Former Managing Director passed away after short illness

BMRA is very sad to announce the passing of Paul Johnson, former Managing Director of BMRA member, Phoenix County Metals Ltd. 

Paul passed away peacefully on 1st April after a short illness.

Paul retired in December 2018 after more than 38 years at Phoenix, having begun his career with the company as a production technician before working his way up to Managing Director. The reins were handed over to his daughter, Jo Johnson and niece, Lucy Tee, keeping the family tie very much alive.

Over his 38 years, Paul enjoyed many events with people across the industry, particularly at his beloved Northampton Saints, and with Johnson Matthey at Newmarket Races.

He will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered by all his family, friends, colleagues and customers.

The Board and Secretariat of the BMRA passes its condolences to Paul's family and friends.
