Turnbull & Scott Managing Director Joins Picon Council



We are delighted to announce that our very own Peter Murphy (Managing Director) has been invited to join the Picon council. Picon is the leading industry trade association representing manufacturers and suppliers to the Printing, Papermaking and Paper Converting sectors. The council will meet five times throughout the year to discuss the plan and direction of the trade association.

Peter will represent the British Paper Machinery Suppliers Association, a specialist division of Picon which provides a wide range of technical expertise relevant to the papermaking process, allowing for a clear independent voice for UK-based suppliers. The British Paper Machinery News publication is circulated to paper mills worldwide.

Talking about Picon’s role in the pandemic, Peter said, “There has been a mixed impact with exporters hit hardest by travel restrictions but overall the industry has been pretty stable. The networking opportunities provided by Picon have been essential to helping members change business models through collaboration with others.”

Peter and two other new members join nine others who are currently serving on the Picon council.
