Richard Woolff

Plastic and Acrylic has now been part of my DNA for 3 generations. I joined the business in 1989 and I love what I do and love that everyday, I am faced with a different challenges. Sometimes it feels like I am reinventing the wheel everyday as yesterday’s solution is often not today’s solution. I love the challenges that my clients entrust me with to solve and meeting different people from a wide range of different disciplines.

He has steered the company through periods of plenty and periods of drought, a visionary in his field and has never shied away from trying a new technique or coming up with a new way to solve a problem.
