George Ratcliffe COO INEOS Hygienics 

 

George graduated from Bath, Politics with Economics, in 2013. He joined INEOS, a family business, when he left in 2013, moving to Grangemouth & Aberdeen to work for INEOS O&P for 5 years. After that George moved to London to work as a Gas Trader (propane, butane, ethane) in Canary Wharf, before moving to INEOS’ central London office. After 3 years of trading, George moved back into the core of the INEOS business to run INEOS Compounds, a PVC Compounding business. Two years after, when the first wave of the pandemic came to the UK, George started INEOS Hygienics, and INEOS Healthcare business, using INEOS manufactured raw materials, Ethanol, IPA, to produce more than 4 million bottles for free to the NHS and European hospitals, of sanitiser. Since then, INEOS Hygienics has become a global brand, within 1 year, being sold throughout the UK (Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Ocado), and equivalents across Europe & the USA.
