Peter Lewis In 1995, Peter Lewis founded Adeloo with the objective of specializing in large outdoor events in addition to construction. As he grew his company, he became involved with the PSE. In a 2012 interview with the BBC, Peter states that "2012 will be a record year for us in the event marketplace. We will be working with others to provide 14,000 portable units for the 2012 London Summer Olympics and several thousand more units throughout the year for several Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations for her 60th year since her coronation." Peter Lewis was also in attendance at the 2015 PSAI international meeting. He was not only interesting to talk to but quite a comic as well, along with his counterpart Martin Murdoch! The United Kingdom Martin Murdoch and Portable Sanitation Europe (PSE) Martin attended the PSAI meeting in Germany in 2015 and he shared valuable and interesting information about the industry from his perspective. We enjoyed meeting him and learning about his involvement in portable sanitation and his involvement with the PSAI throughout the years. Martin joined our industry in 1988 as the manager of Site-A-Loo, one of the UK's first portable restroom companies. As a result of sales and marketing roles in various parts of the world, he saw that a strong industry association was needed. PSE was a trade association that was founded in 1992 as a division of the Hire Association of Europe. Martin's vision was to form a new and independent association that would exclusively serve the needs of operators in the portable sanitation industry. In 2000, Martin Murdoch formed the PSE that we know today. Through his leader- ship, this association also became an Ordinary Member of the World Toilet Organization. PSE continues to be a valuable asset to both members and the industry at large. Through Martin's efforts, the PSE has working relationships with the PSAI, the BDE, and among other similar organizations throughout the world. In 2010, he joined Sara Plast Pvt Ltd, located in India, and served as the Chief Operating Officer with his primary objective being to success- fully provide the units and service of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi. Upon leaving Sara Plast, he returned to the UK and served PSE as Spokesperson. He also continued his consulting work. Today, Martin Murdoch serves as an industry consultant through the name of "Portable Sanitation Consultancy." He is a knowledgeable resource in our industry on a worldwide level. Peter Booth Peter founded Elliott Loohire Ltd in 1992 and built the company on exceptional customer service and high-quality standards. He also served as a Director of the Hire Association of Europe.
