UK steel supplier Hillfoot has appointed Peter Morris to the newly-created role of purchasing director.

Morris has more than 20 years of purchasing experience within the industry and was previously managing director of Energy Alloys and director of Blencathra Industries.

‘We’re thrilled that Peter has agreed to return to Hillfoot, as we strongly believe he is the best person in the industry to lead our purchasing operation through what promise to be challenging market conditions next year,’ said Craig James, Hillfoot’s MD. ‘Our primary focus is on ensuring continuity of material supply to our customer base, at a time of increased global demand for engineering steel and the best quality mills look to remain on extended lead times for many commonly-used carbon and alloy grades.
