• Blake expands with first 'hub of excellence'

        • Postal packaging firm, Blake, has opened its first ‘hub of excellence’ in Edinburgh, as part of the company’s 2017 expansion plans.

          The new hub, that opened in October on Dublin Street in Edinburgh, aims to provide each UK area with an expert in the field of envelopes and postal packaging. The Edinburgh hub will be managed and run by Dario Valente who joined Blake with his knowledge of the envelope and postal packaging industry.

          Michael Barter, Managing Director at Blake Envelopes said, “I have always had great respect for Dario and he was a formidable competitor in years gone by, so having him on the Blake team is a bonus and an asset; his extensive contacts, popularity and recent successful activity, fully justifies our choice to have Dario as Regional Hub Manager for Scotland.

          “I was very impressed on recent customer visits with Dario and the opportunities available in Scotland - clearly the country is prospering. This fully confirms our decision to make a commitment to Scotland with Edinburgh as the template for our hub plans. Dario’s contacts and customers have been very supportive and we look forward to their continued backing to make this hub a roaring success.”

          Blake is planning to open more hubs in a number of strategic UK locations throughout 2017.
