Welcome to our updated website and to the page that gives you an insight into some of the people you will be speaking to and communicating with. As for myself, I have now been at Seevent Plastics for over 10 years and have overseen the development of the company to almost double it’s size. Every member of staff is proud of the products we produce and our core statement that the customer comes first is stronger now than it has ever been. I do hope you enjoy the website and the experience of doing business with us.

I joined Seevent Plastics in November 2019, its a great company which is investing and growing year on year. I feel like I have been here for years and guess that’s down to the welcome I received, everyone’s been so helpful and I feel lucky to be part of a strong team. I’ve been in manufacturing since I left college in 1983, initially in Production and moving to sales almost 17 years ago.
When I’m not working I enjoy football, having played semi-pro and I am also a closet Man Utd Fan. I also enjoy the odd round of golf, socialising with family and friends is a must and getting away on holiday at least once a year has got to be on the agenda.

I joined Seevent Plastics in June 2022. In the short time I have been here I feel like I have always been part of this team, they have made me feel welcome from day 1. It’s a fantastic company with a great team who’s ethos is delivering the best service and products for their customers.
I started my career within the industry with a packaging merchant in 1987, then moving into the polythene manufacture sector in 1993 working and visiting all parts of the country dealing with many diverse businesses, seeing many changes and innovations within the industry over the years.
Out of work, spending time with my family is very important to me. I have a love of sport, particularly Golf and Cricket which I still play to this day, more pleasing as my son has also taken up these activities, sadly being much better than me. I also have a love of DIY, so always thinking of my next project.

I joined Seevent Plastics 1st April 2019 having worked in the polyethylene packaging industry since 2001, developing and growing along the way. We have an excellent team of people here at Seevent with many years of experience in their respective fields.
In my spare time I try to keep fit using my spin bike and the gym, and if the weather is nice like to get outdoors. I also enjoy chilling to a good book.

Before joining Seevent in June 2018 I spent many years working in a variety of roles, from Project Managing for an ISP company in London to Teaching in children’s homes across West Sussex and other positions in between. Since starting at Seevent I have enjoyed the challenge of learning all about a new industry for me and have been helped along by a great team of colleagues.
When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, enjoying a pint with friends every now and again and being outside, enjoying the sea and the countryside here in beautiful West Sussex.

I joined Seevent in 2014 and since joining my role and responsibilities have grown to accommodate Seevent’s growth. Working alongside a great team makes Seevent a great place to work. It would be nice to say that I don’t do any finance work in my spare time but that would be a lie! My husband runs his own Company so many weekends are spent doing his accounts!! When I do get some time off, I enjoy girlie shopping trips with my daughter and my son is a prisoner to the craze that is Xbox!! My ‘me time’ is attending a mini trampoline fitness class twice weekly which is so much fun and a great way of keeping fit.
