Dartington Crystal's Warren Gell appointed non-executive board director of Made in Britain

Made in Britain has appointed three new non-executive directors to its board, as it marks 10 years of growth: Warren Gell, global commercial director of Dartington Crystal; Katy Moss, managing director of Trent Refractories; and Henry Beaver, chief executive officer of Beaver Bridges.

They join existing Made in Britain board members Prof. Chris Harrop OBE, ESG strategy director of Marshalls (and Made in Britain board chairman); Camilla Hadcock, owner and director of Roach Bridge Tissues; and Peter Atmore, head of global sales and marketing of Fracino.

Made in Britain is a trade association representing close to 2,000 SME manufacturing businesses across the UK. Members enjoy licensed use of the Made in Britain registered collective mark, which shows clients, consumers and shippers that they can trust that a product is of truly British provenance and has been made to the highest manufacturing standards.

Members also receive support across exports, sales, marketing and PR via information services and events; feature in a searchable Product Directory used by consumers and procurement professionals to source British-made goods; and have free access to the organisation’s Green Growth sustainability programme developed specifically for manufacturers.

Board Chairman Chris Harrop OBE said: “In the tenth year of the Made in Britain initiative, we are delighted to welcome to the board three outstanding individuals, who represent the innovation, ambition and resilience of the UK manufacturing sector today.

“The last decade has seen the Made in Britain Mark become a well known and well loved symbol of high quality and British provenance, and our organisation is committed to becoming a yet more influential voice for manufacturers in the years ahead.”

Warren Gell commented: ““Having worked within British manufacturing for over 20 years, I have seen how developing, designing and manufacturing products in Britain positively develops local economies, sustainable growth, people’s careers and environmental benefits. I love to see products throughout the manufacturing process and being able to talk to the people with the skills and knowledge in making them. We at Dartington Crystal Group are proud members of Made in Britain and I welcome the opportunity to be an ambassador for the marque.”
