His working career has seen him develop expertise within a myriad of industries such as uranium mining operations (Utah Wyoming), nuclear power plants (Toronto, Canada), oil/gas pipelines (Australia) and home insulation (Australia). In addition, he has been CEO of companies that constructed the largest and fastest super computer, constructed and operated plastic recycling, advanced polymer recycling, and polyurethane foam sorting and recycling.
Running the various businesses was not the only role Garry performed, he was also the innovator that designed the operations that enabled the various technology to solve recycling issues with plastics and polyurethane (PU) foam.
A man with such vast talent, vision and experience has many career highlights. After having formed Carrington Plastics, Garry achieved a world first by recycling polyisobutylene (PIB) and proving it was financially viable. He built the world’s first polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) recycling plant in Melbourne Australia. Here it was demonstrated that the plant could economically remove the PVDC from co extruded plastic film. The next career highlight came as CEO and owner of Advanced Polymer Recycling Incorporated, Mexico there he oversaw the construction of the largest Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant in Latin America (Mexico City) which can recycle up to 10 million Coca-Cola bottles a day. As CEO of Regen Foam Hong Kong and Royalty Carpets, Garry was the person behind the building of the first automated PU foam sorting plant in Southern China. This was followed by a most challenging PU Foam carpet underlay plant retrofit in Nevada, USA. This required the installation of state-of-the-art foam recycling technology and ensuring that it worked effectively in the existing facilities.
