A North Shields business is celebrating its strongest ever performance after a record turnover of £20m.

Print, packaging and supply chain business Elanders UK moved to New York Business Park in 1999 with ambitions to almost treble its turnover from £7m.

The company, which employs 182 people at its North Tyneside headquarters, has invested in people, equipment and machinery.

Managing director Kevin Rogers said: “We’ve worked incredibly hard over the last 15 years to reach our target of £20m turnover, which is the highest turnover figure we have ever achieved.

“We have worked through some challenging times but have invested carefully in equipment, machinery and people to be able to align our service offering to the changing needs of our customers.

“We work closely with customers to deliver a fully rounded support system that includes our supply chain and e-commerce services.”

“Our approach is to act as a strategic partner for our customers and through our core business areas of supply chain, print, packaging and e-commerce, we help to optimise and develop the processes critical to their businesses, which could be the production of luxury goods, cosmetics and much more.

“While we’ve reached our target turnover, we won’t be resting on our laurels – the coming years will see us set stretching targets for Elanders and further hard work to establish our packaging offer.

“We see the north east as Elanders’ UK home, so investing in our local workforce is key for our future.”

Elanders UK is part of Elanders Group, which is a company with operations in 15 countries on four continents.
