Antalis Packaging has appointed Tom Reid as its new national sales manager for stretch film. Mr Reid’s primary responsibility will be to help all stretch film users understand the importance of having the correct solution in place when it comes to pallet wrapping.

The new national sales manager will also help to educate users about where pallet wrapping improvements can be made via film and machine optimisation, alternative films or by using new equipment.

Antalis says it can offer an onsite pallet wrap assessment that takes roughly 30 minutes per machine – and time is the only obligation for the user, making it a highly convenient and effective method.

Mr Reid commented, ‘The recent plastic packaging tax is a real challenge when it comes to stretch film. I’m working to offer customers alternative solutions which can completely negate the additional cost of the plastic tax, as well as introducing further savings and environmental benefits. I can confidently say that nine times out of 10, we can offer a recommendation that is going to offer a cost saving of 20% or more, accompanied by environmental improvements through the reduction of plastic and CO2. Given the ever-growing environmental concerns, this is invaluable for users who are seeking to reduce their film consumption.’
