Specialist coatings and flooring systems manufacturer, Liquid Plastics Limited (LPL) announce that Mr Lionel Gorick, chairman and joint managing director has been awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours list for his services to the plastics industry and to the community of Preston, Lancashire.

For well over a quarter of a century, Lionel (age 72) has been a leading figure in the development of plastics based surface coatings for the building and construction industries. He established Liquid Plastics in Preston, in 1963, taking as a foundation plastics-based technology emerging from the USA in the immediate post war years and developed a range of roof and external wall coatings.
