Robert Scott appoints head of procurement

Robert Scott has appointed Darren Williamson as its new head of procurement. Darren joins the business from safety supplier Arco, where he was product and procurement manager, for its cleaning and hygiene and workplace safety categories. He brings more than 30 years’ procurement experience to his new role and will oversee the ongoing purchasing of all the business’s requirements, leading on expanding its range of sustainably sourced and manufactured cleaning products and equipment to support businesses in reducing their environmental impact.

Darren Williamson said: “I’ve always admired Robert Scott - it’s a great family business that I wanted to be part of. With almost a decade of experience in cleaning and hygiene procurement, my plan is to continue the great work the team is doing and build on its extensive range of products, as well as looking to add new, innovative products with a particular focus on sustainability and environmental credentials. I’m very much looking forward to helping to take the business forward.”

Alastair Scott, sales director at Robert Scott, added: “Darren joins the business at an exciting time. We’re investing considerably in innovation to bring new products to market that will help businesses clean efficiently and effectively in ways that are better for the environment. Introducing more reusable and recyclable items is a key area that we’re currently looking into, and we want to ensure the ways in which we source and manufacture these products have positive sustainability gains too. Darren’s extensive experience and knowledge of procurement for the cleaning and hygiene sector will be a fantastic asset for the business to lead the team as we look to expand our ranges to support customers.”
