LPR Announces Two Senior Promotions
La Palette Rouge (LPR), a division of Euro Pool Group, has signalled its commitment to investing further in customer and sales support by announcing two key senior promotions.

Joe Hebblewhite has been promoted to commercial manager, while Gary Anderton has been appointed interim AOS manager, as the European-wide logistics specialist focuses on an ambitious programme of growth.

The new appointments come as LPR restructures its sales and account management teams to maximise the services it provides to its client base.

Hebblewhite, who joined the company in 2014 as business development manager, will be responsible for commercial development and a team is being built to support him in his objectives. His promotion comes after his successful contribution to LPR’s growing relationships with a stream of new blue chip organisations within the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector.

In his new role as interim AOS manager, Gary Anderton, who joined LPR in 2012 as customer account manager, will continue to focus on developing the company’s existing customer relationships and will look for new ways of maximising the support it offers to its current clients.

He said: “We pride ourselves on providing a value-added service to all our customers and work hard to understand their specific needs. The restructure of the sales and customer support teams is allowing us to focus even further on providing each of our customers with the individual support they need.”

Hebblewhite added: “As a dynamic and progressive company, LPR is always looking to grow its market share with the most recognisable names in the FMCG sector and is proud to be offering simplicity in pricing and the most reliable outsourced solution available. LPR is upping the ante by continuing to provide excellent customer service and I’m looking forward to the challenge of leading a new team to find fresh and innovative ways of supporting our customers.”

Adrian Fleming, managing director, LPR UK, said he was keen to promote within the existing LPR team to develop talent and to invest in its employees, as well as develop its customer support programmes.

“We have long been committed to investing in people, facilities and processes and this new strategic approach of proactively focusing on sales and customer support means we will be in the perfect position to innovate in this most competitive of sectors,” he said.

“Joe and Gary have a wealth of sector knowledge and we are confident that, in their new positions, they will continue to play a significant role in the growth of LPR.”

LPR delivered 62 million pallets across Europe in 2014, rising from 53 million in 2013. This is expected to grow further in 2016 due to a number of new contract wins with high profile blue chip FMCG manufacturers, including Nestlé and Kellogg’s.

In 2015, expansion saw the company move its UK and Ireland headquarters to a new base in Studley, Warwickshire, and make strategic new appointments to boost its UK and Ireland performance. LPR now has over 40 personnel in the UK and Ireland.

KM Packaging Quick Off The Blocks With Senior Double Hire
KM Packaging Services, international developer and supplier of innovative food packaging solutions, has made a racing start to 2016 with the appointment of two new senior members of staff, John Shipley and Nigel Down as business development manager and technical services manager respectively.

Between them, John and Nigel bring over five decades of experience in the packaging sector to KM’s highly skilled team. Taking over responsibility for some existing UK and export customers, John will also help to grow the business internationally. John has particular experience in film and pouch conversion for FMCG markets across Northern Europe which will support KM’s ongoing growth in these sectors, especially in the development of pre-made pouches.

Nigel has joined KM’s team to provide technical support to the company’s sales team and its customers, with particular focus on new product development and applications. Previous roles have helped Nigel to hone his expertise in lidding film, retort laminates and pouches on both research and commercial sides of the fence.

KM Director Charles Smithson explained: “Both John and Nigel were attracted to KM’s extensive product portfolio and especially our reputation for a technically-focused approach to global markets, and we are delighted to add their expertise to our team. KM is constantly investing in new product innovation; John and Nigel’s significant combination of commercial experience is already impacting positively on KM’s development programme and we can’t wait to see how their input will enable us to make the most of new opportunities going forward.”

KM Packaging is constantly investing in new technologies and flexible packaging solutions. The company’s experience and commitment to rapid turnaround mean that it can meet demand for both high volume orders and also fast delivery on short-run seasonal products. For more information about the company and its vast range of flexible and reliable packaging solutions, please visit the website www.kmpackaging.com or call +44 (0)1832 274944.

Senior Ishida Appointment Strengthens MEA Support
Ishida has appointed Jeff Say as General Manager for Africa in addition to his existing responsibilities as General Manager for the Middle East, to support and grow the company’s presence throughout the MEA region.

Mr Say heads up Ishida’s specialist teams, based in Dubai and Johannesburg, which provide full sales, service and technical back-up for Ishida equipment and installations.

Jeff has widespread experience of the packaging industry. Prior to joining Ishida as Sales Manager, Middle East in 2012, he spent 10 years in a number of international sales roles with Longford International.

“Jeff’s promotion is a key part of our strategy to further grow our business throughout the MEA region,” comments Mike Heffernan, Core Business Sales Director.

“His experience of both Ishida and the wider machinery market has already been invaluable in the success of our Middle East operations and he will now bring the same expertise to the African countries, supporting our existing customer base, developing bespoke solutions for new installations and identifying opportunities in a number of emerging sectors of the food industry.”
