Affinity Packaging, a large and small format printed carton manufacturer headquartered in the North West and with additional operations in London, is proud to announce the creation of a new senior leadership team. The new line up brings together a group of seasoned industry professionals who are focussed on driving innovation, growth and excellence in packaging solutions.
Jerry Corcoran, appointed as Managing Director in 2022, is joined by Andy Tranter (Sales & Marketing Director) and Sarah Bevan (Finance Manager). Also Lynda Cookson, who led a major upgrading of the main site over the past year, has been promoted to Production Director. Jerry comments: “I’m thrilled to have such a high quality team around me. Andy, Lynda and Sarah have a huge amount of experience from both inside, and outside, of the packaging market and they will have a very positive impact on the business”.
Affinity Packaging has recently undertaken a series of major investments in both equipment and people. “As a BRC AA grade manufacturer, Affinity Packaging is uniquely placed in the UK packaging market” says Andy Tranter. “We have both large and small format printing in both UV and conventional inks here at Leyland, plus digital printing at our London site, meaning we can service our customers full portfolio very competitively across the entire country”.
 Jerry adds:
“Affinity Packaging has been around for over 120 years and we still have the appetite to do things differently – we love nothing more than being challenged by our customers to innovate and have a competitive offering across their carton portfolio. I want to extend an open invitation to customers new and old to get in touch to find out how we can use our experience to make your packaging the best it can be irrespective of whether you are an existing carton user or looking to move away from plastic for the first time”.
