Leslie Harris-Ward joins Medica Packaging
Over the last few months, Medica Packaging Ltd has been working closely with Leigh Print and Packaging Ltd to manage a seamless takeover of its customers’ work, following Leigh Print’s founder and owner Leslie Harris-Ward’s decision to wind up the business.
For over 25 years, Leigh Print, in Essex, has specialised in the design and print of a variety of forms of packaging. Due to its high levels of customer service and quality of production, Leigh Print has developed a strong customer base over the years in several markets, including the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors in which Medica Packaging specialises.
Medica’s CEO John Bath and Leslie Harris-Ward have been meeting with Leigh Print’s customers in recent weeks to ensure the smooth transition of accounts across to Medica’s facility in Crewe.
Leslie Harris-Ward believes Medica’s commitment to high quality and service provides the perfect fit for his customers. Leslie was so impressed with Medica’s operation and business values that he has agreed to join Medica’s team as a New Business Development Manager.
Commenting, Leslie said, “Having separated from the Benson group in late 2014, Medica has really set out its stall with its strategy of “Growth through Excellence”. When our two companies began talking, I was extremely impressed with the clear focus and vision of the business. Medica is delivering market leading customer service with top quality product, so I know Leigh Print’s customers are in excellent hands. I am delighted to be joining Medica’s team and look forward to helping the company to continue its business growth.”
Medica’s CEO John Bath said, “Leigh Print has built a strong reputation over quarter of a century, producing quality folding cartons for its customers. Our two companies shared similar values and Leslie Harris-Ward has a lifetime of industry experience, so this was a natural move for our business. We are delighted that Leslie is joining our team, and we look forward to the benefit we will gain from his wealth of knowledge and expertise.”
