Growing nationwide demand for its wide range of high quality flexible packaging products aimed at the food, mailing, magazine publishing, retail, security and fulfilment markets has prompted Mercury Packaging to open a new regional sales office in the North West.
Based in Macclesfield, the satellite facility is headed up by Tim Holland who is tasked with significantly boosting sales of Mercury’s flexible packaging solutions with particular focus on the food industry including the bakery and fresh produce sectors.
As well as the new office and manufacturing plant and head office at Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, Mercury has sales representation in the East, South East, South West, Midlands and North East.
Bolstered by significant recent growth and the acquisition of wicketted bag specialist Certiforms, this expanding regional sales network is a clear indication of Mercury’s ambition to meet the flexible packaging needs of companies within all its key target markets.
Tony Stanger, Managing Director, Mercury Packaging comments: “Over the past year we have seen a significant increase in turnover with substantial new customer wins from all over the country. In order to support our continued focus on growth, strategic operations and productivity objectives we’re delighted to establish a new sales office in Macclesfield.
He continues: “Having regional sales representation at key locations has enabled us to move to the forefront of the UK packaging scene and sends a powerful signal to the entire market, and more importantly to existing and potential customers.”
Established in 1999 and currently celebrating its ten-year anniversary, Mercury employs over 50 people at its site in Kirkby-in-Ashfield. With the recent acquisition of Certiforms, it now boasts an annual turnover of approximately £6.2m.
