Kitchen and bathroom manufacturer Moores has promoted Richard Bywater to Head of Supply Chain.

Bywater previously was Procurement Manager. He will still be based in the company’s Wetherby head office and will report to Finance Director David Richardson.

Bywater’s career at Moores spans 25 years. He first joined the company in 1993 as a Temp in Assembly. Since then, he has undertaken several roles at Moores and within the MASCO group, which was the parent company of Moores until its management buy-out in 2017. These roles were based in quality assurance, procurement and vendor relations.

He left Moores in 2007, working in a variety of roles including supply chain, consultancy and sales, and re-joined in 2015.

He said: “I am delighted to be given the responsibility for shaping the direction of Moores’ supply chain and look forward to working closely with the already strong supplier base we have in place.”
