Under this remit he was responsible for the international procurement of recycled plastics, low- and high-grade goods, packaging, and additives. He also realised and implemented the internationalisation of purchasing both within and beyond Europe, for instance by planning and organising trade fairs whether as an exhibitor or an observer. Prior to this, Ralf Twellenkamp worked at Possehl Erzkontor GmbH for 15 years, where he held various positions in the areas of purchasing, accounting and sales.

‘I am very much looking forward to the new challenge at the PB Group, and to working with such an experienced and committed team,’ says Ralf Twellenkamp . ‘The Group has developed into a leading provider of recycling solutions for plastic waste in recent years, and I am convinced that we will achieve our strategic growth targets together and that with my experience I can make an important contribution to the continued success of the PB Group.’
