Mark Nykiel has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Vinidex, the leading supplier of pipe and fittings systems to the plumbing, civil, mining, irrigation, gas, hardware, rural, energy and infrastructure markets. He replaces Colin Weatherstone who is retiring after four and a half years with the company, during which time Vinidex became part of the Aliaxis global group.

Says Nykiel: “Col has been instrumental in the Aliaxis acquisition of Vinidex and expanding Vinidex’s footprint in Australia. Col is a strong supporter of the Plastic Pipe Industry Association and is the current chair of the peak body.”

He adds: “I’m a strong supporter of Australian manufacturing as a competitive advantage for our customers across all our industry sectors. This local know-how and capability provided by our Vinidex team, combined with our footprint and resources backed by the global capability of Aliaxis, brings significant advantages for our customers.”

Nykiel was previously MD of Australian pipe-fittings manufacturer Philmac. Before joining Aliaxis in 2013, he held a variety of senior executive roles in the Australian building products, construction materials and mineral processing sectors. He is also closely linked with the water industry through his role at Philmac and previous responsibilities at Vinidex.
