TH Plastics' expanded team
TH Plastics has recruited an additional five members of staff in what it says is response to growing demand for its ancillary solutions after a 50 percent increase in turnover.
The Glossop, Derbyshire-based firm has taken on two new field sales engineers, sales representatives for the south west and south east of the country, as well as an office administrator.
“2014 was an incredibly strong year for us, with a 50 percent increase in turnover, and our expanded workforce has its work cut out for 2015. We are already mid-way through several major contracts,” explained Lee Thomas, TH Plastics’ Managing Director. “We have also built a strong reputation for customer service, which includes 24/7 technical support and is second to none.”
The company attributes some of its recent growth to the boom in the automotive sector, which accounted for 40 percent of its sales. It also cites the health of the manufacturing sector in general, with many customers requiring new solutions designed to facilitate larger outputs, as well as to replace old systems.
“Energy efficiency remains a big issue in the plastics manufacturing sector, as companies strive to minimise energy consumption and emissions while increasing production capacity. All of our solutions are designed to enable customers to maximise energy efficiency,” Thomas added.
