The opportunity to continue the growth and take the company forward is very exciting for the whole team and of course is very challenging however we all welcome and rise to the challenge.
“Our growth has been driven by our innovative approach, in particular the introduction of the eSack system last year. We’re going to build on this success and, by working closely with our customers, we will extend our offer and product range so we can meet a wider range of their needs.
“Underpinning the sustainability of our growth are our relationships with our customers. David Garcia put them at the heart of our philosophy which will continue under my leadership. We are known for our service and flexibility and always aim to consistently exceeding the expectations of our customers. I will continue to put customers first, seeking their feedback so we can continue to evolve as a business and continuously improve. We aim always to be better tomorrow than we are today.”

The eSack range
Available as either a wall mounted fixed dispenser or a portable integrated dispenser, the eSack range makes it possible to ‘dispense with the mess’. The CHSA accredited sacks are non-gusseted and leak proof meaning they are hygienic. The large capacity rolls minimise the time refilling the dispenser. eSack also has strong environmental credentials. The sacks are made from 100% recycled polythene and the packaging and portable dispensing systems from 100% recycled cardboard.
