Janek Czerski MSc, Biography

Jan joined the Plastics Institute in 1968 and the Committee in the late 70s, becoming Chairman of MPG in 1993. He represented the Group on IOM3 Council until taking over the responsibility for the IOM3 Material Information Service (Polymers).

Jan is a long standing member of the PCN "brethren", the Polymer Society and the Manchester Polymer Group. He has recently joined GENPLAST , a Polish Plastics Consultants Group similar to PCN.
