WPL’s leadership team, Gareth Jones, Andrew Baird and Simon Kimber, will continue to play key roles within the new organisation structure as senior managers, reporting to Tim Gaston, managing director of the Environmental Engineering Division.
Jones said, “Integration into a larger organisation with the resources and skills to promote growth, especially in commercial and industrial markets, promises to be a huge next step. It is a testament to the professionalism of our talented staff and the growth we have achieved to date that we have now attracted this attention and investment from Marlow plc.
