Patrick Weerd Group Procurement Director at Schoeller Allibert

We are delighted with the start on 1 January of Patrick Weerd as Group Procurement Director at Schoeller Allibert.

Schoeller Allibert has been the European market leader in “Returnable Transit Packaging” for industrial use for more than 60 years. The company has originated from several important players such as Schoeller, Wavin, Perstorp, Arpa, Linpac, Allibert, Paxton and Stuck.


Schoeller Allibert invests heavily in sustainability.  At the moment, 25% of all material is already being reused and this will grow to 50% in the coming years.  Procurement and sourcing for reusable materials plays an important role in this. For example, one of Schoeller Allibert’s major international beer brewers states that all their crates consist of 100% recycled materials. Thanks to a strong commitment to R&D, Schoeller Allibert is market leader when it comes to innovation and sustainability.

Patrick started his career at Biesterfeld, followed by a position as business planner at Johnson Diversey. He then spent 5 years at Heineken in the procurement of plastics. Since 2011 he has grown to a senior level in procurement at Akzo Nobel, where he was a member of the Global Sourcing Leadership Team.

The step to Schoeller Allibert is an ideal way for him to further professionalise Procurement, with more involvement in commerce and business.

We wish Patrick and Schoeller Allibert a wonderful start in the new year.
