Blake reports record breaking year
| 12 January, 2018
In a market that saw a continued volume reduction of envelope usage by 5%, postal packaging brand Blake have bucked the trend with a 12.5% growth increase year on year, with November being a record-breaking month.
Michael Barter, CEO, reflects back over a successful year: “At the end of 2016 we came up with the concept of creating ‘Hubs of Excellence’ across the UK, in answer to recruitment challenges we have had in attracting top envelope talent to Yeovil. In 2017 the concept became a reality with the opening of Leeds, Manchester and London, managed by teams of experienced professionals from the envelope, paper and packaging sector. The success of this concept has encouraged us to open more offices in 2018, and three further locations are being considered.”
Following on from a successful 2017 Blake will also be launching a new envelope product book in the upcoming weeks. The new book will see further products being launched, most of which are new to Blake and see a closer alignment of our Creative Colour envelope range with our packaging offering.
