The Materials Handling Engineers Association has announced another key speaker for BULKEX16, the event aimed at professionals, organisations and academics from across the bulk materials handling industry.
Philippe Frenay will join BULKEX16 from Aggregate Industries where he is Managing Director, UK and Overseas.
His presentation will be a highlight of the two-day event, when it takes place at Harrogate International Centre on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 October.
Aggregate Industries’ Philippe Frenay is the latest key speaker to be announced. He joins Martin Downey, Bulk Terminal and Operational Engineering Director at The Bristol Port Company, with other industry speakers set to be announced.
Philippe joined Aggregate Industries in 2011 and has specific responsibility for the Aggregates Divisions in the UK and Overseas.
Part of Aggregate Industries is Glensanda Quarry, a super quarry situated on the banks of Loch Linnhe on the West Coast of Scotland. Glensanda produces high quality crushed granite to markets all across Northern Europe, from washed sand through to off-shore armour material. It stocks over £3million of equipment and has three active workshops to ensure the smooth running and efficiency of the quarry.
Philippe has extensive experience within the construction materials industry, having worked for Aggregate Industries’ parent company Holcim since 1990.
Prior to that, he has held various similar positions in Ready-Mix, Cement and Aggregates in Belgium, Netherlands and the North of France.
Philippe’s experience extends across executive and general management, mergers and acquisitions, business development, change management, marketing and sales and logistics in the construction industry in Europe.
MHEA Chairman Michael Kaye said: “We are delighted that Philippe has agreed to give a presentation at BULKEX16, which is shaping up to be a great event.
We are looking forward to learning from Philippe’s considerable experience and wealth of knowledge and we greatly appreciate the time he is taking out of his busy schedule to share his thoughts and ideas.”
This year a new Speaker’s Corner will bring the programme of leading industry speakers into the exhibition hall, where more than 50 exhibitors will be showcasing their products and services.”
