National Plastics Appoints Three Regional Operations Managers

The UK’s largest independent trade counter network, National Plastics, has plans to open 17 new stores by the end of 2017, bringing its total number of stores to 50. To reflect the scale of its ambitions, the company has just appointed three regional operations managers, Bradley Edmonds, Simon Edmonds and Alex Linnell, to help manage the growth on the ground.

National Plastics’ Managing Director, Geoff Foster, said: “As we continue to expand it’s important that our infrastructure grows with us so we can continue to offer exceptional service to our customers. Our regional operations managers form a vital part of that infrastructure and we’re delighted to welcome Bradley, Simon and Alex to the team.”

Bradley Edmonds, who is Regional Operations Manager for the North and Midlands, joined the company in February. Simon Edmonds, who covers the South West, joined in August. Alex Linnell, who covers the South, joined in July. All three have extensive experience in large chain environments – Bradley at Halfords, Simon at Screwfix and Alex at Argos – and all three are keen to use that experience in a rapidly growing business.

The three are also delighted with the culture they’ve found at National Plastics so far.

Bradley comments: “The company is very ambitious and has exciting plans but at the same time we’re encouraged to think outside the box and to run with our own ideas – it’s a very refreshing approach.”

Simon agrees, saying: “I wanted to work somewhere I could make a difference and be part of something exciting. I’m encouraged by the company’s openness to new ideas.”

Alex comments on the tight-knit nature of the team, saying: “I was interviewed by Geoff Foster and Paul Brough, the Managing Director and the Operations Director respectively, and it was great to feel I was being valued at such a high level in the company – it wasn’t an interview experience I was used to. I love the ambition the company has and I love the freedom I’ve been given to help us achieve it.”

National Plastics is renowned for being a one stop shop for the trade. Its range covers everything from drainage to roofing and everything in between. Products are available at all price points, so there is something for every project, no matter what its scale. It’s a business model that has proved very successful: the company has grown substantially in the past five years, adding £9 million to its turnover.

Appointing three regional operations managers is undoubtedly a statement of intent and reflects the company’s determination to achieve sustainable, scalable growth while still maintaining its distinctive brand identity. So if you don’t already have a National Plastics store near you at the moment, you can be sure there will be one soon!
