Polypipe was given a royal seal of approval last week during a visit by HRH the Princess Royal.

Polypipe, which manufacturers of piping solutions, underfloor heating and energy efficient ventilation, was given a royal seal of approval last week during a visit by HRH the Princess Royal.

The Princess was escorted on a guided tour of one of the FTSE 250-listed multinational’s manufacturing sites in Doncaster, Yorkshire, by Polypipe Chief Executive, Martin Payne, Chief Operating Officer, Glen Sabin, and Polypipe Building Products Managing Director, Cameron McLellan, on Friday, February 22.

Other dignitaries included Doncaster Central MP Dame Rosie Winterton and Andrew Coombe, Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, who co-ordinated the event with Buckingham Palace to showcase the town’s business successes.

The 85-minute visit included seeing Polypipe’s market-leading training and moulding facilities in action, and a talk on the history of the business and its sustainability objectives.

Her Royal Highness also unveiled a plaque to commemorate her attendance before she was handed a bouquet of flowers by McLellan’s daughters, Charlotte, 12, and eight-year-old Isabelle.

Payne said: “We are naturally delighted to have welcomed the Princess Royal to our site. She spent time chatting with our staff, learning about our training facilities and our use of cutting-edge technology.”
