Container glass manufacturer Encirc has appointed Paul Williams as its new 360 Development Director, with Mark Holmes hired to take over Mr Williams’ previous role as Beverages General Manager.

The pair will work together to bolster the company’s filling and supply chain offering following a period of growth and investment.

Mr Williams’ work will involve driving Encirc’s ‘360’ proposition, which sees the company manufacturing, filling and shipping some of the world’s drinks brands directly to retailers, all from a single purpose-built location in Elton, Cheshire, UK.

Taking over as Beverages General Manager, Mr Holmes said: “Our adaptability as a company is key to our success.

“Despite the pandemic, thanks to our fantastic team, we were able to respond to the massive peak in demand from the off-trade, with our essential workforce helping keep cupboards stocked and shelves filled during COVID-19.

“While Paul’s team will act as the bridge between logistics and dispatch, I’ll be ensuring our filling operations remain ultra-efficient, and our customers continue to receive a market-leading, low-carbon service.”
