Team

Team

We are immensely proud of our people. Over two thirds of the Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd colleagues have been with the company for over 15 years. From our field based sales professionals to ‘back office’ support, every individual in our friendly team is an expert in his or her area of work and is dedicated to providing a first class customer experience. Meet the key members of our team:

Management
Robert Ward
Robert Ward: Managing Director

I work in a number of roles, regularly liaising with our valued customers and suppliers. My background in paper and board also means I work closely on packaging innovation and reducing the environmental impact of the products we manufacture. Outside of work, I am a full time taxi driver for my 5 children and also enjoy watching (and sometimes playing) most sports when I get a chance to.

Peter Ward
Peter Ward: Chairman

I built and sold my previous business, Brierley Almond Limited to Bunzl plc in 1999, creating the Bunzl Retail Division. Now as Chairman of Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd I am enjoying the challenge of working with a young and forward thinking management team to grow a successful business once again in a dynamic and ever changing industry. Outside work, I enjoy my large family (13 grandchildren), watching most sports, particularly soccer and rugby, and playing golf (not very well).

Kath
Kath: General Manager

I joined Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd in January 2017, after working in the Textile Industry for 27 years, during which time I have held a number of manufacturing based roles, using operational excellence and Lean tools to problem solve and sustain improvements.  I am responsible for the day to day operations at Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd. I enjoy working with people, forward thinking and dynamic  company.  My role also includes liaising with sales and suppliers to support the supply chain, and service to our customers.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family.  Gardening, walking, watching sport, and when time allows, trying to play golf !!

Finance

My role is to look after the finance side of the business. From sales & purchase ledgers to credit control & management accounts. I joined Anderton Board in 2018 having previous worked for a flexible packaging company and the RSPCA. I enjoy the day to day challenges that come my way at Anderton Board and I am looking forward to my career development in the coming years. Outside of work I enjoy yoga, spending time with my family and my cat Bruce, who I rescued from the RSPCA

Operations
Warren
Warren : Operations Manager

I have worked for Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd for several years and I have to say there is never a dull day (no two days are the same.) My job entails many varied daily tasks from stock control and liaising with suppliers to production planning and much more. One of the best ways to describe Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd is that it promotes an employee friendly environment and is a pleasure to work for. Outside of work I like spending time with my wife and two children, watching and playing football, gardening, DIY and paying the odd visit to the cinema.

Tony
Tony: Factory Manager

My job involves ensuring all orders are planned and issued to the relevant machines and then to ensure they are completed and all ready for despatch on time. Also to ensure all staff are happy and clear in all their roles and that proper training is given. I enjoy coming up with a solution to any problems that crop up and being involved within my team. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with the wife and two teenage sons and enjoy walking and watching all sports.

Martin
Martin : Conversion Supervisor

I have worked for Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd since 1999,  during this time I have progressed to the role of warehouse supervisor. My role as a supervisor varies daily but this has enabled me to gather experience and knowledge in many different areas including staff development and support, operating  different Machines and learning to operate any new machines as we progress and develop our production area. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere on the warehouse floor and the challenges that we face each day in getting jobs out to meet deadlines or moving schedules around to satisfy the customers.

Outside of work I enjoy spending my time with my three children and weather permitting getting out on my motorbike (fair weather rider) I also enjoy spending time with my partner going camping in the summer and on holidays abroad.

Mike
Mike: Warehouse Supervisor

I’ve been at Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd for almost 20yrs. My job entails unloading trailers, picking, despatch and making sure orders go out on time. Working at Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd is a joy.

Outside of work I like to watch football (Man Utd!) and I play for a pool team at my local pub. I like going on long walks with my wife and pooch at the weekend, not to forget my love of going on holidays abroad, recently heading to deep south America and India.

Steve
Steve : Production Designer

Along with the day to day Health and Safety responsibilities of our Trafford Park site, I also look after costing all converted enquiries and assigning & distributing production across our converting machinery. I particularly enjoy the atmosphere that exists at Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd and the great relationship we enjoy with our other group companies. Mostly, my spare time revolves around my two young children but when I can I also enjoy playing squash and following my beloved football team Manchester United.

Sales
Damian
Damian : Commercial Manager

As Commercial Manager at Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd, I enjoy getting to know each customer and understanding their operations, to ensure that they have the best, fit for purpose packaging solution for their business. I look after sales for both Trafford Park and Grimsby sites and find the multiplicity of the customer base means that each day is both highly diverse and enjoyable - working with customers on new ideas, developing and sourcing products can be inspiring and very rewarding.

I am supported by an excellent team, who all play a very important part in ensuring that our valued customers are provided with the highest standards of quality and service.

Away from work, time with family is very important and currently our 4 Grandchildren keep my wife and I very busy. We both love to travel - and if I have any spare time left over, I relish a round of golf.

Nick
Nick : Sales Manager, Conversion Division

I joined Anderton Board & Packaging Ltd in 1996 after selling corrugated boxes for 17 years. I liaise with customers in the Furniture, Poultry, Air Conditioning, Printing, Glassmaking and Decorating industries. I enjoy seeking out new products for us to manufacture, bringing them to market and working with colleagues who I have got to know over many years. My family is very important to me and my two teenagers keep me on my toes. I like watching sport, theatre, reading crime novels, DIY (trying not to be Mr Bodge), and enjoy walking, particularly on the Yorkshire coastal paths.

My daily routine involves data integrity, writing and running various analytical reports, producing management reports and other ad hoc reports. I am also involved in various customer services tasks, booking on deliveries, processing purchase orders and assisting on stock control.
Every day is varied. We are a close team who are always happy to help each other out.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, holidays in Portugal and dining out (which means I’m a lifelong member of Weight Watchers!!)
