New appointments for expansion at The Alternative Pallet Company

Sep 17 | 2017

The Alternative Pallet Company has increased its core staff to support business growth plans resulting from the popularity of its PALLITE® range of paper pallets and honeycomb-cored products.

The company’s team will increase by eight people over the coming months with key focus on production, sales, quality and marketing. In July the company announced the following new staff additions:

Matthew Marks, Quality Manager, has over four years of quality and environmental management experience in the packaging industry. He will make sure that the PALLITE® brand is environmentally sound and fully compliant in all areas of the business

Stephanie Leigh, Marketing Manager, has strategic marketing expertise and industry experience and will take the lead on new initiatives to strengthen the PALLITE® brand.

Alex Farrell, Business Development Manager, has over four years’ experience in the transport and logistics industry and a thorough understanding of supply chain management. Alex aims to introduce the innovation behind the PALLITE® brand to her extensive network and others within this sector

Martin Martin, Business Development Manager, has worked in service and product-related industries for over 30 years in both sales and management roles. He brings valuable experience to the company and an understanding of modern business practices.

The company says that with these new team members in place it has a sound foundation from which to implement its extensive sales and marketing strategies. All this comes on the back of a very positive close to 2016 and with forecasts for 2017 onwards showing a growth path for the company.

It does not stop there however, as following its winning of the Northamptonshire Logistics Awards 2017 – Innovation Award, the company is finalising the purchase of new machinery that will further enhance its offering to both current and potential customers.

Patrick Mulhall, Managing Director, commented: “At a time when there is so much focus on austerity, we are proud to be a creative UK manufacturer that is looking to expand. When you combine a quality product with a focussed and energetic team, and continued investment in both people and equipment, it means it’s exciting times for PALLITE®.”
