Due to a burgeoning order book and increasing interest from a variety of industry sectors for its quality labelling equipment, Advanced Dynamics has boosted its sales force with the appointment of Tom Smith.
Tom took up the post of Sales Manager in early November and has already closed a number of orders for Advanced Dynamics, a leading supplier in the packaging industry which recently celebrated a decade in business.
The company is the UK distributor for renowned global labelling machine manufacturers such as Pack Leader, Köra-Packmat and Eurokett, as well as supplying cutting edge sheet counters made by B.Matic, a range of equipment, coupled with its reputation for after sales service that is second to none, which attracted Tom to the role.
He said: “I have known Advanced Dynamics for many years and when this opportunity arose, I knew, with the ethos of the business, the positive attitude of the guys and the future plans of the company along with the obvious merit of proving a Lancashire lad can shine amongst a Yorkshire crowd, that this was the role for me. It’s a new challenge and one that I can’t wait to get my teeth into; my aim is to increase sales and help the company to continue to prosper.”
Investing in its workforce is part Advanced Dynamics’ strategy for expanding its equipment portfolio of specialist wrapping, labelling and feeding solutions in industries such as food, drinks, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, toiletries, printing and other related sectors.
Managing Director, Malcolm Little, says: “Tom brings with him great character, drive, invaluable industry experience and his appointment is a further commitment to the company’s mission to break into new markets, providing customers with the best expertise to go along with a range of cost-effective automated solutions to improve their production efficiency, quality and costs. I also look forward to the challenge seeing just how the Red Rose fairs in the White Rose arena.”
He added: “I’m sure Tom will enjoy a long and successful career at Advanced Dynamics. As the company grows we need high calibre staff to match our high quality equipment and Tom fits the bill perfectly. He will drive sales, enabling me to ensure that the company is achieving its goals and objectives in all sectors.”
Advanced Dynamics’ growth strategy has seen its workforce steadily increase over the years and the business now employs 11 people at its facility in Staithgate Lane, which has also been expanded to include a mezzanine and a permanent 800 square foot exhibition site for showcasing the impressive line-up of the company’s extensive specialised equipment.
In addition to offering labelling systems for applying labels efficiently and accurately every time – freeing staff for more productive tasks – Advanced Dynamics has recently launched new affordable technology for the de-stacking of pots and tubs for filling of soups, stews and sauces.
Advanced Dynamics can also supply shrink sleeve solutions which can be customised for almost any container, providing advantages such as increased space for brand identity and on-shelf impact, as well as practical functions like protective security seals and tamper proof packaging.
