LATi Visit to Polypipe Civils

September 12, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm

LATi company visits are always extremely popular and we are delighted to be invited to visit Polypipe Civils in Loughborough on Thursday, 12 September.

Polypipe Civils Ltd is the UK’s leading manufacturer of drainage, sewerage, ducting and environmental systems to the utilities, construction, civil engineering, and agriculture industries. With over 20 years of experience Polypipe Civils supports its vast range of products with extensive technical service and the largest specialist sales force in the industry

The LATi visit to Polypipe Civils will include a talk and a tour and time for networking, eats and refreshments.

Note that everyone on the factory tour will need to wear sensible footwear.

During the tour you will have the opportunity to see very large diameter pipes in production and associated fabrication processes.

The LATi visit will be hosted by Neville Blowers, Operations Manager at Polypipe Civils. Neville has 30 years experience in the manufacturing and supply of polymer pipes. After leaving the forces, Neville found a factory job which is where he says his career started. He has held production supervisory roles at Polypipe Civils, leading teams in various direct labour disciplines, and has a particular interest in R&D, quality and the use of reclaimed and recycled materials.

Polypipe Civils introduced the Ridgistorm-XL product range into operations at Loughborough 8 years ago, and ever since then Neville has been responsible for the site operations and supply chain of the product range. The product range has effected near 100 people in a positive way, bringing to life value engineering on a factory floor.

Working closely with Loughborough Technical college and their apprentices, Neville embarked on a degree course studying Leadership & Management,  graduating in 2020.
