Adam Buckland has been appointed as group managing director at Associated Packaging, part of the Eurohill Holdings group of companies.
Buckland took over responsibility as of January 1, 2010 from Brian Tibbals, who became group chairman on the same day.
Buckland has been operations director of Associated Packaging since 1992. Prior to joining Associated Packaging, he headed up account management of multinational organisations for a PLC in the computer industry.
Buckland said: “It is an exciting time for Associated Packaging. We are doubling our storage capacity at our main distribution centre in Tonbridge, while adding extra capacity for storage and distribution in the north and investing in our infrastructure. We have a number of new products coming to market over the next year - these will raise the bar for environmentally sensitive packaging within the marketplace.
“Brian [Tibbals] has been an excellent ambassador for Associated Packaging. During his period as managing director he has steered the group from a focus on the SME market to a position where our products are in every major retailer within the produce and supermarket sector. His skills and experience will be invaluable within his new role as chairman.”
