• Blake to open 3rd Hub of Excellence in Manchester

        • As part of the company’s overall growth strategy, Blake has been continuing to work on the development of its ‘Hubs of Excellence’. In the north of the country, Manchester and Leeds were highlighted as key strategic targets for launching the Hubs. With the second hub launched in Leeds, in January, Blake has now announced the opening of its third in Manchester.

          The main aim of the Hubs is to provide experts in the field of envelopes and postal packaging in key strategic areas across the country; Ensuring they are fully immersed and placed right where the ‘print and paper industry action’ is. The launch of the hub ties in with Blake now enlisting a number of members, previously working within the Print-On sales team who will be heading up the new hub. Having worked in the industry collectively for over 50 years, three new additions will bring essential expertise and knowledge of the envelope and print sector.

          Michael Barter, Managing Director said, “expertise is the governing principal in setting up our ‘Hubs of Excellence’. Location is of course significant but without appointing real experts in the envelope field, equipped with the necessary knowledge to effectively assist our customers their success will be limited. We’re therefore delighted that our third hub has now been set up and welcome Caterina, Lorraine and Louise to the Blake team.                                           

          “The new members of our team also bring with them essential knowledge of the print industry, crucial for our desired diversification into postal packaging. We all know that envelopes volumes are declining and have been for the last 8 years so we need to be moving into different product sectors to maintain our growth and we see postal packaging as that area.”
