Peter Fitzgerald, Strategic Development Director at UK glass manufacturer, Encirc, is retiring following more than 17 years with the business.

Peter joined Encirc as Sales and Marketing Manager in November 1997, when the company was still in its infancy and before production had even began.

He has played an integral role ever since, assisting with the development of a second site in Elton, Cheshire, UK and helping expand the business, which currently owns a third of the UK glass market.

Peter explained: “Retiring from Encirc was a huge decision for me. Watching the business grow into the substantial entity it is today has been a fantastic experience, and one that I’ll struggle to walk away from. I can only wish the team the best of luck for the future and look forward to seeing what I’m sure will be a continued success story.”

Adrian Curry, managing director at Encirc, added: “As a business, and as individuals, we are incredibly proud of and thankful for the support that Peter has provided during his time with us. We wish him a long and happy retirement.”
