Dave Bartlett brings with him nearly 40 years’ experience of the packaging and print sector, joining from Trenton Box where he was also operations director. Previously, he was plant director at Contact Print and Packaging, where he worked for 25 years, and the assets of which Glossop Cartons acquired in 2015.

In his new role, Bartlett is responsible for directing operations, driving the efficient, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manufacture and delivery of orders. He also ensures that members of the production team are highly motivated and fully-trained, enabling them to achieve their full potential.

His appointment is part of Glossop Cartons’ wider plan to invest in its management team in order to enable the company to achieve further growth via the acquisition of additional industry expertise, and allow joint managing directors, Jacky Sidebottom-Every and Brian Sidebottom, to focus on corporate strategy.

Bartlett’s appointment follows that of new sales director, Wayne Fitzpatrick, who was recruited last year and handles some of the company’s key accounts, which span food and drink, vape and household, as well as pharmaceutical and personal care. Between them, Bartlett and Fitzpatrick have over 60 years’ experience within the industry.
