Polypipe, the manufacturer of climate and water management solutions, has appointed a new managing director to lead one of its biggest divisions.

With 26 years’ experience in the water management industry, Steve Durdant-Hollamby will head up Polypipe Civils.

“I am very much looking forward to a successful future as part of the Polypipe family, and feel confident that I can continue to add to the impressive performance achieved by the company over the years.”

The former managing director of the water management division at Alumasc, who took the helm in January, also laid out his vision for the future of the business. He said: “We have great ambition to expand further using new techniques and entering new markets.

“Our goal is to realise unique end-to-end solutions that will inspire the next generation of engineers, architects and planners.”

Glen Sabin, chief operating officer of Polypipe Group, said Steve’s vast sector experience and expertise would enable the civils division to “further strengthen its market position as the go-to water management systems specialist.”

He added: “Steve brings with him a wealth of senior management and directorial experience. His entire career has been centred around water management, and the building and construction industries.

“I am confident that the team, complemented by Steve’s experience and leadership, is capable of continuing the development and growth of the civils business in both the core infrastructure and water management solutions market.”
