GWP Protective has promoted sales manager Richard Coombes to the position of general manager at the firm’s Salisbury site.

The company manufactures protective cases for a wide range of clients.

Mr Coombes, 34, right, has been employed at the firm’s Old Sarum base for ten years. He began with the company as a factory operator, but soon moved up into a middle management role before taking responsibility for sales.

“We’ve spent some time implementing some new procedures, and now I’m really pleased about being given the challenge of driving our success forward,” he said.

“We’ve been delivering ten per cent above budget for the past couple of years, and it’s very exciting to be part of the next phase of GWP Protective’s achievements.”

Ian Heskins, business development director of GWP, added: “GWP have always encouraged and rewarded talent and commitment, “Richard is one of our new generation of enthusiastic, skilled and forward thinking business managers who are helping us keep GWP at the forefront of the protective packaging and protective industry.”
