GB Plastics has appointed experienced building and maintenance professional Scott Calvert as Manager of the Banbury branch, and has also moved to new, larger premises at Unit 11 on the town’s Swan Industrial Estate.


The retailer and specialist supplier of quality low maintenance building products to the trade and DIY sectors, originally opened its Banbury branch more than ten years ago.


It first opened a trade counter in the town in July 2006, then moved to bigger branch premises on the Swan Industrial Estate in March 2013, and this year has moved again to the new unit nearby, in a move that further expands the range and support to local tradesman and residents.


Branch Manager Scott Calvert has worked in construction, building and maintenance throughout his career, most recently as Project Manager for Custom Build Construction Limited, which works for private and commercial clients, and local authorities.


In his new role with GB Plastics in Banbury, he leads a team of four experienced staff, to provide expert, technical advice and support to customers that travel from as far afield as Stratford upon Avon, Oxford and High Wycombe.


Calvery said: “GB Plastics is a really good, well established family business. The Banbury team has an excellent reputation for its knowledge and customer service, and have been supportive of me in this new role, as has the company’s whole team both regionally and at its Staffordshire head office.


“Coming from a life-long building background is of great benefit to me professionally, but importantly for all our customers. I am particularly enjoying the day-to-day contact with them and running the branch counter.”


GB Plastics has its head office in the company’s home town of Rugeley, Staffordshire. Founded in 1990, the second-generation family business has an annual turnover of £4 million and a network of trade counters and offices in key sites across the Midlands in Shrewsbury, Walsall, Banbury, Kettering and Oswestry.
