A specialist with 30 years’ chemicals and fuel industry experience has joined RE:Group Ltd as it continues to develop its industrial fuel oils division.
Paul Brown, pictured, is the Hull-based company’s new industrial fuel sales manager and joins after ten years as a waste management broker and solvent sales representative.
RE:Group, which has extensive experience in waste oil management and hydrocarbon recovery, currently handles more than 50 million litres of marine and industrial oil each year and sells specialist fuels to sectors such as brewing, food production, aggregates and abattoirs.
Phil Evans, RE:Group’s commercial director, comments: “Paul has a wealth of relevant experience and has worked with a wide range of industries across Yorkshire, Lancashire and around the UK for many years. He has been brought on board to help us with the growth of our fuel oils business for a range of industries that are heavy users of heating oil.”
Mr Brown began his career working in the stores of a chemicals company in Castleford, where he still lives. He then moved into the recycling industry working for several blue chip companies. “I’m looking forward to the new challenge and intend to use my knowledge gained through working in industry to contribute to growth at the company,” he says.
His appointment to RE:Group follows the retirement of fuel sales manager Derek Crossley, who has been with the company since 2012 and has enjoyed a 48-year career, including six years in the Royal Navy and 30 years in the fuel industry.
RE:Group, which was established in 1996, now has three sites in Hull, including its new head office, and a collection site in North Lincolnshire. It has in-house UKAS-accredited laboratories and invests significantly in research and development.
