A recycling industry figure has been named as one of 30 Industry Champions of the Make it in Great Britain campaign.
Eco Plastics managing director Jonathan Short is one of 23 new champions that takes the total to 30. He joins people from companies such as Microsoft, Ford, Nissan, GlaxoSmithKline, Rolls Royce, BAE and others in promoting a campaign that aims to transform the image of modern British manufacturing and to raise awareness of its importance to the economy.
The campaign is being run by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
Jonathan Short said: “I am delighted to champion the Make it in Great Britain campaign and feel it is important that the recycling industry is represented. We don’t just make quality, innovative products in Britain, we re-make them once they reach the end of their life.
“As a nation, we face a significant opportunity to continue developing a modern recycling infrastructure that sits at the heart of a green economy and is the envy of the world.”
