Bruce Margetts, MD of Bericap and the newly elected president of the British Plastics Federation

Bruce Margetts, the managing director of Bericap in the UK, has been elected as president of the British Plastics Federation in succession to David Hall.

Margetts worked with the Autobar Group and RPC prior to joining Bericap. His career at RPC progressed from operations manager to general manager in RPC Containers and in 2012 he was appointed RPC injection moulding cluster manager. Latterly, he was regional director of RPC Superfos UK Region. He joined Bericap as managing director in 2016.

Margetts has previously served with the BPF as chairman of its plastics and flexible packaging group. He has also been a long-standing member of the BPF Council as well as the strategy and finance committee, being appointed vice-president in 2016. Notably, he helped guide the BPF’s evolution of the BPF’s climate change agreement for plastics, BPF Energy.

The new BPF president said: “The BPF’s priorities are very close to my heart — in particular the great need to develop key skills built along a clear structure to increase interest and the appeal of the plastics industry as a rewarding career path for an individual.”
