Filplastic targets North and Midlands with expanded sales team

Published:  28 July, 2015

Racking specialist Filplastic has bolstered its sales team with a host of new appointments.

The Yorkshire-based company is targeting potential clients in the North and Midlands by recruiting business development managers Gary Winter and Tony Corrigan.

To support the new recruits, the company has also taken on sales assistants Georgie Tooke and Karen Feasby who will work from the company’s head office in Eastrington, East Yorkshire. Sarah Costello has also joined the accounts team and is based at Filplastic’s head office.

Mr Corrigan brings more than 30 years’ experience of the materials handling sector to the company, having worked for some of the industry’s biggest names. He also spent six years as a self-employed consultant, supplying process management software to the warehousing and logistics industry.

Hailing from Cheshire, his patch covers the North West and North West Midlands including Lancashire, North Wales, south to Stafford and east to the Pennines.

Mr Corrigan said: “Filplastic is very focused on the customers’ requirements no matter the size of company or the size and value of any enquiry or project. The emphasis is finding the right solutions for the customers needs, and in my experience that leads to much more satisfactory outcomes.”
