Law to retire from Lonza

3 February 2021

Lonza Wood Protection’s marketing manager, David Law, is to retire at the end of April after almost 36 years with the business. His role at Lonza will be filled by Amanda Chesson, who was previously in a similar position within the British Woodworking Federation.

Long-term Lonza customer Severn Valley Woodworks said Mr Law had been “a fantastic servant to the industry”.

“So much of the impact of marketing is difficult to quantify,” said David Twigg, Severn Valley Woodworks director. “But, fundamentally it’s about communicating with your customers in a language they understand and David’s skills have facilitated this to an extent where companies have enjoyed success and kept people in jobs – he has made a big difference.”
