Ken Holroyd

Materials Testing and Process Consultant – 07780 667174

Ken leads Test-Tech’s UK independent paper, plastic film, and packaging testing lab. Here we offer consulting on materials testing and process analysis, specialising in the paper, plastic film, and corrugated packaging industries.  Ken is a member of the BSI Committee for methods of test for paper, board and pulps, enabling clients to benefit from in-depth knowledge of test and measurement to international standards.
