Rigid packaging specialist RPC Group won the coveted Processor of the Year at this year’s Plastics Industry Awards (PIAs), held on 24th October in the Hilton on Park Lane in London. Awards judges said RPC “had shown considerable ambition in the past 12 months and backed up its strategic goals…with acquisitions and a clear focus on what was needed to take the business forward, including the establishment of its training academy”. Hosted by comedian and TV presenter Al Murray – aka the Pub Landlord – this year’s black tie awards night was a sell-out, held in front of 800 guests. In all 17 awards recognised the achievements of a wide array of industry talent and initiatives on the night, including designers, processors and suppliers, as well as youngsters working to make their mark in the plastics sector.
This year’s ceremony featured a brand new category, Best Recycled Plastic Product of the Year, won by Logoplaste UK and Ecover for The Ocean Bottle, made with plastic waste fished out of the sea.
The Personal Contribution to the Plastics Industry award was won by former British Plastics Federation director-general Peter Davis. See the full list of winners here
