Peter has over 40 years experience in the plastics industry, having joined Luxus as a graduate apprentice in 1970. Since that time he has gained experience in various roles across the business becoming an Executive Assistant in 1973, then at the tender age of 28 he became a Director and five years later, he had proved himself sufficiently to be promoted to the role of Managing Director.

Peter and his management team have successfully overseen the strategic direction of the company enabling it to become a key supplier in many markets, particularly the global automotive industry, revolutionising sustainable component design in the process.

I started at Luxus in August 1997 in the Blending department and have since progressed through to the Production Schedulers role, while still maintaining overall control of the Blending department. Before coming to Luxus I had mainly been employed in the bakery business from leaving school so my first day here was a big change for me. Away from work I like to relax and my wife Sandra and I can often be found wandering round local car boot sales! Favourite food - I love spicy Chinese food, especially curries.

I began my journey with Luxus in 2012 and continue to enjoy the daily challenges the job of an IT Developer brings. I love the continued learning curve of my role and there is nothing more satisfying than watching people benefit from something you’ve created. In the relatively short time I’ve been with Luxus I’ve witnessed the company go from strength to strength and I hope to play a small part in that for many years to come. Outside of work I love to get out and about, learning and seeing new things. I’m a big fan of the States and have travelled to Florida (a lot), New York and Washington. California is on my to-do list but next up on my travels is Bejiing!

Wednesday night is dancing night, initially forced into it by my lovely lady, now I enjoy it and pull-off a mean tango! My favourite place in the world is Sydney – it was meant to be a ‘stop off’ in my post-uni travelling but ended up staying for 1 year!
