Lee joined Tex Plastics from Nypro, a global moulding company based in Wrexham Wales, back in 2007.

To develop his career he moved to Nypro as Technical Manager and progressed to Global Project Manager, working with the European and American businesses on NPI, where he gained a reputation as a troubleshooter. His ability to solve complex moulding issues was what got him noticed.
