Tony Jones - Founder of AWJ Plastics Consulting

Tony commenced his Plastics Industry career in 1983, selling ETP’s to the UK Injection Moulding sector with Whitfield Plastic Compounders. At the time, they were the leading ETP compounder in the UK, and a distributor of PC, PA, PBT and ABS for Bayer, as well as a “toll” compounder of POM for Celanese. His European Plastics Industry understanding and knowledge was then developed during a 4 year consultancy spell with CDC (Corporate Development Consultants), including successful project management and completion of the first pan –European multi-client studies on both the PP and ETP compound markets. Following a business development role with leading UK “Telectronics” moulder , Plastic Engineers , in the early 1990’s , Tony returned to Sales Management with the specialist PA compounder , Plastex , before joining Applied Market Information ( AMI ) in 1993. In an 11 year career at AMI, as Head of Client research, he pioneered the consulting company’s early studies and research of the Central European Plastics Industry, as well as managing major market research projects in the late 1990’s for polymer manufacturers seeking to enter the emerging, but fast growing markets in Asia (particularly China). During the 2004-2006 , Tony also spent 3 years as Commercial Manager at Chem Polymer, who at that time were the UK’s leading independent PA compounder who are now owned by the US diversified material science company, Teknor Apex. In 2007, when back at AMI, he researched and published a successful and well received multi-client study of the European PA market, in addition to managing a strategic review of the largest 50 technical compounders in Europe. In 2008, Tony set up AWJ Plastics Consulting and since then, where required to fully meet client needs, he has also networked with associates around the world who have complementary skills and experience within the Global Engineering Thermoplastics Industry. From Q4 2015 until Q1 2018, Tony was also Associate Director –Engineering Plastics – for PCI Wood Mackenzie.
