A new managing director has been appointed at Castle Cement’s Padeswood site in Flintshire.
 
Mike Eberlin, 44, will take over the cement works job following the retirement of Peter Weller at the end of February. He is currently commercial director of the company. 
 
Mr Eberlin said: "Peter Weller has built a business with the best assets in the industry, including the recent UK£64m investment at Padeswood. Castle’s challenge is now to consolidate this position and provide excellent service to our customers, thereby securing the long term future and profitability of the business. 
 
"Peter has also been instrumental in pioneering the use of alternative fuels in the UK and giving Castle the enviable position of being the lowest emitter of carbon dioxide per tonne in the UK. It is my role to continue this improvement and maintain Castle’s position as an innovative company that takes environmental performance and sustainability seriously."
