New sales director for Midland Regional Printers
Midland Regional Printers Limited has announced the appointment of Matt Seaford as sales director from 1 January 2020. Matt joined MRP in 2006 as trainee before taking on the roles sales executive and sales manager in 2018. Throughout the 14 years with the company, Matt has focused on identifying new markets and opportunities, increasing new business within labels and carton packaging, plus handling key accounts with many household names and FMCG brands.
‘I am honoured, and it is an exciting time at MRP,’ commented Matt. ‘We have a great team and we have listened to our customers and responded with investment in a mounter to produce printed corrugated cartons plus a new digital label machine arriving within weeks, we are offering more services to more markets and I am ambitious to grow MRP.’ Matt’s recent success came from converting companies from single use plastic packaging and redeveloping this to be plastic free by using biodegradable cardboard. He commented, ‘Some items were an easy transition to board although heavier products like door handles and locks kept our design team occupied for several days to find the final solution.’
