We are delighted to introduce our business improvement manager, Simon Boden, as we continue to invest in our management team here at Glossop Cartons.
Simon brings with him 35 years of packaging industry experience, most recently acquired as production director at Mayr Melnhof Packaging Iberica. As our business improvement manager, Simon will look to further improve operational efficiency, increase production capacity and reduce customer lead times. Alongside this, he will also be responsible for ensuring that processes are efficiency aligned with our wider strategic objectives.
Jacky Sidebottom-Every, joint managing director at Glossop Cartons, said: “As the business grows, both organically and through new business, it is vital that our production operation runs as efficiently as possible in order to continue to give our customers the highest quality products within increasingly competitive lead times. We are delighted to welcome Simon to our team as our business improvement manager.”
Simon’s appointment is part of Glossop Cartons’ plan to invest in its management team to enable further growth through the acquisition of additional industry expertise. In turn, this will allow joint managing directors, Jacky Sidebottom-Every and Brian Sidebottom, to focus on the overarching corporate strategy. Boden’s appointment follows that of operations director, Dave Bartlett, who was recruited last year.
Glossop Cartons has also recently announced a property expansion of over 50% following the purchase of a new 2,300m2 industrial building to allow the team to further improve operational efficiency and facilitate investment in new manufacturing equipment.
