Paul Newson has passed away following a seven-year battle with cancer

Saniflo and the SFA Group UK have honoured former managing director Paul Newson, who has passed away following a seven-year battle with cancer.

Paul Newson actually began his career in the kitchen industry, working in the marketing department of Hoover, before he moved into the export department of Black & Decker.

In 1979, he masterminded the launch of Saniflo UK and spent over 30 years building the brand, and macerator sales, in this country.

Managing director of Saniflo UK, Tim Pestell said: “Paul created this business from nothing in the UK – developing an unknown concept and product into the success it has become today. Not only was he a shrewd businessman, but a kind and humble man who always managed to bring out the best in others. He is greatly missed.”

He leaves behind a wife and daughter, and the funeral took place on February 4, in his local town of Amersham.
