Glossop Cartons is delighted to have won an award for its commitment to manufacturing at the recent North West Entrepreneur of the Year (2016) awards.
The prestigious accolade is awarded to companies who have made a longstanding commitment to manufacturing excellence and business practice.
Sales Director Jacky Sidebottom-Every has picked up the award on behalf of Glossop Cartons following her success in spearheading the ongoing success of Glossop Cartons by investing heavily in new machinery, including a world-first state-of-the-art cutting machine which has streamlined its production process.
Jacky has led the company’s commitment to developing ground breaking technology within the business which in turn has enabled the company to flourish in recent years.
Glossop Cartons, which is led by Managing Director Brian Sidebottom and a team of three sisters – Jacky Sidebottom-Every, Vicky Every and Jill Woodacre, has grown from a small start-up in 1984 with just a handful of employees, to a thriving market-leading packaging company employing almost 100 staff.
The award follows a busy year for the company after it acquired Contact Print and Packaging in November 2015 and relocated from Padfield, Derbyshire to Contact’s modern facility in Stockport. As a result of the company strengthening its credentials within the food and pharmaceutical packaging market, most recently adding an AA graded BRC Packaging Accredited award to its quality assured achievements, the business has recently taken on a number of new contracts at its headquarters in Reddish.
Glossop Cartons Marketing and Commercial Manager Vicky Every comments: “We’re absolutely thrilled to pick up the Manufacturing award and feel this is testament to joint efforts of the management team and to the challenges that we have overcome together in the last few years.
“Glossop Cartons has always strived to be the best in all areas of our business, from our manufacturing processes through to the unrivalled support that we offer our customers and the training that we provide for our staff.
“We’re passionate about manufacturing innovation and as a company, we will always strive to offer our customers faster and more efficient processes. Winning this award is a really wonderful way to celebrate the success we have enjoyed in the past few years.”
The 2016 North West Entrepreneur of the Year Awards ceremony was held on the 3rd November at Mere Golf & Spa Resort in Knutsford, and brought together over 500 of the most successful business leaders, corporate advisors and investors in the region to celebrate entrepreneurial success.
