Goodbye Bill – after 25 years at sign specialists Wrights Plastics

Goodbye Bill – after 25 years at sign specialists Wrights Plastics


General Manager William (Bill) Porter, one of the longest serving employees at Wrights Plastics, has retired.   

He first joined the retail display and sign specialists  as Office Manager in 1971 when there were just four employees, headed up by John Wright, father of current MD Mike.

Bill’s dedication contributed to the speedy growth of the company but after ten years he decided to go it alone and set up a manufacturing base in Brierley Hill specialising in Point Of Sale and display items and later became an agent for Wrights Plastics, selling bespoke products. Eventually Bill rejoined the organisation following the acquisition of GPX Plastics.

MD Mike Wright said that Bill has been close to the family for a long time – first helping his father establish and grow the business then supporting him when he came to take over the reins. “Everyone in the company will miss his commitment and dedication. We wish him a long, healthy and handicap-reducing retirement.”

Bill’s children and grandchildren live in Ireland and Australia so travel will be a feature of his retirement – but rumour has it that there may also be a round (or two) of golf to keep him fit and active!
