Mercury Packaging rewards long service

20 January 2011

Mercury Packaging recently held a presentation to award three of its members of staff following long service with the company

Based at Kirkby-in-Ashfield in Nottinghamshire, the company, which specialises in printed bags, packaging film and re-sealable plastic bags, paid recognition to Melissa Fretwell and Robert Batkin, both of whom have achieved 10 years’ service, and Doug Perry Taylor on his retirement after eight years with the company.

Robert Batkin, who is Sales Manager for the publishing division, comments: “The past 10 years with Mercury have flown past. My role is such a varied one and the company is always looking to increase its presence in the food, security, publishing, fulfillment and retail sectors that there are constantly new challenges to motivate us all.”

Melissa Fretwell, who also clocks up a decade’s service with Mercury Packaging, works in Sales Admin, while Doug Perry Taylor is stepping down from his role as a Conversion Operative, after eight years with the company.

Comments Tony Stanger, MD at Mercury: “We aim to offer our staff the right training and incentives to help motivate them in their work. Hopefully these long service awards demonstrate the effectiveness of this policy and reflect a contented workforce at Mercury.”

Mercury Packaging offers a diverse range of printing capabilities up to 1250mm wide with 330mm to 750mm design repeat in up to eight colours. It allows printing and lamination to a broad range of material substrates including polypropylene (PP) and biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP). Speciality inks include metallics, light fast, pearlescents, high abrasion resistance, deep freeze, write-on and thermochromics.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
