ROBERTS Mart & Co has made three managerial appointments as part of a multi-million pound investment at the firm’s Leeds-based production facility.
A total of 16 new jobs have been created as the company meets the “growing demand” for its packaging films.
Production manager Mark Sarjantson, assistant technical manager Jince Joy and quality manager Paul Melia have joined the business. Additionally, John Ambler has been promoted from process engineer manager to extrusion production manager and Tony Rymer becomes print technical manager after seven years as shift manager.
William Roberts, Roberts Mart’s managing director, said, “The company is growing rapidly. These new appointments and the changes to our managerial team will drive the business forward and help it remain at the forefront of the flexible packaging industry.”
The family-run business invested £2million in new equipment including a BOBST 20SIX Flexo Eight Colour Printing Press, Nordmeccanica Super Simplex Laminator and Proslit Slitter Rewinder.
