ELANDERS has appointed a business development manager to work from the firm’s new Scottish site.

Graeme Leslie will be joining the print and packaging business at its Scottish division, Elanders Packaging. The new 17,500 square foot premises in Bellshill, which is three times bigger than the company’s previous site, boasts new digital print and luxury finishing equipment for packaging and labelling.

Graeme has over a decade’s worth of experience in the Scottish whisky and drinks industry. He has also worked in the contract packaging sector where he gained experience in gifting, promotional packaging and fulfilment. More recently, Graeme has worked in luxury and premium bespoke packaging, helping customers develop creative and innovative packaging products for gifting, promotions and campaigns. He said, “I am looking forward to contributing to and developing tailored print and packaging solutions to clients in the drinks industry, which I know inside out.”

Chris Hewitt, managing director of Elanders UK added, “We always aim to be one step ahead in our sector and we are taking it to the next level with new equipment and expertise. Our new site in Bellshill means we can expand our offering and purchase new cutting edge machinery to sit alongside our existing kit, offering our customers more choice. Graeme’s in-depth knowledge of the whisky and drinks industry will be extremely valuable to the already experienced team and clients alike.”
