The new owners of independent UK contract
packing company, 24-7 Steller Packing have spoken for the first time about the
steps they are taking to rebuild the business.

The buyout secured the future of 30
permanent jobs and over 100 temporary jobs but also prompted the start of an overhaul
of the company which had slipped into administration earlier that month due to
the loss of a large military contract.

That has been led by a new management team,
including Julian Williams-Dalson, whose invaluable expertise as head of operations
at ABP UK Ltd and group operations director, Anglo Dutch Meats will be vital to
the company’s future success.

Julian Williams-Dalson will have complete
oversight of operations as site director, leading a complete review of how 24-7
Steller Packing is run – from sales and production, to HR, finance and technical
matters.

This has already resulted in changes aimed
at transforming the way 24-7 Steller Packing operates – from an overhaul of the
management structure to the introduction of new processes and procedures to
boost productivity.

There will be more to
come in 2019, but the work to date is already seeing results – from stocktaking
through to costings, quality management, accreditations and formal staff
training.  Julian has also overseen the move to new premises that will
give the company the right configuration of space to enhance production and
storage space.

We are very fortunate to have someone of
the calibre of Julian Williams-Dalson as our site director. His experience and expertise
in this industry will be vital as we turn around the business. He will be ably
supported by a new management team who will oversee improvements that will help
to transform the way we operate and the way we deliver for our customers across
the UK.

Julian Williams-Dalson, group site director,
added: “What I like about this business is the potential. The customer
base, the products we pack; the kudos of working for everyone from leading
cosmetic brands to premium luxury retailers.”

“I’m
driven by success and can see a great opportunity here. We have got the right
experience in situ, the right people looking at the product who care about the
product and who care about the customers.  That’s the starting point on
which the management team and I are now looking to build.”
