Press Release, 8th June 2015

UK and Asia based speciality packaging supplier Parkside has appointed John Taylor and Gan Chin Hock to boost trade in Asia.

Parkside opened the world class manufacturing facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia back in March 2010. It was the company’s first overseas production facility. With state of the art laminating and coating equipment, the site has gone from strength to strength, becoming a pivotal part of the Parkside business, allowing greater global strategic alignment with its customers.

John Taylor has become the new Managing Director of Parkside Asia, supported by Gan Chin Hock as the new Sales Manager for the region.

With over 30 years of leadership experience, Taylor comes from a Managing Director role at ThyssenKrupp Aerospace China, which is a subsidiary of the international ThyssenKrupp Group business. Hock brings his expertise to Parkside after working in the business development division of MeadWestvaco, a Packaging Solutions Company in Malaysia.

Parkside Managing Director, Nick Smith, says, “By strengthening our team out in Malaysia, it demonstrates Parkside’s commitment to the region and will help deliver further growth for the business whilst improving the supply chain to our Asian customer base. It also ensures our high standards for quality and service continue to be maintained for the future.”
