Keith has enjoyed a stellar career in the thermoplastics sheet distribution market and is well known in the Industry both in the UK and Europe.

Keith founded Perspex Distribution Ltd within the Lucite International Group (LI) in 2003 and has been its Managing Director since then.  He has led an extremely successful business restoring Perspex’s major share of the UK cast acrylic sheet market and introducing other thermoplastic sheet products into the Company’s portfolio.

The financial performance of PDL has been market leading and exceptional.

In 2014 he was asked by LI to take over the management of the sheet production business in Darwen, Lancashire, in addition to PDL.  The performance of that business was outstanding under his 5 years of management.

Prior to joining LI in 2003 he had founded Amari Plastics Plc in 1975 within the Amari Plc Group, building that Company to be the market leader in the distribution of semi-finished thermoplastics in the UK.  He was Managing Director of that business from 1975 until 2001 and President of Port Plastics Inc, California from 1988 until 2001.  He left both Amari Plastics Plc and Port Plastics Inc in 2001 following a takeover of those Companies by an American private equity company.

He has held several Industry positions including:

  • Chairman of British Plastics Stockists Association
  • President of European Plastics Distributors Association
  • Director of International Association of Plastics Distribution.

Keith will be succeeded by Craig Dodson who joined PDL in 2003 and has been a Director for the last 10 years.
