Hello! My name is Adam Pointon, I’m 24 years old and I am the Material Science Graduate for Genuit Group plc and have been since September 2021. My responsibilities include researching, trialling, and managing sustainable material projects throughout our businesses. I studied Chemistry at the University of Nottingham with a passion for green chemistry and sustainability, which are passions that shine through in my job. At The Future Industry Group, I’m helping develop our schedule for 2023 where we are focusing on the development of our knowledge as professionals new to the industry and providing a network that is supportive and knowledgeable for our members.


 Beth Lillington (4.3) Beth Apperley

Hello, I’m Beth! I work for REHAU, as the Marketing & Communications Specialist for the Building Solutions division in the UK. I joined REHAU two years ago bringing with me many years of experience in a wide range of activities for both B2B and B2C marketing. Prior to me joining the plastic pipes industry, I worked for a construction product manufacturer where I developed a wider knowledge of the construction industry, in particularly routes to market and the supply chain. This gave me the foundations I needed to specialise into polymer pipework.


David Williams David Williams

I am Category Manager at Radius Systems.  My focus is in developing and launching new products to the water and gas utilities. A key part of this is understanding the key industry trends and as a new member of the Future Industry Group I aim to make new contacts in the industry and gain inspiration from different areas in the BPF. I am just into my second year at Radius Systems but have worked in the extrusion sector before as well as working in several other areas of construction. Product innovation and the environment are key areas of interest for me.
