Antalis Packaging bolsters Northern presence

Antalis Packaging has launched a new packaging branch to serve growing demand within the Yorkshire region

The new branch launched by Antalis Packaging, which is based out of the companies' existing office and warehouse in Leeds, is headed up by Regional Packaging Company Manager Steve Marples, who has been with the business since 1997.

With a dedicated team of packaging experts on hand, for Marples the mission is to conquer the packaging challenges and alleviate the supply chain pressure-points that businesses within the region are facing.

As part of the move, Marples has recently recruited two new account managers to keep up with growing demand. This includes industry-expert Ben Oakes, bringing with him more than fifteen years’ of working in the packaging sector, most recently specialising in corrugated solutions and Stacey Allen, an experienced sales representative who, having started in sales at Antalis in 2017, was headhunted for the job.

With a newly strengthened team, the division is focused on its continued roll-out of the business’ Challenge initiative whereby businesses are invited to task Antalis to solve their packaging problems via a free Smart Audit. One of the expert team will then go and conduct a thorough audit of their premises and make recommendations to address any issues and improve efficiencies – with some customers seeing their packaging costs reduced by as much as 70% as a result.

Steve Marples, Regional Packaging Company Manager for Yorkshire, said: “This new branch opening means we are able to provide a much greater level of tailored, personal support to businesses in the region, providing access to a team of local packaging experts on their doorstep.”

“By working in partnership with customers, we can immerse ourselves in their warehouse operations and apply our expertise to help make a real difference to their bottom line. Whether through bespoke packaging solutions, warehouse optimisation or packaging automation, there is much we can do to help Northern businesses reduce their costs, cope with seasonal demand spikes and improve the efficiency of their supply chain processes.”

“After launching the division we have already helped lots of customers make a real difference to their bottom line but we want to help more – we would urge businesses to challenge Antalis to solve whatever packaging problem they may be facing by requesting their free Smart Audit or contacting one of our experts.”
