TrakRap appoints two managers

After securing a seven figure Northern Powerhouse funding deal, TrakRap is investing in future growth with two new key appointments.

The Skelmersdale based sustainable packaging specialist has appointed Steve Crane (pictured above) as business development manager. He is tasked with winning new sales opportunities and introducing the firm's low carbon secondary packaging system to organisations in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry.

Steve has held engineering and sales roles at companies in the packaging industry for more than 30 years. He joins TrakRap from packaging machinery manufacturer Adpak, where he spent 20 years as the company’s area sales manager.

Amy Clark has joined as packaging projects manager from corrugate giant Saica, where she spent three years as a design engineer.

At TrakRap, Amy will help deliver innovative and cost-effective packaging solutions to the company’s wide range of food and drink manufacturing customers, managing packaging design projects from conception to production.

Martin Leeming, CEO of TrakRap, said: “Since securing more than £1m in investment through a Northern Powerhouse funding programme, we’ve been looking for the perfect candidates to grow our team and enable us to expand the business, so we’re delighted to have Steve and Amy on board.
