About our Section

The North West Section host a series of events ranging from technical paper evenings with keynote speakers, to industry site visits across the region. Our popular Christmas lunch takes place the second week of December and is a great opportunity to network with colleagues from across the industry.

Our committee meets bi-monthly and is keen to hear from anyone who would be interested in getting involved. Please send an email to the address above.


Paul is responsible for a small compliance team working from Birstall with two other locations and supports the wider group. The business holds numerous accreditations which are essential for future growth. His responsibility is to ensure the operational teams work to high standards which are set by our stakeholders and business managers.
