Wim’s retirement from HS Butyl

News | February 20th, 2020

Today marks the retirement of Wim van Gelderen from HS Butyl.

With over thirty years of service in our industry including thirteen years working for the Hodgson family at HS Butyl.

Wim joined Hodgson Sealants as part of the acquisition of Scapa Tapes and the Lymington facility.

Despite this big change for Wim his attitude and passion for butyl tapes and sealants have given our business a hugely positive profile in Europe where he has provided excellent service to our customers.

He has made a very valuable contribution to the continued growth of our business and always approached any challenge with a positive mindset.

From personal experience, I know how his excellent relationship with our customers has been invaluable over the years.

I am sure you will all join me in wishing Wim well for his new adventures after butyl tapes!
