Apr 16 2024

Puraffinity, which develops precision technology for the removal of PFAS ‘forever chemicals’ across multiple water treatment applications has appointed Pete Weaver as its Chief Operating Officer.

Pete joins Puraffinity from digital printing technology provider Domino Printing Sciences where he was Group Fluids Operations Director responsible for Domino’s global fluids manufacturing operations, including plants, in the UK, US, India and China. Prior to that Pete worked for Philadelphia headquartered FMC Corporation, now one of the leading global agricultural sciences companies, in the UK, USA and China 

At Puraffinity, Pete will be responsible for developing the manufacturing and supply chain functions, ensuring the company has robust supply chains in place to deliver its products to customers when and where they need them.

“I am excited by the opportunity to work with Puraffinity’s talented and dynamic team as we push forward towards solving one of the world's major sustainability issues - PFAS contamination of water,” said Pete Weaver. “I want to use my skills and experience to ensure we not only provide our customers with exceptional levels of quality, safety and customer experience, but we also deliver some lasting good for the planet.” 

Pete Weaver has a BEng in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering from the University of Birmingham and has experience across all aspects of operational management including manufacturing, engineering, supply chain and logistics, R&D, Quality and Health Safety and Environmental management.

“With the ongoing market pull for more renewable high performing adsorbents to tackle PFAS, we recognise we need to develop an efficient and effective manufacturing system,” said Puraffinity CEO Henrik Hagemann. “Bringing Pete into Puraffinity fits perfectly with this key need and Pete stood out as a hugely people focused manufacturing expert who can accelerate our operational excellence across the company. We're thrilled to have him on board.”

“It was clear Pete cared about joining a business that has an environmental focus and a mission he believes in,” said Sally Kennard, Puraffinity’s Talent and People lead. “Throughout the interview process, Pete demonstrated a strong focus on achieving results whilst being very people focussed.  He is aligned with our values and brings expertise in manufacturing, supply chain and logistics and we are confident he will make a real impact on our company goals and culture. We are delighted he chose to join the Puraffinity team.”
