Paul Jones FRSC is the owner and Managing Director of Bitrez Ltd and Anacarda Ltd. He is also the founder and owner of Chemical Processing Services Ltd. All three organisations are highly successful businesses concentrating on the design and development of speciality polymers.
Paul has been responsible for the development of groundbreaking new products that have been recognised with two separate, consecutive Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for innovation (2018 and 2019), an iChemE global award and an array of supplementary awards for innovation, leadership, and supplier excellence.
Paul was listed in The Manufacturer Top 100 2020 (innovator category) and has received international success and recognition due to the innovative approach he takes to market demands and the resolution of problems. In 2020 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
With the introduction of GHS (globally harmonised system of classification and labelling of chemicals) by the United Nations, and REACH in Europe – now closely followed by the UK-REACH regulations – the demands for innovative, compliant products grew and continues to grow rapidly. Many organisations were forced to either completely withdraw, phase out, or rationalise their product range.
Paul embraced the challenge presented by these regulations and developed products that allowed compliance with the new stricter guidelines, as well as business continuity for a wide number of customers.
Paul has developed products formulated for compliance with the UN Sustainability Development Goals and has started licensing technology to allow the supply of low free monomer products in North America.
