Lesters recruits experts as it pushes ahead with £25m target


The Staffordshire-based company has seen revenues grow 120% over the last twelve months, and is aiming to hit £25m in revenues by 2025.

Furman has more than 33 years’ experience working in the industrial corrugated marketplace for blue-chip companies and is bringing his knowledge, processes and experience to the firm


He will also be tasked with aligning new design and manufacturing capabilities with the group’s in-house warehousing and logistics operations.

“This is a very exciting time to be joining Lesters, with a £7m investment drive in the latest technology and a focus on providing sustainable packaging solutions proving extremely popular with customers,” he said.


“Supply chain challenges are a big talking point for our customers. Recent events and uncertainty have created a need for many UK businesses to increase their security of supply for the critical packaging lines they require. This is where we come into our own, providing security of supply aligned with the most sustainable solutions.”

This has helped support the design and manufacture of a growing range of products, including octabins, pallet boxes, heavy duty packaging, bespoke die cut units, corrugated cartons and retail ready packaging, according to Burton.

The ‘large packaging’ specialist is also keen to innovate the materials it uses, as well as looking for new applications outside the world of packaging.

“Strengthening the design team was fundamental to achieving this objective and I’m really enjoying the freedom we have to challenge industry perceptions and develop new packaging solutions.

“There are some big questions out there currently. How do we make packaging lighter, greener and more versatile? How can we maximise the efficiency of the process by adding in a storage/logistics solution? Some of these we are finding answers for ourselves, others we are looking to collaborate with universities and R&D specialists to push the boundaries of what we can achieve with materials and applications.”

Billy Hutchinson, managing director of Lesters, added: “We’re doing things differently in the packaging sector and clients are responding by moving their business to us. More investment, more innovation and more talent will only make the Lesters offer even stronger.”
