During my search, there was one name that kept cropping up, Matthew Knight. A good industry reputation can make you an attractive asset to anyone in the plastics sector, but a good attitude and being a likeable guy was also a big factor. Since starting, Matt has immersed himself in the world of TH Plastics and I look forward to seeing this continue’’
