CROYDON, ENGLAND — Simon Robinson is the new editor of Urethanes Technology International magazine.

Urethanes Technology International is a Croydon-based sister publication to Plastics News.

Robinson has a long history in polymer industry journalism. After graduating at Manchester Metropolitan and gaining his degree in polymer science & technology, Robinson started his career at Crain Communications in 1987 as assistant technical editor for Urethanes Technology and European Rubber Journal. He then moved to Emap where he spent nine years as materials editor on Plastics & Rubber Weekly and later became editor of Chemistry & Industry, the publication for the Society of Chemical Industry.

Since 2004 Simon has been with ICIS — part of the Reed Business Information Group — with a range of positions including deputy editor and on-line editor for publications including ICIS Chemical Business and European Chemical News.

"We are very excited to bring Simon back to Crain as we are sure his knowledge and experience will prove highly valuable to UTI but also to the Croydon business as a whole," Publisher Steve Crowhurst said in a statement.

Robinson replaces Liz White, who resigned in early December after more than 20 years at Crain. She will work with Robinson during a brief handover period.
