Bruce Hendon heads up Plater Group and founded Plater Chemicals in 1980. Developing strong relationships with chemical manufacturers across Europe, China, India, South America, Russia & the Far East means we import industrial chemicals directly into our warehouses at Ellesmere Port, Glossop, Ipswich and Goole, for direct distribution to customers across the UK & Ireland.
