UNTHA Grows in the UK

Rob Andrews has joined UNTHA UK as sales manager for the north.

The move sees his 21-year career coming full circle with a return to the machinery sector, where he will once again deliver transformational change for clients.

Perhaps most well-known for his role as material manager at Stobart Energy, Rob has a wealth of board level experience. He has been at the forefront of the RDF, SRF, and biomass markets since 2012 – particularly when it comes to European trade – and was the first UK biomass operator to import recycled fibre into the country under TFS regulations. In more recent times he also specialised in the conversion of niche complex wastes, which saw him design and build the UK’s first processing plant to handle LDPE contaminated blood plastics.

Andrews will be responsible for the development of application wide turnkey UNTHA shredding solutions, for customers throughout the north of England and Ireland.

Elaborating on his career to date, Andrews said; “I am truly passionate about using my engineering acumen to drive change within the resource environment. My contractual and commercial experience encompasses everything from pre-sales technical design to operational deliver, not to mention the long-term optimisation of processing lines and market opportunities, to maximise return on investment.

“I have run UNTHA equipment for a number of years, so I believe I have an almost unique perspective when it comes to interpreting customer requirements, and helping them build their business case for a system,” continued Rob.

UNTHA UK’s managing director Marcus Brew added; “To recruit someone with Andrew’s level of strategic experience is a real coup for UNTHA UK, but at the same time reflects the ambitions we have as an organisation.

“From supporting disruptive environmental start-ups to some of the world’s most high-profile blue-chip brands, we’re here to change the face of what’s possible within the resource sector. Whether organisations come to us with only a glimmer of an idea – or even a waste challenge that they think cannot be solved – we are here to work that through with them.

“Andrew’s knowledge of ongoing plant optimisation – long after the sale – ties in perfectly with our company values, and I look forward to seeing the difference he’ll make to UNTHA’s existing and future customers, in 2021 and beyond.”
