Metal recycler S Norton & Co’s board of directors has announced the resignation of Roger Morton as manging director of both S Norton and Axion Recycling.
Roger will leave his full-time employment from both companies on 28 February 2019. However, he will continue in a consultancy role, acting for both companies on a project by project basis over the coming months.
He helped to form Axion in 2001, and worked on the joint venture with S Norton in 2006. He was appointed as S Norton’s managing director in 2016.

Following his resignation, Axion will run as usual, with most of the staff who previously reported to Roger now reporting to Judith Clayman, who will become general manager.
Roger Morton said: “I am sad to be leaving my friends and colleagues at S Norton and Axion. They are both great businesses that are helping to save the planet by recovering vital resources for the future. I am privileged to have been part of this industry.
“I am particularly grateful to John, Charlie and Matt Norton for their vision, integrity and commitment in supporting Axion as it developed into a sector leader over the past 12 years. They deserve great respect from everyone in the industry. I know that S Norton and Axion will continue to grow and flourish under their leadership.”
S Norton & Co chairman John Norton said: “Axion is at the forefront of recycling plastic from end-of-life vehicles and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), thanks to Roger’s dedicated service, drive and enthusiasm. We are grateful for the changes that Roger has helped us to introduce at S Norton. I am sorry that Roger is leaving us and wish him well for the future.”
