Katie said: “I am delighted to be joining Taylor Packaging. It has a fantastic reputation, and the company is continuing to grow from strength to strength. I am excited to be joining a forward-thinking, dynamic team.” 

With over 16 years’ administration experience in a manufacturing environment, Michelle will be bringing her considerable experience to further strengthen the team. Michelle’s main duties will include generating orders and raising quotations as well as providing customers with exceptional service and assistance.  

Commenting on her appointment, Michelle said: “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work for Taylor Packaging, the company has a professional and flexible working environment and an impressive portfolio of clients. 

“There’s a real family atmosphere within the company and I am really looking forward to being a part of that.” 

Adam Taylor, managing director at Taylor Packaging, said: “I am delighted to welcome Katie and Michelle to the team. They are enthusiastic team members who share the friendly and customer-focused mindset that Taylor Packaging is renowned for.” 

In addition to the two new appointments, Taylor Packaging is looking to grow its warehouse team to provide additional support to its team who are operating across two sites.
