It’s perfect chemistry at TMAT

TMAT has recently welcomed Dr. Ken Kendall, Polymer Chemist, to its team.

TMAT’s new Product Development Manager will be responsible for developing new products and value-engineering existing ones. With an Honours degree in chemistry and a PhD in polymer science from Manchester University, Dr. Ken Kendall’s accreditation will afford TMAT greater strength and protection with its intellectual property.

Dr. Kendall will build upon TMAT’s existing core competency in polyurethane chemistry and enable higher excellence in research and development of new products. Dr. Kendall said: “We can react even faster to our customers’ need for innovative and cost-effective products for new market opportunities”.

With a wealth of experience in technical roles in the polymer industry Dr. Kendall will surely be an excellent asset to the TMAT team.

“I believe TMAT has a strong “can-do” attitude deriving from its mixture of skilled workforce and visionary management team”, commented Dr. Kendall

Jason Lippitt, MD said: “Dr. Ken Kendall has made a fantastic addition to our team here at TMAT and we are all very excited to see how he helps TMAT progress to the next level of product research and development”.
