Geotextile chief retires

WarwickwebBob Warwick, managing director of GEOfabrics, retired at the start of this year, although he continues to consult with the company on on-going projects initiated by him.
Mr Warwick spent 17 years with GEOfabrics, having originally been recruited by Heckmondwike FB (now National Floorcoverings), one of the UK’s largest carpet manufacturers, to establish and manage a unit to manufacture needlepunched geotextiles.
This involved commissioning a state-of-the-art line and then growing the new business. The products were launched in the UK market in 1993 and have subsequently become the UK’s class leaders for landfill and coastal engineering applications.
He repeated the exercise in 2001 with a manufacturing line for geocomposites. At six metres wide, this line is thought to be the widest in the world for laminating textiles, nets, grids and membranes.
Prior to his time at GEOfabrics, Mr Warwick spent time with Don & Low, ICI Fibres, Terram and Tarmac Construction.  Source NonwovensLive.com
