Vernon Hills, CEO


President/ CEO

In 1988 I became involved with PolyJohn as a customer.

I was Sales Director of one of the largest portable toilet manufacturers in the world based in the United Kingdom

After examining a number of U.S. restroom manufacturing companies we approached PolyJohn to be their European Distributor.  The product range and quality were excellent but most importantly Ed Cooper and his team went out of their way to develop a relationship with us which has lasted for over 25 years.

In 1992 Ed Cooper approached me to join him in forming a new Distribution Company to develop sales on a International basis and we became business partners.  A new company was formed PolyJohn International limited based in the United Kingdom.

We grew the business throughout the world by opening our own warehousing facilities or appointing distributors in over 30 countries

Our aim was to give our customer a personal service and used the motto “There when you need us”.

This has been the core success of our business growth and we now say at PolyJohn “The only thing that lasts longer than our products is our relationships”.

We have a dedicated team of people who travel extensively throughout the world to meet our customers first hand.

In 2001 PolyJohn International opened a joint venture company in Brazil to grow the South America market.

In 2013 we opened a new “state of the art” manufacturing facility in Rio de Janeiro to further develop PolyJohn’s presence in the region.
