David Williams, Managing Director of GTS (Europe) Ltd, has confirmed the appointment of Scott Leonard (pictured left) as Technical Sales Manager. With a background in electrical engineering, Leonard joined GTS in the final quarter of 2020. He is no stranger to the graphic arts and packaging industries, having worked for eight years as a Service Engineer within the Label industry primarily on flexographic printing presses, but also involved in litho, digital and finishing equipment with AB Graphics and Nilpeter.
“We are delighted to welcome Scott to our business,” states Williams. “Although 2020 was a rather turbulent year for the UK corrugated industry, we continue to reaffirm our position as a leading supplier of equipment and services to the market by adding more people to our team. Recruiting Scott comes off the back of two other major appointments, having seen Jamie McDonald and Mike Sanderson joining us in our technical support and engineering departments. Customers will benefit now from Scott’s experience and knowledge of electrical engineering and project management and he will be looking after the entire range of Emmepi Group materials handling and ancillary equipment solutions, working alongside myself and Paul Herson.”
“I am looking forward to getting to know our customer base in the UK and Ireland,” adds Leonard. “I have already learned a great deal about the corrugated packaging industry and look forward to sharing my knowledge gained in the label and graphics arts industries with customers over the coming months and years.”
