Philip Tyler, left, formed the company in 1973 after working for Michael Stevens Ltd, a recycling company set up by his brother-in-law.

A statement from the company read: “Over the next 22 years and as business expanded Phil developed a much younger team who are now are all directors of Philip Tyler Polymers Ltd.

“On his retirement in 1995 he concentrated on his favourite hobbies of sailing and gardening. His wife Nancy predeceased him but he leaves a son and two daughters.”

John Leslie-Smith, Tyler’s nephew and director of Philip Tyler Polymers, said: “Philip was a man of great integrity and his business ethic, even more than his pioneering role in the industry, is the legacy of which I think he would be most proud.”
