Eco Flexibles has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of Lee Ralph as commercial and supply chain manager.

Eco Flexibles is a UK headquartered sustainable flexible packaging business that is rapidly growing and reporting significant commercial success in both North America and Europe. Mr Ralph is hoped to ‘galvanise’ the commercial team and enable the business to keep pace with surging demand for its lightweight recyclable packaging options.

Eco Flexibles director Matt Francklow commented, ‘We’re delighted to welcome Lee to our team, and he brings a great deal of experience with him. Lee honed his skills working with major global packaging players as well as for UK Food manufacturers, making him perfectly placed to support our business as we grow.’

Eco Flexibles is a sustainable packaging supplier that offers bespoke sustainable packaging options, alongside its range of standard pouches, skin films, lidding films and film-on-a-reel products, designed for VFFS and HFFS applications.

Mr Ralph said, ‘It’s clear that the Eco Flexibles approach to sustainable flexible packaging is hitting all the right notes with brands. The business has big ambitions and is already well on course to deliver, and I’m looking forward to playing my part. As commercial and supply chain manager, I’ll be responsible for maintaining and developing our unique value-add processes and ensuring our customers receive the best experience they require.’

He continued, ‘It’s not too often that a business comes along with the intention of shaking up established packaging norms, so it’s no surprise that its proving successful – particularly in the face of important legislative changes that could easily catch brands by surprise. At Eco Flexibles, we effectively complete the process in reverse. Where many suppliers offer products to fit an application, we tailor a solution around the brand and the application needs. This creates a lightweight monopolymer packaging that takes sustainability from buzz word to real commercial edge.’
