POLYPIPE, a manufacturer of climate and water management solutions, has appointed a new managing director to lead one of its main divisions.
Steve Durdant-Hollamby will manage Polypipe Civils, part of the FTSE 250-listed multinational Polypipe Group, a developer of Green Infrastructure and SuDS solutions to the built environment sector.
Steve will also play a major role in the company’s commitment to creating innovative solutions to help to meet the challenges of climate change, a population growth and sustainable urbanisation.
The 45-year-old, who has 26 years’ experience in the water management industry, said: “I am very much looking forward to a successful future as part of the Polypipe family and feel confident I can continue to add to the impressive performance achieved by the company over the years.”
The Loughborough-based division has played a key role in projects such as tennis mecca Wimbledon’s new £7m facelift, the £150m Royal Hospital for Children and Young People in Edinburgh, and a £5.7m social housing development in Yorkshire over the last 12 months. It has also developed the UK’s first passive Green Infrastructure system capable of creating and sustaining green spaces in almost any environment, including densely populated cities.
Polypipe Group chief operating officer, Glen Sabin, said Steve’s vast sector experience and expertise would enable the civils division to “further strengthen its market position as the go-to water management systems specialist.”
“Steve brings with him a wealth of senior management and directorial experience,” he said. “His entire career has been centered around water management, and the building and construction industries.
“I am confident that the team, complemented by Steve’s experience and leadership, is capable of continuing the development and growth of the civils business in both the core infrastructure and water management solutions market.”
