Trading as KM Packaging Services ANZ (Australia-New Zealand), the business will help the UK-headquartered company grow its footprint in one of its most important markets.

KM Packaging has been supplying customers in Australasia since 1996. Outside of the US, it is the company’s second biggest export market.

“The move will allow us to explore new opportunities right across the chilled, frozen and ambient ready meal, convenience and fresh produce, and protein sectors,” said John Shipley, KM Packaging’s business unit director for the Australian and European markets.

Tammy Spencer has been appointed as KM Packaging’s business unit manager ANZ, based on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

Spencer most recently served as business manager – packaging and polymers with TCL Hofmann. She previously worked with Multivac.

“The establishment of the ANZ company and Tammy’s appointment allow us to provide local time zone support,” John said. “We now have a greater dedicated resource to offer KM’s wider range, site visits and provide an enhanced service to our customers ‘in market’.

Spencer said she was excited to take up the opportunity.

“KM has always had a strong reputation in the ANZ market,” Spencer explained. “Customers spoke highly of their service and quality, so I knew they were a business with a strong customer focus and core values that I admire.”
