TrakRap Makes Key Appointment Following Investment
We’re delighted to announce that we have appointed Graham Fox as Business Development Manager after a significant investment enabled us to expand our operation.
Graham has more than 23 years’ experience across a wide variety of roles in the packaging industry and was most recently employed as Sales Manager for shrink-wrap specialist Marden Edwards Shrinkwrap, a role he held for almost six years.
At TrakRap, Graham’s role will involve identifying prospective sales leads and introducing the company’s innovative end-of-line packaging system to customers to support our ambitious growth plans, which have been boosted by a £1.27 million investment secured recently through a Northern Powerhouse funding programme.
The TrakRap system is a low carbon, low plastic alternative to shrink-wrapping that uses a 100% recyclable stretch film to wrap products for transit for manufacturers of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods supplying supermarkets and retailers in the UK. The system reduces users’ carbon footprints by as much as 70% through lower CO2e emissions and significantly reduces plastic and energy consumption.
Graham said: “TrakRap’s low carbon, end-of-line machinery is raising the bar for packaging companies that are serious about saving the environment and I’m delighted to play a part in its growth.
“The opportunity to join such an innovative, forward-thinking business was impossible to turn down and I am looking forward to helping customers increase efficiency and add value to their organisations by reducing plastic waste and CO2e emissions.”
Martin Leeming, CEO of TrakRap, said: “Graham’s in-depth understanding of packaging systems and the packaging industry in general will be a huge asset for us and will help us massively reduce the carbon footprint and cost of packaging for food and drink manufacturers supplying the UK’s major supermarkets.”
