As our standards and approvals manager retires, he has been awarded a Distinguished Service Certificate from the British Standards Institution (BSI).
Received ‘in appreciation of valuable contributions to the development of British, European and International Standards’, the certificate rounds off a successful career for Noel Taylor at Durapipe UK, spanning more than 35 years.
While Noel has held several positions here, including roles in technical support, sales and product management, he has been our standards and approvals manager for the last 20 years. In addition to ensuring our products are developed to the highest quality and adhere to the current standards, Noel has also been instrumental in developing a wide range of UK, European and International standards across a variety of product and market sectors.
Noel has chaired a number of BSI committees over the last two decades, where he has been responsible for monitoring, reviewing and advising of changes to more than 3,000 standards and acted as the BSI UK representative at European forums. Noel has also been directly involved with developing more than 300 new UK, European and International standards for plastic pipe and valves products.
Commenting on his recent BSI recognition, Noel Taylor said: “It is an honour to have been awarded this certificate from the BSI. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the BSI over that last 20 years and feel proud that I have been able to shape some of the standards and approvals the industry works to today.”
Our Commercial Director, Mitchell Holmes, added: “Noel has been a real asset to our team for the last 35 years. His ongoing commitment to quality has ensured that all of our products have been developed to the highest quality standards and comply with current standards and regulations.
“We are proud to set the benchmark for quality when it comes to plastic pipes, fittings and valves and the level and breath of third party approvals that we possess, which demonstrate the premium quality of our products, is down to Noel continually striving to ensure our products are the best they can be. We are delighted the BSI has also recognised the fantastic contribution Noel has made to the industry over the last two decades.”
