more closely with our suppliers to improve planning and help alleviate these issues. As polymer production moves further away from Europe supply chain issues are also becoming more critical – we’re working on several projects to increase our expertise in this area. I’m confident that both of these factors will enable us to offer the highest service level to our customers in terms of both consistency of supply.
