Tullis Russell based in Markinch has announced the appointment of Steve Moss as Managing Director of their Papermakers division in Fife.
Mr Moss, pictured, brings considerable senior experience to the role having occupied similar positions in other UK manufacturing organisations including Mondi Packaging UK and the BPI Group. He will report to Group Chief Execuitive Chris Parr who previously held the same job within the employee-owned company.
Commenting on the appointment, Chris Parr expanded: “ Steve will be an extremely valuable addition to our established executive team and his experience will help us to drive through and deliver our clear and focused strategy. He is joining us following some of the most challenging times ever faced by the UK paper industry and, while there are many more challenges ahead, we face them with a firm idea of where are going and a strong balance sheet to help us get there.”
The company is currently working in partnership with RWE npower renewables who will build and operate a £200m biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant at their Markinch mills. This will reduce the company’s fossil fuel carbon emissions by around 250,000 tonnes each year and help support their leading position as an environmentally friendly producer of boards for the cards, covers and premium packaging markets.
