Mercury Packaging, a leading UK packaging printing firm has seen significant growth over the last 12 months, in part due to the acquisition of food bag manufacturer Certiforms.

Despite rising material prices and ever tightening margins, we have managed healthy growth over the past 12 months

Increasing demand for security, food, retail, fulfilment & publishing markets for high quality flexible packaging printing leads to £1 million new business pipeline

Following a significant restructure of its commercial and production operations and acquisition of food bag manufacturer Certiforms, Mercury Packaging Printers is reporting a 15% increase in sales over the past 12 months.

In addition, the leading European flexible packaging specialist looks set to repeat this success with a £1 million new business pipeline for 2011.

As part of the recent changes, Mercury Packaging has promoted Ray Franks to Sales Director responsible for driving growth across all the company’s key target markets including food, fulfilment, security packaging, publishing and retail.

Food packaging printing expert Mark Binks heads up the former Certiforms business whilst Chris Stanger has been promoted to Production Director.

Tony Stanger, Managing Director at Mercury Packaging comments: “Despite rising material prices and ever tightening margins, we have managed healthy growth over the past 12 months. Renewed focus and vigour from a strengthened senior management team has also helped ensure a pleasing sales pipeline for 2011. The security packaging sector in particular is looking promising for this year.

“The sales increase can in part be attributed to the Certiforms acquisition which has added a new market to our portfolio, but we have also continued to invest in best of breed equipment for added capacity, and the press has started to earn its keep,” he continues.

Tony concludes: “Streamlined production processes and lean management techniques have also played a role, as well as the company’s commitment to working closely with customers to ensure innovation, quality and value.”
