Boddingtons has boosted its UK sales and marketing force with the appointment of Chris Philpott to the team.
Chris’s primary role will be the sales of the manufacturing services now offered by the company’s new £4.6m state-of-the-art injection moulding plant in Marden, Kent. The new Boddingtons facility was formally opened by Lord Digby Jones on November 1st, 2016.
Managing Director Andy Tibbs says that ‘Chris is a time-served engineer and has a wealth of expertise to offer our customers; particularly in high-value medical and technical moulding markets where we place considerable emphasis on the creation and delivery of technical files and supporting regulatory documentation. With Chris’s help Boddingtons is greatly looking forward to further boosting our sales and marketing performance in these areas, through 2017 and beyond.’
Chris adds that ‘I am delighted for this new opportunity within the company. I am a customer focused individual – used to being the first point of contact for internal and external customer requests. I am experienced in building long term relationships in the service of the partnership approach and for the needs of modern-day engineers and manufacturers.’
It has been a busy Q4, 2016 for Boddingtons; winning 2016 Processor of Year at the Plastics Industry Awards (PIA), opening its new manufacturing facility and exhibiting at the prestigious Compamed show in Düsseldorf two weeks later.
At the new factory launch Lord Jones praised the Boddingtons team for its ‘amazing new manufacturing facilities’ and for the company’s forward thinking and strategic investments in plant, people and technology.
The advanced moulding environment at Boddingtons now includes; expandable Class 7 cleanrooms, reducing bioburdens and particulates; white room(s) with less fibres and contaminants, disaster recovery safeguards and many other customer benefits.
