Paul Bend is Stelrad's new manufacturing director
Until April 2019, Paul has been working in a senior position at Wavin in Doncaster. He was at Wavin for five years initially as site operation manager, before being promoted to manufacturing director with responsibility not just for the Doncaster site, but for products being manufactured in Germany and Poland as well. The next step was into the role of European supply chain director looking after the planning and logistics for the UK and Ireland, but also France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
He says: “I’m delighted to be joining Stelrad at a time when a decision has been made to invest significantly in the plant and equipment here. The key challenge will be to manage the upgrade of the manufacturing operation whilst ‘doing the day job’ – continuing to manufacture radiators without interfering with the normal operations.”
He is a keen football follower, a Liverpool fan and ex-season ticket holder at Anfield. Apart from that he enjoys time in the gym to switch off from the real world.
