Alutrade have appointed Paul Mason, as their Business Development Manager, who has been working within the metals/recycling industry for more than 30 years.

Paul joined the Oldbury-based company at the start of last month (February) as their Business Development Manager, a position that had been held by Shaun Ford for more than three decades.

Sadly, Shaun passed away at the end of last year, and Alutrade wanted to find somebody equally as talented to replace him and continue all of the excellent work he’d carried out for them for the last 30 years.

Paul has joined Alutrade Higgins Balers, where he worked for over three years. Prior to that, he worked for HA Mason (Metals) Ltd, Metal & Waste Recycling and Sims UK. His previous roles include Contract Manager, Non Ferrous Operations Manager and Sales Manager.

“To have a ‘man on the ground’ and first point of contact for merchants is vitally important, and I’m extremely pleased to be that person,” explains Paul.

“It’s great to be part of the Alutrade team. Having dealt with them as a customer in the past, I know how highly the company is regarded within the trade. Hopefully, the coming months and years will see many of our new suppliers feeling the same way and reinforcing Alutrade’s industry-leading status.”
